Are we in a New Season?
Are we in a New Season? Is God doing something new? I and many others are sensing we are stepping into a new season and it is causing us to evaluate everything we do in light of this. Many of us have sought to do our best over the years of our ministry – to…
Humble Yourself Western Church
Is the western church arrogant? There is much to suggest we are – but peel back our glossy covers and we are likely to see some unimpressive realities.
Don’t Take A Census?
Leaders want to assess their strengths – but when King David called a census it was an offence to God, resulting in an awful judgement for the community. What lessons can we learn from this today?
Arise With New Confidence
Church leaders confidence has taken a bit of a hit as a result of the changing landscape we are ministering into. But what have we really been putting our confidence in?
Are You A Lover Or Fighter?
In these days of great shaking, Gods people need to put on the FULL armour of God. If we don’t then we will melt like chocolate teapots at the first sign of hot water
We Are Too Strong
We are too strong! But like me I suspect you think you are not strong enough. After all, I have weaknesses, shortcomings, lack, inabilities and blindspots.

This global ‘earthquake’ has had…

New Opportunities For Discipleship
How many books have you read about discipleship? If you are a church leader then you have probably read quite a few. I have – I’ve loved them all (well maybe not quite all) – but I’m aware of a frustrating gap between many of their idealogical concepts and practical implementation in our lives. Are…
A 630 Mile UK Prayer Gathering
We’ve just launched something that 9 months ago was nothing more than a crazy dream. Last summer Nita and I were walking our dogs on a section of the South West Coast Path. It’s a path that has attracted millions of walkers over the years with most completing small sections but some actually making a…
