How to be an everyday evangelist in exile

8–12 July 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Chris Duffett and The Light College Collective will be leading a week on creative and Holy Spirit empowered ways to make an impact in and on your community. The vision of The Light College is to train, equip and connect pioneers and evangelists to go and make countless followers of Jesus. So, come to be inspired through hands-on workshops, practical sessions and a wealth of ideas and tools that will equip you to share the good news of Jesus in contemporary ways that connect with our modern culture.
