We gathered for a KX leaders day at the Bluecoat venue in Liverpool this week.
Right from the start it was obvious that this is an extended family with a big vision. The tone was relaxed and informal yet intense in its clear goals and prophetic vision, an amazing combination of urgency and refreshing companionship. From the corporate worship time to the end where we stood and cried out to God in intercession and prayer of our family of churches there was a real feeling of movement and seeking God for every step of His direction for us to impact this nation. We were small in number but large in our influence I felt.
Nic’s prophetic guidance on spiritual warfare was very timely and there was an apostolic weight to the call, I pray we heed it, pursue it and become intentional in all we do to model praying with passion and faith for a new generation and for taking new territory. I also feel the timing of what Ruth Perrin spoke on about the millennials and the opportunities with that generation was really where God wants us to be more intentional. The call from both Ruth and also Josh Cutting from FORM I felt was very much a call from God’s heart for this time. It simply must be on our prayer agenda, our time agenda, it must be built into our discipleship culture and our lives to coach, raise up and walk with that generation. Jesus himself chose most of his disciples from just that age range and it was clearly effective!
I came away with a greater sense of family, a clearer prophetic vision and the feeling that as a family of churches on a mission we are living in an amazing time with amazing opportunities. The day lifted my gaze, clarified my priorities and bonded me with a great group of friends all living our lives in the same direction – it doesn’t get much better than that for a leader.
