Forward from Matt & Doni Hogarty
We present to you the audio recordings from the 2018 Sent Conference hosted by Oasis Church from 12 – 15 July 2018 in Howick KZN. Strong families are key to sustaining revival, and we witnessed another wonderful time of God imparting to us through keynote speakers, extravagant worship times and fun together.
John 20:19-23 is a tipping point moment for the early church and the advancement of the Kingdom across the world. Here we see a group of Jesus followers who have retreated into hiding after Jesus’ death because of fear, and in so doing find themselves alienated from the very world they have been called to reach with the Gospel. This situation feels a lot like the church today! As difficult circumstances, crippling fears, mounting intimidation and unresolved pain threaten to side track us from our divine purpose – now is the time to allow the Father to breathe fresh courage on His people.
Although this story in John 20 starts out somewhat hopeless, it doesn’t end there. Everything changes when Jesus shows up. He releases Peace into his disciples’ hearts, breathes afresh on them as they receive the Holy Spirit and reminds them that they have been SENT into the world to redeem all things. During this conference we saw that God had set us up for a John 20 encounter – one that stills our hearts with Peace, one that breathes fresh strength into us as we make space for the Holy Spirit to empower us, and one that equips us to be SENT into the world to transform culture.
We invite you to become part of this tipping point moment and help shape history! This is the time to advance…
