Brandon Schaefer from Five Capitals is coming to the Kx North West Hub on September 14th & 15th. The Kx hub leaders recently spent some time with Brandon and found his input extremely helpful.
This is how Five Capitals describe what they do:
What does it look like to consistently live out a life that’s integrated, full, and impactful? It starts with our priorities, how we view them and live them out. To help participants assess and sort out the
priorities of life – we help them discern the “capital” they have in their life. Where do they have time, resources, insights, experiences, relationships to invest to truly and intentionally go after what they desire for their life?
More details about programme and how to book are coming soon, but it will include a focus on business leaders and entrepreneurs and being a disciple in the workplace.
If you can’t get to the event in September or if you want to get into some of Brandon’s teaching before then, he has let us know about a 5-week webinar series on ‘The Four Essentials of Business’ which is starting next week on Thursday 3rd May. Click here for a flyer with more details. Brandon has given Kx subscribers a gift – if you sign up and use the code “ThriveWithEssentials”you will get a $75 discount.
Reaching a whole town or city with the gospel. Saturating a place with good news. Completing the great commission where I live. If any of these thoughts excite you then you’ll be pleased to know that a number of places are beginning to ask the questions ‘what might that look like round here?’
As I’ve had the opportunity to explore and experiment with some of these ideas in the Liverpool city region in recent years, I’ve been asked to input to a number of other places – specifically Chester, Ipswich, Newcastle and Basingstoke this term.
What would it look like if in 10 years in your place everyone knew someone whose life had been transformed by Jesus? What if every neighbourhood had a small group of Christians living out life together, praying for their streets, practically blessing their neighbours, finding the people of peace, creating pathways to faith, and producing disciple-makers?
What if we did this so that everyone knew where to get spiritual bread, to get practical help, and to find Jesus? What if we multiplied these groups so that there was one missional expression of church (an MC in our language) for every 1000 people (#1in1000)?
This is our dream for seeing people and places transformed by the gospel.
Here’s a bunch of 15+ of those kind of Christians in Liverpool who are praying and plotting to do just that for their neighbourhood. Current plans for the next couple of months include:
helping a neighbour with an overgrown garden.
continuing to befriend the night-time security guard who watches a particular footballer’s mum’s house in our street.
serving and blessing the local catholic primary school in our street (flapjacks for the receptionist so far).
taking round bunches of daffodils for the women in our street over the mother’s day weekend and inviting their families to the Easter service.
Here is an exciting opportunity, linked to one of our Kx Hubs, from Dave Hammond.
Burton Green is a small village on the edge of Coventry. HS2 will come very close, houses have been sold to pave the way.
It has 30 years of prophecy over it. About a flag being raised their and precipitating a move of God across the city. It has been prayed for faithfully through the whole time.
It sits in 3 different Anglican parishes, it’s affluent, its comfortable, but deeply affected by HS2.
There is a church service led by faithful older folk on the first Sunday of the month with 20-30 gathering. It is highly likely that 400 new houses will be built in the area and the small church primary school will be expanded.
It is just down the road from St John’s, Westwood. We have a band of about 8-10 people interested in, no passionate about building a kingdom expression in the village.
There is no leader, I keep trying to find a way to call someone to lead these efforts, but to no avail. As a movement we have talked about planting. Here is an opportunity.
Are there missionaries in the movement who would be interested to find out more?
Nic Harding has just released an expanded and updated version of his book ‘Living on the Frontline: A Beginners Guide to Spiritual Warfare.’ It’s a must read for anyone wanting to learn both the defensive ways of warfare prayer, but also how to pray to see God’s Kingdom advance in our nation. Listen to him talk about the book with Ben Askew.
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!
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.
Rebuild Say: “We are passionate about seeing young adults fall in love with Jesus and see them running after him passionately and radically in every area of life. We would love to see young adults across Europe stepping out into their identity as chosen sons & daughters of Daddy God. Sons & daughters who change the world.
During the weekend we will have extended times of worship led by Anchor Music and inspirational teaching from Rachel Gardner (Romance Academy) and Anthony Delaney (Ivy Church, Manchester).
Whilst also having space to encounter Gods passionate love, we want to equip and release young adults into the area they are called to bring the Kingdom of Heaven. There will be workshops & seminars based around the 7 Spheres of Influence [family/church/government/business/education/media & arts/health] held by professionals in each industry spending time sharing their experience and their lives with you. There will be opportunities to dream and plan about how we can partner with God to release His Kingdom into these spheres.”
Do encourage any young adults in your church to come along. More information and booking details here.
