For the first time this year, the Home Counties region that we are part of as Newfrontiers, will be hosting Front Edge. This is a conference that sees excellent faith-filling evangelistic equipping coupled with evangelists going into churches to preach the gospel and pray for the sick. I have had the pleasure of being involved in many of these around the country and am so excited that we will be doing one here in our region.
As I have said there are two elements - the first is on Saturday May 22nd. This will be a day that I will be calling as many RFCers to be at as possible. The two main speakers will be Lex Loizides and Adrian Holloway. The blurb below comes from the conference leaflet:
Lex was born again in Brighton and is now based in Jubilee Community Church , Cape Town. He has a wonderful combination of outrageous zeal and mature theology. His remarkable evangelistic gift has taken him all over the world. in recent years he has also been seeing an increased number of healings, both in Africa, and on his many visits to the UK.
Adrian is the author of two best-selling evangelistic books, The Shock of Your Life, and Aftershock, which tackles the most common objections to the Christian faith in the form of a novel. He is based at Christchurch, London where he serves alongside David Stroud, who leads the Newfrontiers UK team.
I will be getting more info out to people as the weeks go by, but I do think that this will be an important time for us as a church to come and listen to evangelists that are seeing great things in the name of Jesus and who are coming to equip us.
On the Sunday we will have an evangelist coming to visit us and before that Sunday we will have an opportunity hopefully to meet him. I too will be going to another church to preach and so as a church we will be extremely involved in all that is happening.
Put the 22nd and 23rd May in your diaries now and let's start praying and asking for God to move powerfully with us over that weekend, both in equipping and healings and salvation.
