Walking in his steps

11–15 November 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Imagine walking in the footsteps of Jesus’ disciples, with a mission to make disciples, just as He did. This is the call of Jesus, but many of us haven’t had the experience of either being discipled or discipling others in this way. Join us for a week-long journey with the dedicated team from LICC. Rediscover what it means to be a whole-life disciple of Jesus and how this can transform us and the world around us. It’s a week that will inspire and equip you to live life with Jesus in every aspect, every day. This week is suitable for everyone, especially those in any position of leadership in the church.

Who's speaking?

LICC - London Institute for Contemporary Christianity

Through resources, speaking, and training, the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) is working to catalyse a movement that envisions and empowers Christians to live as disciples of Jesus in their everyday lives and work, Monday to Saturday, through Sunday.

Paul Woolley

Paul Woolley is CEO at LICC. He was previous Deputy Chief Executive at Bible Society, and, before that, was the founder and director of the think tank Theos. In addition to his background in theology, he has worked in parliament and in public affairs. Paul’s on a mission to embed the whole-life discipleship ‘gene’ into the culture of the UK church within a generation. He regularly appears as a commentator in the media, has a monthly column in Christianity magazine, and is co-host of The Whole Life Podcast. Paul is married to Ruth, and they and their four children live in Wiltshire where they enjoy getting into the great outdoors.

Steve Rouse

Steve Rouse is Church Team Director with LICC and a teaching Pastor with Balham Baptist Church in South London, with a career in the building trade before that. He speaks, consults and writes on behalf of LICC, and oversees strategic projects to fuel whole-life disciplemaking across the UK. His work is shaped by a desire to envision and equip the bricklayer he was 30 years ago – believing that if he’d known then what he knows now about being a disciple, it would have transformed how he joined in God’s work on-site. He’s married to Leisa and they have two young adult children.
