Ultimately we want the music we write to draw people to God. That by the power and presence of His Spirit people would have revelation of all that Jesus has done for us. That we can be restored to the Father. Worship is His gift to us. We’re made to worship our creator and He is worthy no matter what, but we find that as we give, we also receive.

Revive church has grown from 1 location to 5 since 2005 and they have a vision to bring life to 20 locations by 2020. The church is fast becoming a resource centre for leaders, for training, for missions, for church planting and inspiring revival.
The revelation of justification can be a moment of profound realisation when we finally grasp it. The mist of religious striving lifts as we realise for the first time how utterly precious we are; totally forgiven of all sins. The blazing sun of mercy shines into our dulled hearts and we come alive. Alive to God’s glory, as we realise we are fit for it by a work of grace! Alive to God’s power as we sense the dignity of heaven filling us with the authority of Jesus. Awake to the face of Jesus as, for the first time, we realise He is so close, so accepting, so approving of us, even though we still carry areas of brokenness that are under construction.

"Our desire and vision is to see grace filled, Christ centred, vibrantly worshipping churches, planted and established throughout North, Central, and South America. Along with that, our vision is to see nationals equipped and trained to plant new churches, and provide strength and leadership to existing churches." Currently there are 20+ churches in Mexico, varying in size and expression, in several of Mexico's big cities, as well as several churches in the indigenous areas of the Pame, and Otomi communities. There is also a church in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, as well as emerging works in Lima, Peru.
Believing and convinced of one of the prophetic words given to the Newfrontiers' Family of Churches, "we can do more together than apart," we are collaborating closely with ChristCentral, the apostolic sphere led by Jeremy Simpkins.
Our desire and vision is to see grace filled, Christ centred, vibrantly worshipping churches, planted and established throughout North, Central, and South America.

David is based in Bedford, UK and is an elder at Woodside Church. He is married to Scilla; they have four children and currently 6 grandchildren.
For most of the recent past, David has been working primarily in the Russian-speaking world and overseeing the planting of churches in the part of the world known as the 10/40 window. More recently he took on the leadership of Catalyst and served within the UK and also amongst the many churches that the Catalyst team serve in other nations. Currently that team is serving churches in around 50 nations. In June 2017 David passed on the leadership of Catalyst to Simon Holley, whilst remaining part of the Catalyst leadership team.
David now gives his main attention to leading the Newfrontiers Together team which leads and facilitates what Newfrontiers continues to do together through collaboration and interdependence between apostolic leaders.
Part of David’s role in international ministry has caused him to study how we send people into different cultures and contexts and as a result he has developed teaching on a range of cultural and contextualisation issues which he presents training on frequently and he is also seeking to coach and develop many other embryonic apostolic ministries around the world. David also represents Newfrontiers to other apostolic networks and movements with whom we have good and fruitful relationships.
Before working in Christian ministry, David worked as a civil servant for the British Government in international trade negotiations and one of the highlights of this job included being part of the first United Nations working party on the debt problems of developing countries. Following that he started working in international banking where again he was providing project finance into parts of Africa and Eastern Europe and all of this contributed to his heart for the nations that he still has to this day.
The Kingdom isn't a programme promoted by celebrities, it's ordinary people sowing seeds.
Jeremy and Ann Simpkins
Jeremy & Ann have been involved in leading Newfrontiers churches for over 25 years, including Hastings (one of the first churches to relate to Terry Virgo) and Eastbourne (one of the first strategic Newfrontiers church plants). In 2009 Jeremy & Ann moved from the church they had planted in Teeside (Jubilee Church) to lead Christ Central Manchester. In 2014 the team in Manchester appointed a local pastor to lead Christ Central Manchester releasing Jeremy to lead the ChristCentral team and travel amongst the churches which the team serves. After 7 years in Manchester, Jeremy & Ann are following a call to be part of City Church Sheffield in 2017.
Jeremy and Ann spend most of their time serving churches in the UK, Canada and other nations. When they're not traveling, they love to walk in the surrounding countryside - usually ending with a visit to a local pub!
We need to prepare for ourselves for revival...we must do what only we can do, so that God does what only he can do! We need to call on God for revival, for the revival of God to come.
Joe grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada. He studied at the University of New Brunswick, in Fredericton, where he now lives with his wife Angela and their four children, Micah, Noah, Jared and Anna.

He is passionate about seeing men and women serve well in their families, vocations, schools and in church life.
God wants to establish in us personally, in us corporately together, as we go to the nations, as we do all these great things. We’ve got to know this: what’s my identity, who are we together, what’s my purpose in life, how am I going to do it? The presence of Almighty God is going to empower you and me and us together. What are we going to have to do? We’re going to have to wrestle in prayer, wrestle in proclaiming the gospel, wrestle in persevering as Jesus did.

Andy is lead pastor of Lifespring Church Horsham (formerly Kings) and leads several teams in the church as part of this role. Andy previously worked for 20 years in the IT industry as a programmer and latterly as the sales and marketing director for a large international software company before joining the staff at King's in 2006. Andy & Hazel also serve CCB, a Newfrontiers church in Brasov, Romania, as well as other churches in the UK and further afield.

Hazel is a pharmacist and works for a company providing pharmaceutical services into hospitals specialising in mental health and eating disorders. She loves to speak passionately about how encounters with God must make a difference in our everyday lives, our work and our interactions with those who don’t yet know Jesus!
Let's not live on one encounter, that's seen as a milestone, always remembered but seldom repeated. These encounters were never meant to be simply milestones, but gateways into regular and frequent relationship encounters with God.
