Graham leads the team at Jubilee Church Derby and is also part of the ChristCentral European Core Team as well as the ChristCentral Partnership. He works with churches primarily in the UK and Cambodia. Graham & Sarah are approved foster carers for the local authority and as well as looking after children, work with them to help encourage foster care recruitment in the city. Graham is also a Director of ChristCentral Churches (the charitable body that provides a legal, financial and governance framework to ChristCentral) and a school Governor. Sarah trained and worked as a Learning Disability nurse and now leads Smile, Jubilee’s respite facility for children with additional needs. On a day-off they enjoy country walks and pub lunches together!

Ginny Burgin

City Church Sheffield

Ginny's Christian journey began when God saved her in 1972. Following a path of calling to the prophetic, which led her through much persecution and pain, she became involved in what later became City Church Sheffield. She's served in all sorts of areas of church life. She currently describes her role in the words of Jeremiah 1:7b "You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you." This outworks in teaching, training, assisting pastorally, making known what she feels God is impressing upon her, and serving other churches as part of the ChristCentral European Apostolic Team.

Dave Price

The Community Church

Dave leads The Community Church (Wooburn Green). He is married to Kazmyra and they have three children. Dave is passionate about God’s Kingdom being demonstrated upon the earth and has a growing prophetic ministry serving other churches. He loves to equip others to hear God’s voice and operate in all the spiritual gifts. Dave often travels alongside Andy Robinson & his team from Kings Church Horhsam and joined us at Devoted 2016 speaking as part of the team at our Life In The Spirit LifeZone.

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!
