Stuart Watt and his family planted Mintlaw Community church five years ago in rural, sparsely populated North East Scotland with just five members of his family. This year they baptized 30 people, they’ve got an extensions service running in another village and have plans for a new campus.
Bryan and Misty Elliott felt called by God to plant churches in the UK, and moved from Kansas to Cardiff in 2012 to start Capital City Church in their living room, with just one other family. Now there’s a leadership team in place, ministries, mission and events happening and they’re repurposing a neighbouring church.
Pastor Mark Batterson from National Community Church in Washington D.C. where they have eight campuses in theatres across the city spoke exceptionally at our conference. He highlighted the need for creativity in our leadership and our churches, and highlighted the power of a single prayer. We caught up with him at conference to find out some more about his life and ministry.
On Tuesday we gather together from all over Great Britain and beyond for our annual national leadership conference! We know there is strength and power in us gathering, we know God has great plans for us and we are excited for our taking our next steps as a movement together.
