We’ve got some great speakers coming to teach in our main meetings and workshops and we’ll be adding more names in the coming months. Many of the people we’ve invited are those Mike and the team have journeyed with over a number of years and have taught us so much about stepping out in the power of the Holy Spirit. They are people who are living naturally supernatural lives and seeing God do amazing things. They are also gifted and inspiring communicators with a passion to equip others and we can’t wait for you to hear from them.
