Event description

Description

Purpose:
To share the message of ATG – An awakening to the glory of God and His calling to bring love and comfort, and hope and faith, to the hurting. To communicate and minister the message that God has given to ATG that, ‘whatever you have gone through or you are going through, God wants to love and comfort you and to turn it round to help and rescue others.

Conference scripture:
To proclaim good news to the poor… to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. Isaiah 61:1
“True religion is to take care of the hurting.” Joyce Meyer

Target Audience:

  • People in, or coming out, of darkness and those who want to help them (includes people impacted by depression, suicide and human trafficking).
  • People who want to see more happen in their Christian walk (includes marriages triumphing).
  • People who want to turn the world upside down with the gospel message (especially young people).



Key Message: To Glorify God

By finishing the work He has given us to do – to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Jesus came to bring good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.
  • The early Church turned the world upside down by proclaiming the gospel, including taking care of the poor and caring for the suffering.
  • The world is watching and listens to our message when they see us taking care of the poor and the broken.


By proclaiming the gospel of the Cross – to see the broken, the captives and the prisoners:

  • Redeemed – rescued from their brokenness, captivity (e.g. from the scars of abuse), and the darkness of their prisons (e.g. addicts);
  • Restored – made whole – filled with God’s love, power and light; and
  • Triumphing - God uses people that Satan has tried to destroy, and displays His glory in them by making them powerful in rescuing others e.g. Joseph – Gen 50:20, 2 Cor 1:4-5, 1 Cor 1:26-30 and David’s mighty men who started as drop outs 1 Cor 22:2


Conference Hosts:
Gerard & Jeannie Long - In thirty-seven years of marriage, Gerard and Jeannie have come to know and love God in a profound way. It’s this love that has enabled them to persevere through any parent’s worst nightmare and to now have even more love for Jesus Christ and for each other. They are reaching the hurting all around the world through ATG. Learn more at: https://www.awakeningtogod.org/about/

Guest Speaker:
Benny Prasad – designed the Bentar (world’s first bongo guitar) and holds world record for being the fastest man ever to visit all 195 countries in the world. Learn more at: http://bennyprasad.com/


Other ministries will be invited to help with a seminar/s on the Triumph of Marriage and the launch of two new ATG initiatives:
Prevent Suicide – includes messages to help bring freedom for those in depression.
Restoring Hope to the Captives – casting a vision to help redeem, restore and bring triumph to women/girls (and men/boys) coming out of Human Trafficking.


Context:
Hopelessness is rampant across the US and abroad, reflected in the growth in depression, suicide, addictions, hatred (e.g. on social media) and family breakdown. (The world Health Organization recently announced that depression is now the largest illness across the globe and suicide is the number one killer, especially amongst young people!)

ATG has a message of great hope, for just such a time as this!

Prayer:
This will be a key part of the conference, including a group of prayer warriors who will specifically pray over people for healing and deliverance. Prayer will continue throughout the conference, including group and for individuals.


Hotel information and conference schedule will be updated soon.
