Our mission is not only to run well and there it ends; but to pass on the baton to the next generation. A dynamic occurs when women who are younger, with energy and strength, unite with those older, with experience and wisdom. It is then that the results can be far reaching. Julia Derbyshire has served alongside her husband, Steve at City Gates for 23 years where she has established an inspirational women’s ministry that oversees different expressions. Some of her favourite things are Pilates and living in London. There are people in all of our lives whose influence has helped shape who we are today and who we will become in the future. They have passed on a baton with which we run to continue a great legacy. It’s our time to carry the baton and create our own legacy that future generations will embrace. We should count it a privilege and also a responsibility to create a life that others will be inspired by and when they pick up the baton we should aim to become their greatest cheerleader. Lynda Heron is married to Jason (Elim Church Northampton) and serves on the National Core Team for Aspire. A gifted and refreshing communicator, Lynda is passionate to influence and encourage all women to realise their God given potential.

Expect Opportunity Seminar
Elim Leaders Summit 2016 • May 19, 2016 • Darren and Jackie Johnson
What is the link between who God is, who we are and what we do? How do we create an environment where followers of Jesus truly feel like a family who are on mission together? How do we decide where to deploy resources in pioneer ideas? Join Darren and Jacky as they seek to address these questions in order to equip you to expect opportunity in the places that you serve God. Darren and Jacky have been married for 27 years and they have two adult children. They lead King’s Church in Warrington, a church which they along with a small group of others, planted in 2002.
