It’s been a few weeks now since this year’s Together on a Mission conference. I’ve been meaning to post some comments for a while, but, as ever, life has been busy. I do wonder, those prolific bloggers – how do they get the time?! Anyway, I digress… Brighton…
I have to say, I thought it was great! Terry (Virgo) was outstanding, talking about the history and future of Newfrontiers. He reminded us of some of the things that are important to us as a movement and encouraged us to hold on to these as we move forward. These talks are well worth a listen (free download here) whether you’re new to Newfrontiers or have been around for years.
For the training track, I signed up to the one on preaching with John Hosier, Greg Haslam and Mbonisi Malaba (Bones). This was superb – really practical and very challening! I will be going through the notes with our other preachers at Jubilee.
PJ Smyth closed the conference with an excellent message about keeping it RAW (take Risks, have Authority and be Wild).
Conferences like this remind us of the strengths that are gained from being part of a worldwide family of churches. We are much stronger together than we are apart.
