Mark Driscoll on Newfrontiers

"The Newfrontiers folks are a very healthy mix of Word and Spirit. They love the Bible and the leading of God the Holy Spirit. Sometimes in the States those who are charismatic are negatively influenced by health and wealth teachers who say that, in essence, if you have enough faith you do not need to be like Jesus and endure pain or poverty.

In contrast, somehow the folks I am meeting from around the world who are connected to Newfrontiers have a healthy biblical reformed theology complemented with an active and biblical view of the person and work of the Holy Spirit and exercise of all spiritual gifts. I have always believed in the perpetuity of all the spiritual gifts (including such things as tongues and prophecy) but have not had much experience in seeing them exercised biblically, so being in circles like this is very insightful and instructive".

Situated between Southern Alps and Tasman Sea, you can enjoy mountain biking, visit the Land of Promise and the Karamea Gorge and even go heli-rafting on Karamea River. "But I don't have any unique abilities" you say. Joy because we were gathering together, sadness because this was perhaps the last time. Most excavators take time to stand throughout the day to take a short break, look to see whats going on around them, and then return to work.
