GLOBAL SUMMIT 2020

We live at one of the pivotal moments of history. God is moving in the world on an unprecedented scale. There is an awakening! Do you want to be part of this awakening and help shape history? Here’s one way to catch the heartbeat of what God is doing in the nations.

I’d like to personally invite to an event that only happens every 2 years – the global gathering of World Outreach. These are always very special and significant occasions.

Running from 27th – 31st July, 2020, it’ll be held at the Horizon Village and Resort, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

We will have amazing speakers, and you’ll hear inspiring stories from the field. There will be workshops for missionaries, business people, pastors, and intercessors. You’ll also have some time to chill with amazing people and delicious food!

Our theme is AWAKENING! Why? Because an awakening has dawned. It is an awakening among the people groups, nations, churches, intercessors, business community, and in our hearts and lives.

We’re inviting you to be part of it. Come…you’ll never be the same again!

 

Bruce Hills

International Director

“On the whole, this is the best summit, conference that I have ever attended in all my years of ministry. I felt the touch of God, the holistic approach, God fearing leaders, maturity, wholesome approach towards missions and Christianity, anointed speakers, oh yes good food and down to earth people! I felt so at home as a first time guest!”

“Thanks so very much for this amazing, awesome summit. I have again had an absolutely amazing time of input and have come away feeling empowered in a way I have not previously experienced. I cannot put into words the level of impact I feel that this has had on me (& my husband) and is already starting to be outworked. May the Lord multiply his blessings on all those involved in organising it. AWESOME!!!”

“The summit was excellent and succeeded in all three aims: Connecting with God, connecting with people and giving a sense of direction to the World Outreach movement!”

Speakers

Pastor Rick Shelton

St Louis, Missouri (USA)

Rick Shelton has passionately carried his message around the globe for the past 42 years. He planted LifechurchSTL in 1980 and saw it grow from nineteen people to reach tens of thousands. He, with his wife, Donna, pastored for 36 years, but now spends his time developing and empowering Christian leaders throughout the world. Rick and Donna live in St Louis, Missouri (USA), and have four sons and six grandchildren.

Bruce Hills

International Director, World Outreach

Bruce has been in full-time Christian ministry since 1984. One senior Asian leader described Bruce as having the ‘precision of a teacher, but the fire of a prophet’. After many years in a range of pastoral roles, including leading one of Australia’s largest churches, Bruce joined WO in July 2010. In January, 2017, he became International Director. He is married to Fiona and has three adult children and one granddaughter.

Pastor/Prophet Alex Larsen

New Zealand

Alex has over 40 years of pastoral experience. After 32 years as senior leader, Alex stepped down from pastoring a thriving church in Manurewa, New Zealand, to focus full-time on his prophetic ministry to the wider body of Christ. With a pastor’s heart and prophetic accuracy, Alex is a recognized prophet within his nation. He now ministers regularly throughout the Asia/Pacific region. Alex’s beloved wife, Elaine, passed away in 2019. They were married for 53 years and have three adult children and three grandchildren. Alex has been used by the Lord to speak prophetically to the people of WO on several occasions with accuracy and impact.

Elective Streams

There’ll be FOUR elective streams running for each of the full three days of the summit.

WO Missionaries

This stream is for all WO field personnel. In each of the three sessions, topics relevant to life and ministry on the field will be addressed, along with some exciting new initiatives.

Business and Mission

This stream is designed for people in the business community. Speakers with a solid and successful background in business will speak about their journey of finding the link between business and God’s mission.

Pastors

This stream is for pastors and local church leaders. Speakers will address the topic of how to make a church more missional, specifically how to align the local church with God’s mission. In addition, prophetic ministry, Alex Larsen (NZ), will spend a session ministering prophetically to the pastors and leaders.

Intercessors

This stream is designed for people who feel a call to intercede for missionaries and the mission field. Topics will include a number of practical principles for effective prayer, but will also include times of focused intercession.
