Freshly Envisioned      Newly Equipped


Our annual One Church Ministries Conference USA is an important time for Living Light Christian Churches. It’s not just a wonderful time to celebrate the amazing covenant life we have in Christ, but it is also when we are instructed and commissioned for the next leg of our journey together as a family of churches.

As always, we come first to worship our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our hearts, to proclaim His goodness, and experience His wonderful presence. Year after year, we have been privileged to have God speak to us, direct us, and inspire us in both the prophetic and preached word. We are excited to announce that Terry Virgo, founder of Newfrontiers, will be joining us as our keynote speaker this year!




“THE LORD WILL STRETCH FORTH YOUR STRONG SCEPTER FROM ZION, SAYING, ‘RULE IN THE MIDST OF YOUR ENEMIES.’ YOUR PEOPLE WILL VOLUNTEER FREELY IN THE DAY OF YOUR POWER; IN HOLY ARRAY, FROM THE WOMB OF THE DAWN, YOUR YOUTH ARE TO YOU AS THE DEW.”

PSALM 110:2-3 | NASB

Terry Virgo

Newfrontiers

As well as being a dear friend to our family of churches, Terry Virgo is the founder of Newfrontiers, a worldwide family of churches together on a mission to establish the Kingdom of God by restoring the Church, making disciples, training leaders, and planting churches. Newfrontiers serves 1,500+ churches across 70 countries.

A well-known Bible teacher, Terry speaks at conferences internationally and hosted the Stoneleigh Bible Week and annual Together on a Mission Conference in the UK, which drew thousands of delegates from around the world. At the final Together on a Mission Conference in 2011, Newfrontiers was redefined as a network of apostolic spheres worldwide and Terry passed the leadership on to fifteen apostolic leaders.

Terry has written several books, including The Spirit Filled Church, God’s Lavish Grace, God Knows You’re Human, The Tide is Turning, and No Well-Worn Paths, which is his biography.
