Where To Now? 5 What is God Saying to the Church?

What is God Saying to the Church? 

The last 6 months or so have seen many major upheavals in the world and the way we do life, this has also affected the church in many dramatic ways. The effect on peoples physical health through the pandemic, the turmoil in mental health also reaching epidemic proportions in many paces as well as major economic disasters affecting individuals, businesses, communities and national economies is unprecedented. All this added to travel, gathering and social restrictions have meant we have never encountered life like this before.  

What is God saying to the church in all of this? 

For the last 4 months we have interviewed a variety of leading Christian ministers from all over the world asking them their thoughts as relevant to their country and community. It certainly has been an interesting ride. In November we will be interviewing a younger generation of leaders to hear what they have to say about where the church is headed and what should we be doing now to prepare for the days ahead. 

This is part of the Combined Christian Churches Victory meetings hosted by Beautiful Feet Task Force since 2010.

Before founding the world renowned contemporary Gospel band 'Love Song' Chuck had been in secular bands 'The Castells" and "The Hondells" and lived a hippie lifestyle. 

After surrendering his life to Jesus, Love Song became a world leading sound of the Jesus Movement coming out of Pastor Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel church in Costa Mesa California. 

Their classic debut album, Love Song (1972), is considered one of the greatest Christian music albums of all time. The group toured heavily in the early 1970s, becoming very popular both in the US and internationally. Chuck began a solo career and has since produced 10 solo albums and toured around the world including many times to Australia.

Pr Binu Thampy 
Equippers Kolkatta, New India Church of God, Cross Culture.
Kolkatta, India

After completing Bible College in Australia in 2001, Binu returned to India and began his life in ministry. He started as, and still functions as, the National Director of the Youth Ministry of New India Church of God (a national church planting movement of approx. 3500 churches)  where he brought significant changes that transformed the face of the whole ministry. 

Obeying the call of God in 2007, Binu and his wife Deena and their baby girl left their home in Kerala and ventured to Kolkata to fulfil the ministry call (an unfamiliar place for them). They started the ministry with nothing and now God has used them in a powerful way to initiate to 120 churches in the North East region of India. 

They founded a ministry called Cross Culture to reach out to the less privileged in their region. Under Cross Culture, there are two homes for orphan children called Kolkata Tree House (KTH), there is a community development program called Freedom Centre, a school on the bus program catering to 150 slum children every day called Vision Rescue and Educare, a community based education and medical program. 

Pastor Binu’s dream is that God will enable them in the next 20 years to establish a ministry base in 150 cities in the northern belt of India and the surrounding nations of the Indian Sub-Continent which could reach 150,000 villages and millions of people. To establish this vision, he has begun a training program for urban church planting called Bridge Institute of Strategic Missions (BISM). 

In 2015 Ps Binu and Deena stepped into the role of Pastors of the city church, Equippers Kolkata with just a handful of people in the church which has now grown to over 200. 

His heart is to see the nation transformed with the powerful gospel of Jesus Christ without denominational barriers, he also travels and ministers across the nation. He lives in Kolkata with his wife Deena and 3 children & 26 full time staff in Kolkata, there are 84 full time workers with Ps Binu in this region.

Daniel Hagen Discography

Daniel is associate director and music director of Awakening Australia 

In 2003, Daniel Hagen radically surrendered his life to Jesus Christ in a powerful encounter that shook-up his world of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. His heart was overrun with the love of God and his songs began to overflow with his affection for the Father. As a rising musician, on the verge of scoring a six figure record deal when he was told: “This industry is full of drug dealers and pimps so you need to stop talking about Jesus and stop singing about Jesus if you want any more funds invested into the band.” 

Too deep in love 
with Jesus to go back, Daniel immediately walked away from the life of fame and fortune and pursued his true passion: the Father. Daniel began leading teams of every day believers out onto the streets, where they would 
preach the gospel and demonstrate God’s love through signs & wonders. 

In late 2007, 
Daniel was released to go plant Churches. Now married to an incredible partner in the gospel, Daniel and Chelsea Hagen spent the following thirteen years planting and overseeing Churches in Queensland and Victoria. Today, Daniel is invited to minister to the wider body of Christ, is the Associate Director of Awakening Australia, and the leader of Awakening Music. He is blown away by how God has used him, and is convinced that God can use anyone who would give God their “yes.” 

Together, Daniel and Chelsea are happily married with four children and are the senior ministers of Fire Church ministries in Seaford, Victoria.
