The Global Revival: Empowering Leaders in Every Sphere of Society
We are so excited to launch our FIRST EVER Global RICE Conference! The vision of our first Global RICE Conference is to empower Christians in all spheres of society to be leaders for the Kingdom of God where God has positioned them.
Anyone from any sphere of society whether that be in church, technology, finance, marketing any many more is invited to come and see what the Global Army that God is raising up could look like when we are fully empowered and ready to see His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
For the first time ever RICE conference is happening making next weekend the biggest RICE weekend of the year. Conference is running before, after (and including!) RICE rally Sydney taking your rally experience to another level!
What is conference?
Beginning at the new start time of 9am Friday 23rd August (through till the finale on Monday night) we’ll take you a journey that will equip you no matter what sphere of life you are in for service to Jesus. Informative and practical, you’ll hear life changing talks developing your leadership, expanding the call of God on your life whilst having significant response moments, training in evangelism before hitting the streets of Sydney for Jesus, visit churches to minister to, try a worship session in a public space and experience a significant united moment across many cities and countries in our global finale on the Monday night.
As to the speaker line up, it’s definitely our RICE “avengers moment”, because if you look at all these speakers we have almost EVERY key leader in the movement flying in to pour whatever they have into you as a conference delegate.
They are coming from Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and across from Auckland and some even as far as Brazil, to assemble what will surely be one of the most impactful speaker line-ups in our movements history. Not to mention Pastor Jon Chow, co-founder of the youth movement ‘Asia for Jesus’ joining us from Taiwan as our keynote. Grace Lung, a specialist on the topic of Asians between cultures, Eliane Miles (formerly of Mcrindle research) and Jon Quay (who at one stage led the fastest growing youth group in Western Australia) are amongst the many bite-sized TED-style talks, with some fantastic panels pooling the collective wisdom from experienced pastors, RICE C-suite leaders and RICE city directors. Those from the financial sector speaking into the Christians role in the marketplace, Pastor Pete Ko on a biblical understanding of revival, our thoughts on what God is doing abroad will feature the Brazilians, an exploration and application of the word and spirit brought to you by James and Candy Lee and much much more. And of course a call to evangelism from your hosts, our Directors Steve and Naomi Chong.
With worship from Summer Zhu and Edwin Luo and a rotation of interstate RICE worship teams from different cities and ministry time after each session the aim is not just to move the intellect (which it will) but that you leave refreshed, empowered and activated for serving Jesus. And did we mention… RICE rally is included and you may get to do the life changing role of speaking the first steps into a brand new Christians life or serve to see this significant event come to life!
