Presence & People Conference
Presence and People is a 5-fold ministry conference launching at Sonrise this October 2019. Our vision for Presence and People is to see churches, ministries, and believers be about both the presence of God and about reaching people in practical ways. We are coming together for this time to receive training, expand our vision and receive impartation. The Presence is all about prayer, awakening, and revival. It’s about giving God space in our lives, homes, and churches to do the supernatural work that can only be done as we wait on Him in prayer and worship. The People is all about how we impact our cities and the people in them in practical and tangible ways through serving and disciple-making. We are bringing in apostolic and prophetic leaders to speak and minister in our sessions that will build you up and inspire your faith. This year’s conference will also have a special emphasis for intercessors to receive a spirit of prayer and travail that will make a difference in our neighborhoods and nation. If you are a church place or workplace leader that would like to connect with other like-minded leaders please inquire about our apostolic network meetings that will run in tandem with this conference.
