About this Event

The Chain Breaker Outreach

Never in my 27 years of being a Christian have I seen a greater need in our community and around the world. The obvious dangers of the pandemic plus mental health, unemployment, rise in suicides, alcohol addiction, domestic violence, loss of education, to name a few. Global poverty is catastrophic: lives are lost due to lack of hospital care, farmers who were locked down in countries during spring time now have no crops, and those who do have no markets open to sell. The list goes on.

How to we respond?

In the midst of the chaos there is a demand for truth, justice, meaning, mercy and hope. All of these are found in the good news and power of Jesus Christ. To be honest, I don't know how people are coping today without him. At Crown Jesus we are committed to communicating the Good News of Jesus and every week over the last few months we are seeing and hearing stories of people coming to faith in Jesus and lives being changed. These three nights of outreach are a key opportunity to invite friends and family to hear the message of Jesus and stories of lives that have been forever changed.

John Edwards is a man who knows all about pain, addiction, isolation and being on the brink of death on more than once occasion. For over 20 years he lived on the streets of Dublin and London, homeless and addicted to drugs and alcohol. In his own words, 'My life was a complete mess.’ In 1987, John had a radical encounter with the living God which changed his life. On that day, the Holy Spirit invaded his life and he was forever changed. He was the first Irish man to complete Teen Challenge, a rehabilitation programme, in 1991 and has been clean ever since. God is using John powerfully to lead people into faith in Jesus, set people free from addiction and find healing. His book ‘Walking Free' will be available each night.

My story is that I grew up in East Belfast / Castlereagh attending my local high school, Lisnasharragh. My world was torn apart by the death of my dad at 13 and as a result my teenage years slowly began to move in the wrong direction fuelled by alcohol, drugs and bad choices. At 19 I was unemployed and searching for meaning and although I was happy with my life, I knew I wasn’t complete. There was a God shaped hole in my life that I was trying to fill with all sorts of rubbish and it wasn’t working. On the 5th October 1992 my life was changed after attending an event a little bit like Chain Breaker. That night I stopped trying to control my life and gave it over to Jesus, inviting him to forgive me and give me a fresh start. Life has never been the same. I went on to work as a fitness Instructor, lifeguard and firefighter for 20 years before stepping into full-time ministry to help lead Crown Jesus, a ministry that reaches tens of thousands of people each year with the Gospel. My book ’Snatched from the Fire’ will be available each night.

Music/ worship and short stories each night from Gary Simpson, a well known local singer and songwriter who had a radical conversion in 2010.

These are fantastic opportunities to invite not-yet-christian friends and family to hear the good news of Jesus. Registration is essential.

We look forward to welcoming you,

Mitch
