In September 2016, Chris Staples and Stuart Nelson, Elders from Living Hope on the Isle of Man, joined Cephas Mbewe from Lusaka for a 4 day conference with his church, Dynamic Worship Church International.
This was such an encouraging time with over 600 people attending. Specific ministry and teaching times happened with over 100 children, around 100 youth, 150 ladies, over 65 leaders as well as 5 times for the whole church. God moved strongly and many lives were touched. Over 40 people responded to the gospel, including some recommitting and it was especially encouraging to see the local leadership team following up immediately to connect them to the local church.
In addition teaching on the Holy Spirit, being an Acts 2 church and faithful giving saw many responding for prayer and commitment to living for Christ. Perhaps one of the most powerful times was with over 100 children led by Stuart, listening and joining in with the story of Jonah, something they hopefully will remember as they learn to pray. The conference concluded with a great celebration worshipping the risen Lord.
There was time to share with the whole church about the growing strength of relationship with Dynamic Worship Church International and it really felt like God was shaping, challenging and encouraging His church.
