1. Kingdom leaders

Embrace Calvary before leading others to Calvary.
Understand that it’s not what you know, Its Who you know. 

Find fulfillment when others reach their full potential.

Dream about God’s Kingdom invading earth, not just their own church.

See all local Christians as being God’s presence in a community.

Love to have people around them who are at any point in their spiritual journey.

Are both comfortable in their anointing and dreaming for more. 

Power is when you catch a wave, authority is when you start a wave.
(Found on web picture) 

Jesus is great to work with. (A local saint)

2. Worship over Wollongong. A comment from Wayne Morris, director.

“On Saturday the 22nd August approximately 600 people almost filled the Wollongong Town Hall to celebrate 200 years of Christian worship in the Illawarra. The praise and worship time was accompanied by a 60 voice choir, expanded from the Wollongong Gospel Choir, the Wollongong Town Hall pipe organ, the Wollongong Salvation Army band, the This Way band, a guest soloist and three grand pianos. Leading the conducting team was Merion Powell who was born and raised in the Illawarra and is now a resident of France.

The 2 hours and 15 minutes disappeared too quickly for all those who were present who sang, listened, prayed and meditated with music ranging from popular hymns to contemporary classics and new songs from the 21st century.  

It was great to see the number of churches represented, both geographically and denominationally, and the unity of the evening as we all joined in praise and worship.”

The movie ‘War Roomis under review for an extended season, See Link for movie and session details. (At time of writing, showings have been extended to Wed 9th!)


It’s about the power of prayer, strategic prayer. The movie is built around the story of an older lady who disciples a young lady in how to pray for her marriage. It is produced in a manner to be able to confidently take our friends to.

Prayer certainly is our most powerful weapon, and we can all learn more about prayer.

Don’t wait for the DVD, let’s go public and get this movie established in the wider community. Be touched at the same time.

5. Humour    

Heard around the  traps:
“I’m a knuckle dragger for Jesus” 

“In Acts we see 3000 people converted after 1 sermon. Today we see 1 person converted after 3000 sermons” (maybe not so funny…)          

Church sign:

 (In direct contradiction to Worship over Wollongong, which was a touch of Heaven!)

Pray with, and for, other Christian leaders in your area.   


How is your fraternal going?
