About this Event

This conference is a declaration: We carry God’s presence and display his promise of salvation to the world. His presence is our habitation, his promises our fuel.

"And at midnight a cry was heard, 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet Him!'
Matthew 25:6

Are you ready to meet with Him?

Speakers & Worship

Steve & Juliet Barber

Steve & Juliet Barber are the Senior Pastors of Chroma Church. Steve was saved as a teenager during a mission to his small village in the 80’s, Juliet surrendered her life to Jesus in Steve's church in Southend in the 90s. At their core Steve and Juliet are missionaries and church planters believing their lives and calling to be the change in His pocket… They are passionate about pursuing the Lord’s presence and seeing people come to know Jesus. If the purpose of the church is to love God, the mission of the Church is to unashamedly proclaim the gospel of the risen Jesus Christ to our city & nation. Their prayer is that the Church will be the continuing story of the unfolding Kingdom of God into Acts 29 and beyond and that this conference is a stake in the ground and declaration of the revival He is bringing to our nation.

Chroma Worship

We see worship and salvation as the primary calls of this house! We believe that we were created to worship Jesus. We worship because He is worthy, because we love Him and want to adore Him. As we worship Him, it reveals something of heaven here and now, and that releases a natural adoration and draws us into a deeper encounter with the Holy Spirit. Through these encounters we will be a people deeply marked by Him. Worship will be led by Joel Barber and the Chroma Worship team.

Ben Fitzgerald

Ben Fitzgerald is a passionate lover of Jesus and the senior leader of Awakening Europe, a movement that champions the Gospel across Europe through stadium events, city-wide outreaches, and training schools. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Ben met Jesus in an encounter that deeply changed him in 2002 whilst he was dealing drugs. Since then Ben has lived passionately about one thing – showing the world Jesus in his everyday life and taking the good news of the Kingdom to the nations. In 2009, Ben moved to Redding, California to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). After graduating, he then served on staff as a Pastor at Bethel Church for several years.

He currently lives in Germany leading the Awakening Team and spends much of his time traveling extensively – both in Europe and across the world. Galatians 5:1 says “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” In line with that mission, Ben loves to equip people to live in God’s fullness of freedom and identity.  He has a deep conviction that the future of nations will be transformed by radical believers living free and proclaiming Jesus boldly.

Hayley Braun

Hayley Braun is on the Senior Leadership Team of Bethel Church in Redding California and is an Overseer in BSSM. Born and raised in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Hayley moved to Redding, California, to attend BSSM in 2008, where she met her husband Ryan. Growing up in the church, Hayley discovered her passion early on; the Bride of Christ. She has a deep desire to see the people of God walk in true freedom, living a life liberated by the gospel, in deep intimacy with the Lord, and in connection with one another. Hayley and her family burn for revival and to see the nations encounter God in a real and transformational way. Hayley has spent over 10 years leading in Bethel's Second Year School of Supernatural Ministry, two years pioneering BSSM Online, and now oversees BSSM’s Third Year Programme. Hayley and Ryan have three children - Aiden, Liberty, and Ash. They love to spend quality time at home and with their community.

Paul & Sue Manwaring

Paul & Sue Manwaring are on the Leadership Team of Bethel Church and serve as missionaries to the UK & Europe. They believe it is time to cry out: Why not here, why not now, why not us! To that end, they are particularly partnering with Steve & Juliet Barber in Leicester to build a momentum of gathering leaders and Bethel alumni in the UK, uniting their experience with John Wimber with that of Paul and Sue's Bethel family. Strengthening churches, encouraging alumni, equipping everyone to know that they are sent, whoever they are, wherever they go, whatever they do. As Paul & Sue look forward they are encouraged, they know that God has never let them down before in numerous challenging scenarios and, of course, that He wastes nothing and gets us ready. Paul & Sue believe that they will see Europe in Revival.
