Advance Global Conference

Last week, Deb and I had the huge privilege of joining Advance for their Global conference, which was hosted brilliantly by Brian and Rachel Barr and One Life Church in Houston. This is one the fastest growing churches I have visited recently, and Deb and I are looking forward to being with them again later this year.

The combination of God-centred worship, excellent preaching and outstanding Texan hospitality all contributed to the conference being a rich experience. Some 500 people were in attendance, gathered from all across the world. On the Wednesday afternoon, Bryan Mowrey, who leads Confluence family of churches, and I had the joy of praying for Alan and Rynelle Frow as Alan was recognised as leader of their Global Team. At the same time, three excellent new couples were prayed into the team. All of this brings a real sense of security and strength to this growing family of churches. I am confident that Advance will continue to make a major contribution to our Newfrontiers family in the years ahead.

We have returned from the States tired but encouraged, although the combination of jet lag and a virus we both picked up on the trip meant we had to miss being with King’s this last Sunday. However, we are excited to be worshipping with our home church this coming weekend and look forward to hearing Andrew Wilson continue in our new series in 1 Samuel. If you have missed any of the messages so far, you can catch up here.
