Praise Chapel Culture Conference 2018
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE
Years ago, Andre Crouch wrote these words in a wonderful song, “How can I say thanks for all the things You have done for me.” Of course he was giving thanks to God. I want to give thanks to everyone who participated in the 2018 Praise Chapel World Conference on “Culture.”
All of our speakers brought informative and challenging messages.
Dr. Michael Brown, referring to the cultural challenges said, “Darkness is not the problem -lack of light is.” Dr. Joshua Lingel, as he taught us about reaching Muslims said, “Islam is not the problem – the complacent church is.” Dr. Christopher Yuan, speaking to us about the sexual revolution said, “Desperation is the breading ground for change.” Pastor John Malcolm, powerfully challenged us to contend for the supernatural revival in our culture. Missionary/Evangelist, Jack Harris imparted vision for making impact in the Middle East. Many other pastors spoke shorter messages giving us powerful words of encouragement and challenge.
The Worship Teams
I was so proud of each worship team from Praise Chapel churches. My special thanks to each and every one who served on these teams. The quality of your music presentation and the worship experience was excellent in every way.
I especially want to thank all of the logistical workers.
You folks are always amazing. You work almost unseen. You are the ones who really made this conference an exciting event for everyone. One pastor told me that everything was smooth and pleasant. That is because of all of you wonderful partners who labored so hard from the very beginning of planning until the last truck was loaded around 1 am closing night.
We all do this for one reason – to bring glory to Jesus Christ.
People came from fourteen nations and at least eighteen states. Only time will tell the full impact of this conference.
Your reward for service and labor in God’s Kingdom can only fully come from God. That is why the Word of God promises: “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith” (Galatians 6:9-10 MSG).
Last but not least, I want to thank everyone who attended this conference.
It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit imparted to you exactly what only He knows was just for you. In all that we do, we totally depend upon the Holy Spirit to anoint our work and labors to accomplish God’s purpose.
