ES Connect 2021
After our wonderfully successfully gathering in Cape Town last month, the ES Network team was excited to meet with another extraordinary group of evangelists in Johannesburg this past Saturday. Those who came together hailed from a variety of evangelistic callings. We had crusade evangelists and prison preachers in our midst. We had those who focus on one-on-one evangelism, those who devote themselves to soul-winning training and those who minister in the hospitals, praying for the sick and sharing Jesus with patients and families. What a joy it was to spend the day together!
We kicked-off the gathering with a heartfelt time of praise and worship, led by the wonderfully anointed Jo-Anne Hoult, before I shared a message that the Lord had laid on my heart for the evangelists. We then introduced everyone to the global evangelist networks of GCEN and GEA (and the benefits they offer to members) as well as the upcoming Bootcamp—a wonderful training program created by Christ for all Nations, soon to be launched in South Africa. Before and after lunch, question and answer sessions were held that resulted in numerous topics being covered, from partner relations and fundraising to crusade planning and the evangelistic calling. We also had the privilege to have a power-packed video chat with Jako and Karin Hugo, who are currently in the USA, regarding school evangelism. During the day, four dynamic evangelists (Edward Ackerman, Herman Snell, Itumeleng Mokganya and Nastassja Kotze) shared about their most recent and upcoming ministry activities, which encouraged and challenged us all. What mighty evangelists we have in South Africa! We are a blessed nation indeed! We concluded the event with a Spirit-saturated time of prayer that resulted in everyone in attendance being wondrously impacted by the might and magnificence of our Lord.
