Reverend Col & Jan Stringer On Their Pastors Trip To NCC

17 July 2014

G'day partners and friends,

Jan and I have just returned from taking our annual pastors trip to New Creation Church, Singapore. This makes over 200 pastors, leaders and their spouses from Australia and New Zealand that we have taken to attend the Sunday service (31,000 people attend the church on average). After that, we were truly blessed to have a time of personal teaching and fellowship with Pastor Joseph Prince, his wonderful wife Wendy and his awesome staff.

I can truthfully state that we have not taken one minister or leader whose life has not been changed dramatically by attending one of these trips (including Jan and myself), and I cannot speak highly enough of Pastor Prince for his love, generosity and impartation into all of our lives. I truly believe that grace is the next “move” or “message” that the Holy Spirit is using to touch His people, and I know I am not alone in that belief.

Some have spoken about such things as “hyper grace” or the misuse or misunderstanding of grace, but I have found this is usually presented by people who have not had a true revelation of grace for themselves, but just accepted grace as a doctrine. We noticed a similar pattern in the early days of “Word of Faith”, but we are saved BY GRACE, through faith!!

No one is trying to brainwash or “ram grace down people’s throat”, as some make accusations. I, for one, am simply testifying as to what has happened in Jan and my life (and many others). How can you argue doctrine against a person who has had a genuine experience with the Lord and their lives dramatically changed forever?

Many ministers/leaders had broken down and cried in these meetings; some had told me personally they were ready to quit the ministry, indeed had, before the meetings, made up their minds that they were going to do so! One pastor told me he had seriously contemplated suicide. Many have told of the change in their marriages, families, churches and ministry… Most have described how a revelation of true grace has set them free from the constant striving, performing and trying to make things happen using their own strength and abilities!

And I am talking about senior pastors who have been in ministry for many years. Many come from varying backgrounds – Word of Faith, Australian Christian Churches, Churches of Christ and others.

One young pastor – who had previously taken a strong stance against the “grace message” (it's not a message, but a person – Jesus), in fact he had even been studying with Jewish rabbis for years – was sitting in his church when he had a visitation from the Lord. He told me how the heavens had opened up and a huge, shining cross appeared before him and how he heard a voice call him by name and tell him, “Pastor… you have been living in the old covenant and now it's time to move into the new covenant!"

Pastor Mark Elmendorp (Senior Pastor of Albany Hills Christian Church in Brisbane) writes: “The last two days of my trip… I spent them at New Creation Church, Singapore pastored by Joseph Prince, one of the true generals of the faith in the world today. It's a rich church in every way, from the building it meets in, to the country it's located in, to the people who attend, to the excellence of Pastor Prince's preaching. I listened on that particular Sunday morning to Pastor Prince speak for one hour 15 minutes in a ‘Bible college masterclass’. It is said of New Creation Church that its congregation is the most biblically literate congregation on earth. From these two positions, I saw something interesting. God loves the poor and the rich. He doesn't look at these things. He looks at the heart of a man.”

You are highly favoured, greatly blessed and deeply loved!

Col and Jan Stringer
