Empowered 21 Africa Invite

JERUSALEM

THE PLACE WHERE YOU WILL BE EMPOWERED FROM ON HIGH!

“I will not leave you as orphans, you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem and Judea and unto the ends of the earth, BUT WAIT IN JERUSALEM UNTIL YOU ARE EMPOWERED FROM ON HIGH! “

It happened as He promised! Days after Jesus left earth to go and prepare a place for His bride, the Holy Spirit was poured out and could be seen as TONGUES OF FIRE on 120 of His followers who was waiting…and the rest is history!

IN 2015 WE ARE GOING BACK TO JERUSALEM!

TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL AND TO BE EMPOWERED FROM ON HIGH!

Background

VISION OF EMPOWERED 21

THAT EVERY PERSON ON EARTH WOULD HAVE AN AUTHENTIC ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST THROUGH THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BY PENTECOST 2033.

IN 1906 ANOTHER POWERFULL OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT MARKED THE BEGINNING OF THE AZUZA STREET REVIVAL.

In 2008, the new Oral Roberts University Board of Trustees began work on clarifying the mission of the university for 21st century ministry. An initiative was launched by the Board of Trustees called Empowered21 and the International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to facilitate this process to focus on new generations and the power of the Holy Spirit. Immediately, it was discerned that the convergence of these dynamics was leading toward questions and answers that would serve the entire Spirit-filled movement. Empowered21 began to be understood as a natural kingdom-wide follow-up to the Azusa Street Centennial. The Azusa Centennial reflected on what God had done for the last 100 years and Empowered21 would focus on the future of the movement.

Empowered21 will help shape the future of the Global Spirit-empowered movement throughout the world by focusing on crucial issues facing the movement and connecting generations for inter-generational blessing and impartation.

DISCOVERY

During 2009 and early 2010, Empowered21 held 17 unique conversation events around the world with leaders, scholars and new generation voices to ascertain their insights into the issues facing the movement in the 21st Century. Over 500 people from 54 nations and over 15 different universities were involved in the conversations. Questions like: “What does it mean to be Spirit-empowered in the 21st century?” and “What steps can be taken to engage new generations in the Spirit-filled experience?” were asked.

This process revealed eight themes common to the conversation events as the top needs in the movement – in order of most commonly mentioned:

  1. Need for Leadership Character – leaders who are transparent, filled with integrity, authentic, real, pure, and cleansed
  2. Greater Biblical Literacy – knowledge of the Bible and an understanding of the purpose of the Holy Spirit, gifts of the Spirit, Spirit Baptism, etc.
  3. Need for Spiritual Fathers and Mothers – role models and intergenerational unity to be called for globally
  4. Resources – those harvest fields that seem to be ripest in the 21st Century are the most in need and should be resourced accordingly
  5. Education – ministerial training and higher education
  6. Contextualization – leadership native to the region being served
  7. Transition of Leadership – new leadership of the movement which goes beyond the influence of the USA – moving East and South
  8.  Rise of Islam – intense pressure is being experienced by Spirit-empowered believers who are aggressive in evangelism on this frontier

EMPOWERED21

Conversation input and discoveries were used to inform the program of the first Empowered21: Global Congress on Holy Spirit Empowerment which was held in Tulsa, OK, April 8- 11, 2010. The Congress focused on shaping the future of the Global Spirit-empowered movement by focusing on crucial issues facing the movement and connecting generations for intergenerational blessing and impartation. Over 10,000 people from 95 nations attended the April Congress where over 210 learning conversations and numerous general session events informed and connected them. It became obvious that the Congress was forming a launch base for further exploration.

The International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to solidify and expandEmpowered21 following the Global Congress, and Empowered21 was transferred to theCenter in the summer of 2010. As the governing and fiduciary entity, the ICFSR assigned inspirational oversight of Empowered21 to the E21 Global Council. This relationship allows the Empowered21 movement to move quickly toward its goals while retaining accountability for its vision and transparency in its finance.

Three years later, at the request of the ICFSR board, stewardship of Empowered21 is returning to Oral Roberts University. The Empowered21 network now spans the entire globe and its vision includes reaching every person on Earth. Reuniting Empowered21with ORU brings this global network alongside the scholarship and next-generation vibrancy of a premier Spirit-empowered Christian university.

TO THE WORLD

Empowered21 is now witnessing a convergence and collaboration of Spirit-empowered ministries around the world. A series of regional Empowered21 leadership teams have formed to focus on unique issues faced by Spirit-empowered churches operating within disparate socioeconomic climates. The entire network is able to benefit from best practices and growth in individual regions.

Further research within the Empowered21 network has identified five highly important trends where the Spirit-empowered Church is most likely to grow and positively influence the world. They are:

1) experience a fresh, historic outpouring of the Holy Spirit

2) increase in leadership development within Spirit-empowered churches

3) be increasingly known for meeting human needs in the community

4) see an increase in the practice of divine healing

5) be more open for newer expressions of Spirit-empowered ministry

Twelve Regional Cabinets are now pursuing initiatives and events in their area of the world to address the future of Spirit-empowered Christianity and find ways to connect the generations for spiritual impartation. Each regional cabinet will operate under the same vision and purposes for Empowered21 in their region.

Empowered21 is the first and only vehicle through which all the Spirit-filled Christians, churches, councils and organizations can be united on the entire African continent. Together we will work to evangelize and disciple our continent through a common vision and strategy with the aim of fulfilling the vision within the next 21 years. In 2033 we will be celebrating the outpouring and empowerment  of the Holy Spirit again in Jerusalem.
