More Information

We’re passionate about helping people and church communities discover how we can all play a unique part in bringing the Kingdom message to the world around us. Our Academy team includes a number of people who are gifted in the area of prophetic ministry, whose conviction is that God wants to speak to all of us.

We firmly believe that everyone can hear from God and this Academy will be helpful for anybody who is hungry to deepen their relationship with God and discover how He communicates His heart and purposes to us in so many different ways.

The various sessions will include interactive teaching, small groups and workshops which will give you the opportunity to grow and practice what you have been learning in a safe environment. You'll be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and try new things.

Throughout the year we will be inviting a number of guest speakers, who are gifted in the area of Prophetic Ministry, Evangelism & theological teaching.

Our aim is to release you with a fresh impartation to go and bring heaven to earth in the places God has already given you influence - at home, at work, at school at the gym or with other parents at the school gate! We want to help you grow in your gifting!

The Annual Fees include all teaching sessions as well as your ticket for Pursuing His Presence : The Conference 2019. Early Bird Fee: £85 (until 30th June 2018) | Academy Fee: £95

The Academy is hosted by Graham Pyman and the team from Jubilee Church Derby on behalf of ChristCentral, with a heart to serve the wider church community. The Academy is open to all and we expect to gather people from across churches in the Midlands and the North of England, although we would welcome those from further afield! We would also love to extend an invite to anyone from across our wider Newfrontiers family, as well as other church streams and networks.
