  6. Living on the Frontline

    One of the things the Kairos Connexion development team are up to is creating tools and new forms of training to help churches become able to live as the church was always intended to be – full of power and authority, vibrant communities, sharing the good news of Jesus to those we find ourselves living and working amongst. Over the next year we will be offering those to the Kx family and beyond.

    One of the first of those is a new and updated edition of Nic Harding’s book on spiritual warfare entitled ‘Living on the Frontline: A beginner’s guide to spiritual warfare.’

    ‘This second expanded edition of Living on the Frontline incorporates further teaching on prayer and the use of corporate weapons of warfare. This beginner’s guide to spiritual warfare is essential for any Christian who wants to work together with Jesus and his church to ultimately deliver the deathblow to the enemy. This updated edition of Living on the Frontline was developed in response to an unprecedented level of attacks on key leaders and churches, especially in the areas of false accusation, marriage pressures, illness and premature death. It will help to equip individual Christians and churches to defend themselves more effectively and enforce the victory of the cross in their situations.’

    The book will be available to buy at the official launch at our Leaders Day on Wednesday 22nd November or you can order it from Amazon here.  We highly recommend it to you!

  8. Discipleship That Works – Workshop in Harrogate

    The Kx North Yorkshire hub are hosting another discipleship and mission workshop this September and they’d love you to join them.

    We’re convinced that all Christians are invited to live as a disciple in every part of their lives, not just on Sundays in a church service. We will explore ideas about how to live as disciples in our neighbourhoods, schools, workplaces, families and communities.

    We’re called to live one whole life where Jesus is Lord of every part, being people who are good news to those around us. There’s an adventure to be had and a story to be part of and we want to share that with you too!

    More details on speakers and workshops coming soon. Lunch is included.

    Please register your place on www.discipleshipthatworks.eventbrite.co.uk.  Payment will be taken on the door.

     

  9. Form UK Stories

    We love Form!  An intense year of discipleship, rooted in a culture of leadership and mission running in several Kx family churches.   Last week we shared some stories from Form USA,  here is a video of similar stories from Form UK trainees.

    There are three ways you can get involved in form.

    1.  Give a year to form as a trainee yourself and see see what God can do!
    2.  Recommend form to one or two young adults from your church and send them off on a life changing adventure!
    3.  Start a Form training centre at your church.

    To find out more about each of these head to www.form-uk.org.

  10. God Can Radically Change Your Life Through Form

    FORM is an intensive year-long discipleship internship for young adults, currently running in 4 locations in the UK and also in the USA.  Here are a few stories from this years trainees at Form Fort Wayne, Indiana about what God has done with them over the past year.

    “FORM Fort Wayne year number two was a great success! We had nine new trainees and three young adults returning for a more intense year of leadership training. Here are some questions we asked them with answers…
    How has FORM been worth the investment of the cost and nine months of your life?
    • Without FORM it would have taken me probably nine years instead of nine months to learn to hear the voice of the Lord – Hannah
    • It help me grow in commitment- Ross
    • FORM has been worth the cost because it has made a substantial and lasting difference in how I view my relationship with Christ, my relationship with others, and what following God with my whole life really means – Malachi
    • FORM has drastically changed my life. It has pruned my character, altered my life goals, produced many skills I was unaware I had, and has given me a deep hunger and thirst for Holy Spirit, His presence and His power – Wardell
    • It has taught me how to live opposite the American dream and truly live a life worth living and for a worthy God -Hayden
    • I think Form is an amazing opportunity. Giving up a whole year to hear/pursue God I think is something God really honors. If you allow Him, God can radically change your life through Form. It is definitely worth your time because it teaches you how to live in community and gives you some great tools to help you in your relationship with God -Brandy
    • It has shifted my perception of ministry and forever changed my approach to reaching people with the Gospel. Form experience = Priceless – Daren
    How have you changed the way you live?
    • I consult God more with my decision making – Ross
    • I have an increased focus on intentionally making room for God’s will in my days and decisions both through more set aside time to spend with Him and a greater awareness of His desires for my life – Malachi
    • I no longer chase money, relationships, or self gratification. I now prioritize my time to read the word, pray, seek Holy Spirit, and share the Kingdom with everyone around me by sharing the Good News of Jesus’ death and resurrection – Wardell
    • I’ve gained freedom from sin struggles, as well as I don’t spend all my time worried about the pursuit of the American dream – Hayden
    • I quit neglecting the “little” stuff and do them despite not knowing the end results – Dan
    • Creating predictable patterns and rhythms. Used to fly by the seat of my pants, now I’ve learned to keep my belt on, and fastened tight – Daren
    • I’ve started to see my life differently than I have in the past. Everything is an opportunity. I have started to become more aware of God in day to day life. I’ve started to put on the armour of God before I go to work. I’ve started to see ways I can fight against the enemy. Praying/talking to God is becoming even more important to me – Brandy
