Through Faith Missions

Sandra Millar spoke of her passion for communicating with people through "life events" - "Jesus is present at all of them". 

Richard Scott shared his vision to see Christians across our land trained to share their faith.

Plus there was the usual mixture of fun and fellowship, worship and prayer, ministry and sharing, and Communion at the end of Conference was just so very special. It was led by John Holbrook and closing word from Richard Zair, and of course, our fantastic Worship Team lead by Dave and Mick!

What a conference is was!

Bible Readings were delivered by Emma Whittick who then was youngest member of fpe. Emma shared many and helpful insights into "In conversation with Jesus: Nicodemus", and her second Bible Reading, "In conversation with Jesus: on the Road to Emmaus". 

Our keynote speaker was Mark Russell. Mark left us with much to think about following both his talks - "Living evangelistically today" and "Equipped for effective evangelism". Past members returned for the first time in more than a decade and there were first timers too plus lots of laughter, tears, deep sharing and learning.
