It's not too late!


Last year, I did something very last minute.

I booked on to fusion’s annual student mission and work conference the day before it started and hopped on a train to Derby from Oxford the next day. 

It was incredible. 

I wasn’t a student anymore or really involved with student work but God reminded me that, 

‘Everyone has a part to play.’ 

Currently, over 99% of the university student population (millions!) are not in local church and we want this narrative to change. The prayer is that each and every student sent out of or arriving in our cities each year will find true home in God and in God's family.  

You may be part of a church community that reaches a lot of students or none at all! 

Either way, every member of the church can have a part to play in God’s student mission story and however big or small your part may feel, it is significant. It is important. And it is good. 

What would it look like for every member of the church to be passionate and active in sharing the life transforming love of God to every student? 

What would it look like if the whole church committed to praying ‘thy kingdom come on university campuses as it is in Heaven?’ 

What would it look like if each and every student was invited and welcomed into local church family? 

This call isn't just for a few but it's all hands on deck where anyone and everyone can join in. 

It is 2 days away from this year’s annual conference happening in Oxford and I would love to invite you to do something last minute, significant and spectacular. 

I dare you to book on to the firebrands conference and join hundreds of siblings in Christ from all over the world to catch the fire of God for the next generation.

It is a gathering you don't want to miss and you will leave the conference inspired, equipped, and with a wider sense of church family.
