A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO IN THE SCHOOL PLAYGROUND – SAMMY OUR 5YR OLD SON ASKED US IF HE COULD PLEASE GO TO THE PRESENTS! CONFERENCE. WHO WOULD MISS A CONFERENCE THAT WAS FULL OF PRESENTS! AT THE TIME I GRACIOUSLY EXPLAINED TO HIM THAT THE CONFERENCE WAS ACTUALLY ALL ABOUT GOD’S PRESENCE HERE WITH US ON EARTH – WHICH OF COURSE IS FAR BETTER THAN ANY PRESENT WE CAN RECEIVE. To my delight he was quite satisfied with the explanation and started planning for Elev8 kids program at Presence with his new school friends. There is nothing like the presence of God – to refresh us, revive us, renew us, refocus us and, once again, position us for His purpose on planet earth today. Without a doubt it is the greatest present any of us could ever receive. Tim and I actually met lining up to get into Presence

conference (then called Ozfire) 11 years ago! At that conference and at every Presence Conference since we have had significant encounters with God – and as it has turned out not only has the conference been a time to encounter His presence – it has been a time where we have received wonderful presents from the God of heaven and earth. Ps 37:4 reads “delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Presence Conference is a time to come away and delight yourself in the Lord. It is a time of rich worship, incredible teaching and powerful ministry. As we take the time to delight in Him, His presents are handed out. Dreams come alive, vision is released, prayers are answered, miracles happen. There is something powerful about gathering as body of believers in the heart of the city to wait on His presence. Many of the great miracles recorded in the bible occurred

when believers were gathered together as one, in large corporate settings. For example the opening of the Red Sea (salvation), the walls coming down at Jericho (breakthrough and victory), Jesus feeding the 5000 (provision), Jesus healing the sick (healing) and the list goes on. 7 years ago at Presence conference Tim and I came before the altar broken after a miscarriage. At that conference, during the miracle offering, God gave Tim a vision of holding a little boy. That little boy was born just a little more than 9mths later, he is our Sammy, a present from Presence! We are forever grateful for the value that Ps Phil and Chris place on the presence of God. Never underestimate the power of His presence to turn everything around. It is the answer for you and the answer for your friends! Register yourself and anyone else you can now! –– Ps Tim and Kirrily Lowe C3 City Executive Pastors
