This week was conference week in Tokyo.
1200+ people gathered to worship, celebrate and learn more about Jesus and his plan to change our cities with his love.
Something powerful happens when the church gets together! God is there and he is ready to do something!
Thomas Hanson from Hillsong church Copenhagen. One of our favorite preachers who made us laugh, made us think and stirred us to have faith! We are so thankful to Thomas for being in Japan. Come again!
Ps Gilbert from Victory church in Manila!
He is humble and shares in a way that makes you get it! He has an incredible fathers heart and shared on have no fears. Thank you Ps Gilbert for sharing your message and your life with us in Japan!
And our very own senior pastors Rod and Viv Plummer shared amazingly ( as usual!!) about vision and the Holy Spirit.
One of my favorite things is the “happenings” before the service starts. Some highlights include the jump, random boy bands and pastors dance off. It gets more and more wild each year.
But more than all of that the theme of this conference was “joy in his presence” That is the theme of our church this year as well. We felt God moving in a new way that stirred our hearts to love God and people more and to dream bigger in our cities.
No matter how much we love our cities, our church, our friends and family- Jesus loves them more! And he wants to use us to introduce that love.
I pray that every person at conference came away with a new sense of Gods in their lives and is empowered to see beyond the normal and believe for the extra ordinary!
From Osaka we want to say a huge thank you to all our Tokyo friends who hosted us beautifully as always. The servant heart is so inspiring!
Tomorrow we have church! It’s gold Sunday.
We will have energy drinks and hotdogs. Perfect way to celebrate and stay awake! Get ready for day 4 of conference tomorrow!!
