Discover the goodness of God at Jesus Culture Encounter, Manchester filmed earlier this year. We have created seven radical episodes from the event that will touch your life for years to come. These air on Sundays on GOD TV throughout December at 7.30pm.
Jesus Culture is a dynamic Christian movement that is impacting lives throughout the world as people experience encounters with God. It started as the youth outreach at Bethel Church Redding and is now a worldwide ministry of worship, events and leadership development. Jesus Culture encompasses the passionate teaching ministry of its leader, Banning Liebscher and the impactful sounds of Contemporary Christian Music chart leaders, the Jesus Culture Band.
The Jesus Culture band is led by Kim Walker-Smith and Chris Quilla with Ian Macintosh on keys, Jeffrey Kunde as lead guitarist, Brandon Aaronson as bassist, Josh Fisher as drummer, and Skyler Smith as acoustic guitarist. Derek Johnson and Lindy Conant also feature during this special Manchester event, along with UK worship leaders, Luke and Anna Hellebronth from Worship Central.
In addition to Banning and Kim speakers include: Lisa Bevere of Messenger International and Ben Fitzgerald of Awakening Europe. British leaders include Alan Scott of Causeway Coast Vineyard and Phil Smith of VineLife Church.
7 life-changing messages
- Carrying God’s Word – Banning Leibscher
When God speaks to us us, how do we carry that word? “Your life should look different after the Word than before the Word. When God speaks to us it is to change us!” How do we pray, prepare and partner with God to see His Word come to pass in our lives?
- Transforming Everyday Culture – Alan Scott
Transforming the culture that you live in everyday. Faith in the workplace, school, home and on the street not just at church on a Sunday. For years the church has lived intimidated by culture but you can’t change culture if you hide from it. “He empowers us to engage culture NOT escape from it.” “I seek God in the supernatural but He meets me in the mundane.”
- How Do We Grow? – Kim Walker Smith
God’s timing is perfect. In this session Kim sets out five ways we can grow and pursue God. How you respond to the season, how you respond to the moment, it matters. Embrace the season you are in.
- Vision Without Rival – Lisa Bevere
“One moment in the presence of God can change everything.” In this message Lisa shares on knowing your time and place in God’s plan and sharing how we can be intentional and connected to His vision before anything else.
- Lioness Arising – Lisa Bevere
Lisa shares some of the revelations from her book, Lioness Arising. “If we’re going to be healthy we need the voice of fathers and mothers in the house of God.” She shares that women are foundational within the God’s Kingdom and the Great Commission is for ALL of us. At the core of everything in our walk with God is this key: where our affirmation and our identity comes from changes everything.
- Faith FULL Obedience – Phil Smith
How do we move from faithful obedience to faith FULL obedience? Phil shares from Luke 5 and unpacks Jesus showcasing that all things are possible, it is up to us how we respond in the moment. We can respond with obedience OR we can respond with faith filled obedience. Always be prepared for God to follow through on His Word, this demonstrates not only that you believe Him but that you are ready for Him to answer.
- Freedom From Fear – Ben Fitzgerald
How can God IN us break the spirit of fear? Ben Fitzgerald shares his powerful testimony including the story of his father’s mental health struggle which resulted in suicide. This has a profound impact on him while growing up and Ben became a drug addiction. But God’s plans and purposes prevailed and now he leads citywide revivals in Europe and just recently in Australia.
