Global 2020 – More Together

It was a huge privilege for me and Deb to host the Global 2020 online conference last week. The original plan had been to host the conference in Cyprus and gather the apostolic leaders and their teams, some 400 to 500 people. The Coronavirus pandemic meant that Global 2020 became an online conference, meaning that many thousands of us were able to join in from all around the world. This was the first time we had been able to gather the Newfrontiers family on such a scale since the Brighton conference in 2011, and I am delighted that around 70 different nations joined us online last week! What a great example of God finding opportunity within the crisis.

Over the course of three afternoons, we heard some outstanding messages from our guest speaker, Mark Sayers, and from David Devenish. If you missed them, or you would like to listen again, you can catch up with them via the Newfrontiers website. I also highly recommend David Devenish’s new book, Succession or Multiplication, which was launched last week and tells the Newfrontiers story from 2011, when our founding father, Terry Virgo, stepped down and handed over leadership to his spiritual sons.

On Wednesday afternoon, Dave and Liz Holden hosted a Zoom webinar for the apostolic leaders and their teams, where we took the opportunity to honour and thank David and Scilla Devenish, as David retires from leading the Newfrontiers Together Team. This is a role he has fulfilled with great wisdom and insight, and it was good to be able to express our gratitude. We also took the chance to thank John and Linda Lanferman, as John also takes a well-earned retirement from serving on the Newfrontiers Together Team. It was a huge privilege to then be prayed for myself as I pick up the baton from David Devenish and start leading the Newfrontiers Together Team.

Other highlights of Global 2020 were the videos showing just some of the many mercy ministries and church planting initiatives that are happening in churches right around the globe. From North America to South America, from Africa, to Asia and right across Europe, our churches are working to express God’s heart for his people and see Kingdom impact. It was deeply moving to see how far and wide the reach of Newfrontiers has gone, and we pray that in the years to come God will take us even further.

I cannot finish this blog without taking the time to thank Brett Melville and the rest of the outstanding technical team behind Global 2020. We are extremely grateful to them for pulling off such a remarkable multi-platform, multi-lingual online event without a hitch. Well done guys - and thank you!

An Invitation to Global 2020

I’d like to invite you to join me at the Newfrontiers Global 2020 conference next week. This promises to be an excellent few days, and moving the conference online means that more friends from around the world will be able to participate than ever before. I will be hosting, together with my wife Deb, and our very own King’s band will be involved in the worship. We are thrilled to have Mark Sayers from Melbourne, Australia, as our guest speaker. Mark is a pastor and a well-known author and commentator on issues around culture and Christianity. We also have the joy of hearing David Devenish close the conference on the last day.

Global 2020 takes place next week over three afternoons –  13th, 14th and 15th October – starting next Tuesday at 2pm (UK time). It is free to attend and can be accessed via the Newfrontiers website. The daily sessions will be just an hour long, so why not take a late lunch hour next Tuesday and join us? I hope to see you there!

I am delighted to let you all know that I have made a good recovery after my recent, short period of illness. I am grateful to God for His grace in sustaining me through this season and also for the prayers of many, both here at King’s and throughout the Newfrontiers family. Prayer is powerful!

It’s good to be back and I hope you enjoy listening to my latest video update.
