How will the consultation be organized?
The consultation will be divided between plenary sessions and track meetings in the morning and afternoon, and corporate intercession in the evenings. Each delegate will be asked to choose just one of the ten tracks which they will partcipate in throughout the consultation. Tracks will look at five questions related to their area of focus: 1. What is God’s purpose in this area? 2. What is currently happening in Africa? 3. What remains to be done?
4. What are some solutions to fill the gap? 5. How can we work together to implement these solutions? On the final day of the consultation, National Discipleship Research Councils will be formed to continue the ongoing work in each country of examining the extent to which the gospel of the kingdom is transforming every sphere of society, and making recommendations to the church from the findings.
How can I prepare for Ghana 2013?
Each delegate is encouraged to pray about which track they feel led to contribute to. As part of the registration process, you will be encouraged to connect with the track leadership team and participate in pre-conference activities leading up to the gathering in September.
How can I pray?
Pray for the Spirit’s anointing on every speaker, track leader and delegate. Ask God to prepare our hearts to receive his message and declare it faithfully to the church. Intercede for protection, provision for each delegate, and a spirit of unity throughout the consultation.
