It was great to grab a few minutes with Steve Tibbert, another friend of mine who recently had a book published. You can read more about his book here on the blog.

TOAM – Thank you to the photographers

It was sad not to have my wife with me this year at Brighton. But I was very grateful to two men who tried to fill her shoes, at least in terms of photography during the sessions. I think you will agree that they did well. So, a big thank you to the two professional photographers who took all the pictures you will have seen on here over the past week.

TOAM Prayer Celebration and Giving night

As this is such a historic evening, I decided I would at least attempt to live blog. How you live blog a prayer meeting and worship party is a challenge! I cant really capture the amazing sense of celebration that was there. But it was in this massive sense of jubilation and faith that we united to storm the heavens. Lee Yarborough who leads the team based in Mexico led us in praying for Latin America. We prayed first for church plants in Rio, Brazil and in Bolivia. In Mexico several … [Read more...]

TOAM Terry Virgo's Fireside Chat

Terry explained that he felt God say to him that for this session he should “Just sit down and talk to them.” He explained that he had been looking at the last part of Hebrews, and it was good stuff but it wasn’t coming into a sermon form. He felt God said to him “what would you like to stay at this historic moment?” As Ginny prophesied tonight would be “a coming of age party” for Newfrontiers. So Terry wanted to highlight some things that really matter to him. What has been … [Read more...]
