“If you get a revelation of it, you will turn into a revolutionary.” – Dr. Bill Winston

Dr. Bill Winston and Bill Winston Ministries present Operation Ten City, a ten-city initiative purposed to inspire faith-based communities to activate hidden potential and pursue the fullness of God’s calling for their lives, businesses, and organizations.

Through a series of programming centered on community outreach, business and entrepreneurship, as well as faith and the supernatural, Operation Ten City supports the development of people and communities with a vision to see them access true economic prosperity and self-sufficiency through wealth-building and ownership.

Operation Ten City works to bring economic restoration and prosperity, and close the wealth gap in black and brown communities. By going after the wealth gap, Operation Ten City is going after poverty, which is the breeding ground for hopelessness/despair, sickness/disease, broken families, violence, and crime.

Closing the wealth gap is not done with handouts, which create dependency and destroy dignity. Operation Ten City’s approach to this is to create Producers in every city. This movement is coming to promote ownership in all forms—business ownership, home ownership, real estate ownership, stock ownership, and the like.

During the multi-day effort in each city, the Operation Ten City Team will host various community outreach efforts, including a food giveaway and expungement clinic. Saturday features a full-day of workshops, panel discussions, and masterclasses catered toward aspiring entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and business owners, led by Operation Ten City Host Dr. Bill Winston and various industry experts.

Operation Ten City also includes a Business Pitch Competition, Business Opportunity Expo, and Career Fair; a multi-sensory experience for next generation leaders, ages 13 to 21; and a praise and worship experience with a guest recording artist, followed by the “Night of Miracles” Healing Service.

Numerous giveaways and cash prizes will be awarded throughout the week’s events.

Developing People. Strengthening Communities.

Our Mission: Operation Ten City is a resource to metropolitan areas around the U.S., inspiring faith-based communities to activate hidden potential and pursue the fullness of God’s calling for their lives, businesses, and organizations.

Our Vision: To inspire people and communities to access true economic prosperity and self-sufficiency through wealth-building and ownership.

Our Foundation: Ezekiel 36:34-35, “The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.”
