So its the season for Road tripping!!
So next weekend we are heading to Dunedin to meet up with the
Southlife Crew and Andy Gourley, founder of Red Frogs. If you are looking at coming on our Schoolies mission in November then you seriously need to consider trying to make it this weekend!

Details are a bit sketchy at the moment but we will let you guys know what we do and update you as we find out more:)
Heres what we know though:

We are leaving ICC either Friday night after Vibe or early Saturday morning (depending on what time everything starts on Sat morning.)

The awesome Stacey Shaw is going to source some cool as billets for us to stay with so we have some sweet accommodation. It might only be a couch so bring you sleeping bag!

Andy is speaking on the Saturday at Southlife and then we are going to help out the Red Frogs Crew at some OUSA events on Sat night. We are going to stay Sat night and go to Southlife for the AM service as Andy is preaching. We will be back in Invers in time for our 6pm service with Nick and Karen Klinkenberg - you don't want to miss this!!


Travel is $15. You will need to bring some money to cover meals for the weekend. As for the sessions with Andy we are unsure but will let you know as soon as we do:)

Any more info just get in touch with Shan:)

As with Revo Tour Roadie we need definite replies as to whether going or not in order to secure beds and seats in the van. A maybe on facebook will be counted as a no!

Fuel Conference

Wow how to describe Fuel Conference? I have once again been wrecked by the amazing love and grace that is to be found in Jesus, and challenged beyond belief about my time here on this earth and what I choose to do with it!

Fuel Conference is our annual youth conference here at the Invercargill Christian Centre and unlike most youth conferences which have a strong leadership focus, ours is purely Holy Spirit. We had the incredible Ps Caleb Murdoch of Elim Christian Centre in Auckland as our guest speaker. Ps Caleb has an amazing passion for things of the Spirit and a desire to see young people impact their world for Christ. He brought a message that showed the supernatural power and importance of Gods Word - a huge challenge for those of us who aren't avid Bible readers!

More than 100 people attended Fuel and it was so amazing to see young teens - some as young as 12 and 13, losing themselves in Gods presence and embracing all that He has for them. Below is a snippet of some photos to give you an idea about the happenings over the weekend. If you couldn't make it this year them make sure you get along to Fuel 2012!!


Cam rapping it up - BOOM! Worship was off the hook!

Worship was so powerful!

Shanan our illustrious MC

Tim from Timaru!! Tim is the youth pastor at the Elim Church there and boosted down to Invers after his own youth on friday night. They saw over 50 young people give their hearts to God, AMAZING!! Hes a young guy but we learned so much from his servant heart in the time he hung out with us.

Ps Caleb Murdoch preaching at Fuel. He carries an amazing message!

Hope you enjoyed these!! See you next year at Fuel!!
