ReFRESH 2020 Highlights
ReFRESH 2020 was super awesome. There were 220 delegates from Southern Africa. We had 13 speakers with over 100 years ministry experience among them.
An interesting statistic was “ about 45% of the delegates had never attended any workshop or conference for Children and Youth ministry before! It was an exciting experience!
We had children from New Covenant Church, Bryanston lead us in an astounding and energetic praise and worship session with a super cool flash mob! This was followed by a beautiful opening charge led by Revd Colette & Wayne Saldanha on “Growth in Christ”. Then Dr John Mphaphuli gave an astounding keynote note address on: “Challenges of multi-culturism in children and youth ministry in South Africa”. Our break away sessions were facilitated by Liana Da Fonseca, Piet Trichardt, Adrian Trapani, Mwewa Kanyanga, Darren Mortimer, Nicole Young, Hayley Walker, Mo Tshuli and Bolanle Enang. After lunch, we had a super time at the Box-It-Time where questions and answers were taken. Yvonne May led us in a powerful praise and worship session accompanied by Dayo Eseyin. The conference ended with a closing charge by Bolanle Enang which is titled “Scars in Service”. The conference ended in ministrations and prayers for each other.
Everyone left with a deep sense of God’s presence and refreshing by the Holy Spirit.
See you next year!
