Conversations on Revival. 29 Sept. Soweto
It is very likely that in the heart of most pastors is a prayer that God would rend the heavens, and by the power of His Spirit, change the game forever in the way the Church impacts the world. This is because, truth be told, Christian influence in our communities is not what it could be. Way too many are still bound in the unforgiving grip of poverty and unemployment.Sickness and disease is the lot of far too many. The character of our towns, townships and cities still reflects the ugly face of satan. Racism, xenophobia, the abuse of women and children are among the moral markers of our society. The litany is long, and it is clear that our strength is woefully inadequate.

Hosted by Soweto Ministers Fraternal and the Evangelical Allliance of South Africa, he will visit Soweto for the first time to meet and share with pastors and Christian leaders from different spheres of influence.
