On Sunday February 2
two linked Norfolk
churches, Eternity Norwich
and Downham Market Christian Fellowship (DMCF)
, will begin a 14 week series of events titled ‘Decide14’
in the run up to Easter Sunday
Each weekly event will present people with opportunities to examine aspects of their lives and to realise that every choice has a consequence.
Decide14 is the initiative of Paddy Venner (pictured with wife Jennike), who has been Senior Pastor of both churches since Easter 2013, when DMCF who had no pastor asked him, as Leader for the AoG zone of Norfolk and surrounding counties, to lead the church in an advisory capacity.
said: “Decide14 gives people an opportunity to make a God-connection for the first time, to involve themselves in church life to a new level and to decide to live a better life in general. Eternity Norwich and Downham Market Christian Fellowship are contemporary churches that seek to awaken today's seekers to the reality of a God that understands people with real issues and real life circumstances.”
Decide14 will begin on Sunday February 2 with a talk called ‘Decide for Justice’
from Terry Tennens
who has served as Founding Executive Director of International Justice Mission (IJM) UK
Paddy said: “The IJM tackles human trafficking and sex slavery around the world and bring a hard hitting message of freedom and justice to Christ followers everywhere who need to be aware of this growing evil in their land. Everyone is welcome to come along to either church campus on Sunday to hear an important message for our times from the IJM.”
Terry Tennens contributes to the development of IJM's global strategy, provides counsel and support to IJM staff overseas, meets regularly with policy makers and is in demand as a public speaker across the UK to advance the cause of the violently oppressed.
