HOPE Revolution News Sept 2016
………………………………………………………………………………………………
Phil TimpsonWhen driving on the motorway with my 10-year-old daughter to a youth festival this summer, I was horrified to see a large, thick, plank of wood flip into the air off the back of the van right in-front of me. It was as if in slow motion, with no chance to swerve, but fortunately the plank narrowly missed coming through my car windscreen at approx. 70 mph. I looked at my daughter horrified to realise that in an instant our lives could have been over. It was a clear reminder of the fragility of life and the urgency we have to bring the good news of Jesus to an emerging generation of young people. Life can be here one minute, and gone the next. Praise God we saw around 50 young people give their lives to Jesus that night. There is no time like the present. This is our watch. My prayer is that together we will act now, making the most of every opportunity.

HOPE Revolution Peterborough
Pboro-leader-gathering
55 leaders came from across the Peterborough area to launch HOPE Revolution Peterborough. The vision: to see 2000 young people find faith in Jesus over the next 3 years. The goal: a focused and united effort to increase intentional evangelism and discipleship to young people across the Peterborough region. 

PboroAt the launch, HOPE Revolution Peterborough commissioned a team of 16 youth leaders, church leaders, and parachurch organisations.  They were commissioned as the steering group, each one taking a lead in a specific element of the vision. Team members communicated their passion and calling. Together they represented a strong and powerful picture of unity. The vision is to see regular citywide reaping moments, a schools based Mission Academy, a Leadership Academy, a summer mission, and an annual awards event as well as developing bespoke discipleship resources, training and events.  The first reaping moment, in partnership with World Vision, will be ‘Carve a Heart’ Youth event, which hopes to reach more than 600 young people with the gospel. For more information and to book your place go to worldvision.org.uk/carveaheart
