LifeLinks Conference 2019

Wednesday – Friday, Oct 23-25, 2019

This year’s theme is “Greater: Earnestly Seeking the Greater Gifts.” We are confident that this conference will inspire and provoke all of us to “earnestly desire the greater gifts” (1 Cor. 12:31), giving us the tools to continually provide effective ministry and expand God’s Kingdom.


MAIN SESSIONS


WEDNESDAY 7:00 PM – Mark Hughes “Power to the People”  

The early church was birthed only after the Holy Spirit descended upon God’s people with gifts of power.  If Peter, John and James needed the empowering of the Holy Spirit to succeed in their day, how much more do we need it today?  The goal of this session is to carefully distinguish the various gifts available to the church today and how they bring power to the people.


THURSDAY 9:00 AM – Jeff Leake “Theology of Multiplication”

God has designed his people to operate in territory taking faith, and to function in out of the gifts that God has given to us. Stepping into that future requires that we do more than just go, it requires that we be sent.


THURSDAY 7:00 PM – Jeff Leake “How to Lead Your Way Out of Anything”


FRIDAY 9:00 AM – Jeff Leake “Leading Out of Faith” 

There is a difference between having vision and having faith.  But if we don’t lead out of faith, we will operate out of our own wisdom and strength, even if we have the most strategic vision ever created.  Truly supernatural personal and ministry breakthrough must be birthed out of faith


FRIDAY 1:30 PM – Paul Reid “Challenges for LifeLinks and the Church”

Looking at some of the issues that will face us during a transition and looking into the future at some of the things we as the Church will have to face in the 21C. From LGBTQ to transgender conflicts to new models of church, Paul will take a peek at some of these issues.


FRIDAY 7:00 PM – Dave Wells & Ian Byrd – LifeLinks Leadership Transition Service

A celebration of the years of leadership of Dave & Linda Wells as Team Leader of the LifeLinks Network and the transition and commission of the role to Ian & Val Byrd.
