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, and Juliet surrendered her life to Jesus in Steve's church inSouthend in the 90s.

At their core Steve and Juliet are missionaries and churchplanters, 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.

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.”

Inline 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.

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.

More speakers to be announced soon…

For Church Leaders and their Teams

Thursday 16th May

A space for church leaders and their teams to step into God’s presence and experience His power. As leaders and aspiring leaders, we need time to connect with others and receive encouragement, equipping and inspiration for all that God wants to do in and through us.

When we draw near, open our hearts and make space for Him, the Lord will speak into and touch our lives. We will be strengthened and made ready for all that God is doing and has planned for us. Are you a leader in your church or community?

Join us for our Leaders Day on Thursday 16th May.

Tickets for the Leaders Day include lunch on the day as well as admission to both Leaders Day and Presence& Promise weekend. We can’t wait to connect.

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.
