"Radical for Jesus" was the theme carried throughout the three days. Each morning began with a 5:30am prayer meeting, in that meeting God gave us direction for the day. Pastor Richard William (Singapore), Pastor Leonard Griffin (Phoenix, Arizona USA) and Pastor Jeremiah Owens (Dallas, Texas USA) teamed up for this History Making conference,They challenged us in our faith, and showed us what it means to be radical for Jesus. They each preached with the fire and passion in their hearts that comes straight from the heart of God. This conference was not about numbers, the spiritual atmosphere of the youth in Phoenix was shaken and a deposit was made in the spirit. God is now doing a new thing!
Musicians from all across the city came together to worship God for these three days, their skill was met with fire from Heaven. As we entered into worship God's presence was ushered in and He met with us. Leaders from several different churches came and taught afternoon workshops. Each one had a very specific message from God to share. Pastor Richard gave a call to die, a call to die to our flesh. Young people came forward in total surrender to God, they committed to do whatever it took to follow Him.
In true History Maker fashion, the conference ended with light sticks. The light sticks were placed at the altar, and each person was challenged to come forward in surrender and take their light. God's presence came in, and it was felt by everyone there. Those that been reaching out for their breakthrough received it... Those who had been thirsting for a fresh touch were quenched... Those who had been hungering for fresh food from Heaven were fed... The simple truth was that God showed up, and He made Himself available for anyone who reached out to Him.
God is on the move in , and we're already looking forward to next year's History Maker. But this deposit that has been made is going to bear fruit. Now that we've received such a tremendous outpouring, we can't keep it to ourselves! God has called us; we will go and make history in our nation! Will you answer His call to you for your nation?
