To give you a flavour of the kinds of topics we cover, here are our speakers from 2018 - we’ll update you with 2019 seminars and topics as we get nearer the event. Many of the people we have speak 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 loved hearing from them.
