Speaker: Peter Horrobin
Leaders face greater challenges than others in the Body of Christ.
Teaching on this CD will be of interest to all those who are called to be leaders in the Body of Christ.
Peter challenges and encourages leaders to look at the responsibilities involved so that they can be even better leaders.
Drawing on the valuable lessons to be learned from Scripture and the Hebridean revival, Peter shares both the joys and pitfalls of bringing a vision into fulfilment.
(Recorded at ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ Conference Nov 1997.)
The vision for Ellel Ministries was to be a place where people can receive ministry and be trained to help others. However, organisations such as Ellel Ministries can’t possibly meet all the needs. The demand for personal ministry is overwhelming.
Many churches want to help but they don’t know how. Others don’t have enough people in their congregations who are properly equipped. For this reason the conference ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ was held. It was planned to help the Church with the task of equipping its people to fulfil the Great Commission to preach the good news of the Kingdom and heal the sick.
Why is healing so important to the Body of Christ? In reality we all need healing from the consequences of living in a fallen world, but we are not just referring to healing from the obvious symptoms of sickness and disease –important though that is.
Paul prayed that we might be whole in spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23) and the process of walking towards healing brings reality and encourages us to grow in maturity as strong disciples of Jesus.
