What bright hope we have!
The brightness of the living God shimmers when we experience the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It is a privilege that we witness regularly: life-changing transformation reflected in the countenance of individuals, congregations, pastors and church leaders who radiate with hope and encouragement as they encounter God. Your support enables nothing short of the in-breaking of God’s Kingdom as people are equipped to discern, tap into and receive the empowering presence and work of the Spirit - bringing hope, comfort, strength, perspective, direction and empowerment to individuals and whole communities of faith.
