Global 2020

13 – 15 October

Between 13-15 October leaders from over 65 nations joined us at our Global 2020 conference as we gathered online for worship, prayer, learning and connection, and as we prepared to do more together in the future.

Global 2020 was a truly international gathering of Newfrontiers apostolic leaders and their teams from around the world.

Over each of the three days we made a daily session available to all, while holding smaller sessions for the apostolic fellowship and their teams.

Each of our public sessions are available below for you to watch, or rewatch.

At each Global conference, we invite a guest speaker to bring a message that will inspire, challenge and equip us. This year, we were excited to welcome Mark Sayers, from Melbourne, Australia. He has a passion for spiritual renewal and the future of the church. In our first session Andrew Wilson and Mbonisi Malaba interviewed Mark, and in our second session we enjoyed his timely message: We may not have a Plan, but we have a Person.

David Devenish and Steve Tibbert

An important transition moment

This year’s conference was significant in part because it marked the leadership transition from David Devenish, who has led the Newfrontiers Together Team for the past nine years, to Steve Tibbert, who will now take on leading this team.

The Newfrontiers Together Team serves the Newfrontiers apostolic leaders as they partner together on global mission through collaboration, interdependence and mutual accountability.

Thank you

Let’s keep praying for ‘more together’ as apostles, spheres and churches continue to serve communities across the nations.

Succession or Multiplication?

David Devenish’s latest book, which was released during Global 2020, tells the story of how Newfrontiers tackled this challenge, and how we have successfully transitioned to next-generation leadership.
