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!
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.
John Lalgee is originally from the northwest of England. In 1984 at the age of 19, he submitted his life to Jesus Christ, and over the following nine years served in many areas of leadership in churches in the UK. In 1993, John moved to Kenosha, WI, USA to marry Kim Pingitore, and in 1994 was set-in as an elder of Living Light Christian Church by Bryn Jones.
November 2003 marked the transition for John to begin fully outworking his apostolic gift by planting a church in Taunton, England, and soon after, taking on the apostolic oversight of Covenant Life Church in Cadillac, MI. In 2007, John returned to the U.S. and planted Living Light Christian Church, Racine, WI. In 2008, he was involved with the planting of Living Light Christian Church, Pleasant Prairie, WI. In 2012, the Lalgee family returned to the U.K. to plant Living Light Christian Church, Wellington. John is currently back in Kenosha, WI where he serves the family of churches in One Church Ministries, strategically spending his time with each congregation. John and Kim have four children: Claudia, Carmen, Jevan and Vivienne.
Scott Goodwill was born and raised in Cadillac, MI, where he started following the Lord at a young age. At 18, Scott immediately began pursuing biblical training as well as serving in local church leadership. He received training from Rhema Bible Training Center, Covenant College, and Kuyper College.
Scott worked in leadership at Covenant Community Church in Memphis, TN, founded and served as an elder at Covenant Life Church in Cadillac, MI, and served as a teacher in Ministries Without Borders. Currently, Scott resides in Kenosha, WI, and works with John Lalgee as part of One Church Ministries, serving the churches as a teacher and as the Director of the School of Leadership.
