Purity in Power - Christy Wimber | 1st Floor Hall
Power sales. Weakness is not popular. But there is a high cost to moving in power, otherwise, everyone would be moving in it. There are invitations by the Spirit of God into more of who He is, and the high call of entrustment to steward God power well. Power in any form, if not broken and yielded to and by the Spirit of God can do much damage. Christy will share some things in her own life and journey of walking, leading and living in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Christy has been a part of the Vineyard Movement since it began. She worked at Vineyard Ministries International for several years until Vineyard Music was formed. She then served as the Director for Worship Conferences and Training at Vineyard Music where she was involved in many of Vineyard Worship’s projects and equipping resources that have been duplicated around the world. Her latest project is her new book entitled, “Transformed,” to be released in March, 2017. One of her great loves is to spend the majority of her time encouraging and equipping the Church worldwide in being a resource to their community, including moving in power ministry. Christy and Sean have been married for 27 years, and have two children, Camie Rose, 25 years, who was married in 2015 to Caleb Johnson and John Richard II, 17 years. They reside in Yorba Linda, California
Evangelism - Yinka Oyekan | Seminar Room 1

Shaping Leaders Who Shape Society - Jurie Kriel | School Room
God has a better shape in mind for society than the shape it is in. The church is His plan to get society in shape. The greatest hindrance to this is the shortage of leaders to grow and shape the church and to effectively reach the communities they are in. In this seminar we explore how to identify, develop and release leaders of influence to shape society.
Jurie has been part of the Doxa Deo leadership in South Africa where he has lead a church in Pretoria, while overseeing several others and also been closely involved in an urban church plant.
Before becoming part of Doxa Deo he co-founded and led a Bible school called The Timothy Leadership Team – training many people that are today actively involved in full time ministry all across the world.
Jurie believes in communicating God’s word in such a way that is not only understood but remembered, and not just remembered but applied. To this end he ministered extensively throughout South Africa and internationally.
He and his wife Karin have been married for 16 years and have two boys, Joshua (11) and Ethan (8) who are continuously teaching him more than he could ever wish to teach them.
Jurie and his family is currently in the proses of relocating to the US. They will be planting a church in downtown Austen, Texas, where less than 10% of people are currently practicing the Christian faith.
