Olaf Fogwill

 Olaf Fogwill

With extensive experience of Christian leadership at senior levels in para-church and local church, Olaf's vision is to see a nation of ‘churches, leaders and Christians connected to the Person, Power and Mission of Christ'. God impressed the message of ‘connection' on him in 2008 from John 15:17, since when the resources of C4L have been developed for use in the wider church. The resources help churches reach out to unconnected and disconnected people.
‘I believe that God has given this message for our generation in a simple and fresh way - connection with Him brings life. This life to the full brings with it a clear sense of identity, value and purpose from which people derive much needed security, happiness and motivation. The resources of C4L are easily used and understood and can mobilise your church to impact your community for Christ.'

Bringing the World to Your Church

When George Verwer gives a strong endorsement to a book, you know it has to be taken seriously. This book on world mission from Joy Piper deserves to be read for it is full of inspiration and practical nuggets that can help every church put mission on the agenda. Her premise is that to ‘be a Christian is to be a missionary' - one we might all accept but find hard to implement. However, there is something for everyone in this book: how to run inspiring prayer meetings, understand where your own church is on mission, encourage missionaries, reinvigorate funding, put on displays and catch the imagination of young people. With a logical progression and amusing cartoons, this is well researched and has a very useful directory of further resources and agencies.
Joy encourages us that we can all bear a harvest as we ‘dream dreams and attempt great things for God right here at home'.
