2017 was a watershed year for us in Asia where we witnessed the Holy Spirit moving mightily across the nations. At the heart of the G12 Vision lies the key tenet of understanding God’s heart, and entering into a new level of conquest in every area of our lives. To give another booster in equipping Faith Community Baptist Church (FCBC) to fulfil His purpose, we launched LifeClass – introducing the new consolidation package to establish the foundations of new believers.
About 5,600 including the teenagers, went through this launch. This was followed by a re-encounter with our 1728 leaders to not only familiarise themselves with the new equipping syllabus, but also to re-connect with our Heavenly Father and have an intimate experience with Him.
The blood of Jesus makes all of us conquerors to reach the multitudes. FCBC launched FCBC Yokohama in April even as FCBC Sendai celebrated its third year in Japan, breaking a hard ground for mission. Our G12 Asia Conference 2017 is testament to this where we had a record attendance of 9,038, with 7,305 local delegates and 1,733 overseas delegates. A total of 215 churches from 18 countries made their way to Singapore in August to proclaim ‘We Are The Light’.
We also witnessed the G12 Vision gaining strong interest from the countries of China, Vietnam, Myanmar and Nepal, while Korea and Thailand continued to mentor over 300 churches interested in the Vision. Almost 9,000 attended the Korea G12 Conference in 2017 which was more than double that from the year before. In Thailand, pastors and delegates from about 100 churches attended the annual G12 conference and were challenged to 90 days of Conquest in the coming new year.
Mongolia is also planning to rent the biggest theatre venue in Ulaanbaatar in anticipation of a bigger conference in 2018. Over in the Philippines, the annual national conference in Metro Manila drew more than 20,000 delegates who packed the World Trade Center. Another highlight of the year was the Miracle Catch organized by G12 Philippines in Rizal Park where Pastors Cesar and Sarah ministered to over 165,000 people. It was a powerful encounter for many where some 80,000 received Christ and many were set free by the power of the blood of Jesus. Praise the Lord!
