This Turning Point marks the 20th anniversary of this Conference which commemorates our move from our previous church building in Belmore to our current site here in Campsie. Though we will be here again next year, we are anticipating a newly renovated building. How exciting!
In the last twenty years of Turning Point we have been blessed with anointed and powerful men of God who have greatly impacted POS, such as; Jeff Arnold, Tom Bracken (Taiwan missionary), Jonny James, Doug Klinedinst, Ric Gonzalez, Raymond Woodward and of course Harold Hoffman. This year we are delighted to have Br Mark Morgan returning.
Our Bishop and former Senior Pastor, Bishop Ted Slack chose to call these meetings Turning Point because it signaled a profound event in the history of the Pentecostals of Sydney; the purchase of this new building. Although that was 20 years ago, it is ever more relevant to continue with Turning Point because not only is our site being renovated but I believe we must aim towards a ‘turning point’ in our community and city with the salvation of souls. Our efforts must be focused on building a critical mass if you will, of our efforts in prayer, fasting, soulwinning and discipling. This is the key to seeing our world turn towards Jesus…. when we as a Church and individuals turn our entire lives towards God’s direction.
Three times the Psalmist wrote in chapter 80 “Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” Psalms 80:19
When God causes His face to shine on us, we will receive his salvation and blessings. But we must turn our face towards Him.
Let this our prayer every day!
