Global 2020

13 – 15 October

Join us this October at our Global 2020 conference as we gather online for worship, prayer, learning and connection, and as we prepare to do more together in the future.

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

We will really miss gathering in person this year, catching up with friends and building new connections. However, we will still gather together online over three days, with a daily session open to anyone around the world, plus smaller sessions for the apostolic fellowship and their teams.

Steve & Deb Tibbert

David Devenish and Steve Tibbert

An important transition moment

This year’s conference is significant because it marks 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.

Open to all – who can you invite?

Open to all – who can you invite?

Meeting online has brought some unexpected opportunities. More of our church leaders and teams will be able to be involved in the conference, and we have decided to open some of the sessions for anyone to join and be involved with us as we look to do more together.

Succession or Multiplication?

Succession or Multiplication?

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