Young FireCamp evangelists in Norwich outreach 

Fifty young people from around the world joined a first-ever UK FireCamp evangelistic course in Norwich in early June and then went out on the streets where over 300 people became Christians and miracles were witnessed.

Christ for All Nations (CfaN) led their first UK FireCamp in Norwich and CfaN staff and coaches taught the nine-day residential course for young evangelists. The students came from around the world and travelled to Norwich to be equipped to see the UK and Europe reached with the Gospel.
 
CfaN has registered over 83 million first-time documented decisions for Christ around the world since it was founded by the late evangelist Reinhard Bonnke in 1974 and is now led by evangelist Daniel Kolenda.
 
Locally, One Church Elim, Radical Church and St Stephen’s were involved. One Church Lead Pastor Sam Collinson, said: “The heart of this first-ever CfaN UK FireCamp was to gather 50 young evangelists whose hearts burn to see the lost come to Christ and desire to grow deeper in their gift of evangelism. These CfaN FireCamps now run around the world with a vision to see each young person come into a deeper awareness of the presence of Jesus in their own lives.”
 
The Norwich FireCamp also facilitated two days of evangelistic outreach to Norwich City Centre, concluding with a significant church crusade event at St Stephen’s Church on Saturday  June 4.
 
“The Gospel was preached with boldness and anointing to thousands of people over the busy Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend,” said Sam. “Many local people shared with the evangelistic teams that they had never heard or understood the message of Jesus Christ before that time! During the evangelistic outreach, over 310 registered decisions for Jesus were received by the CfaN team - these were later followed up by local churches in Norwich for further discipleship.

“Various miracles were also witnessed during this time, including deaf ears being healed and people stepping free of their need for wheelchairs and crutches. Young people of all ages crowded around street preachers to hear and respond to God’s message of life. Many hearing the Gospel preached to them also received life-changing prophetic words from the CfaN teams.

“Local church congregation members also got involved in the city centre outreach and commented on how amazed and inspired they were to see something so significant taking place on the streets of this city.

“The FireCamp was not a speaker or a session-driven event but simply nine days of being Jesus-driven, where the lives of these young people become deeply marked by the presence of God and a fresh desire to see souls saved. Throughout this week, with CfaN staff and coaches training; the students were given the tools they need to boldly enter into the Great Commission of Christ,” said Sam.

The students formed deep friendships and connections for future ministry. Since this FireCamp ended, students have already become involved with evangelistic events together, both in the UK and abroad.

During the CfaN FireCamps, students are equipped to preach but the main focus is placed on spending time with Jesus each day, learning to encounter and abide in Him, and walking with Him as a lifestyle.
 
Sam added: “On Pentecost Sunday, June 5, a significant prophecy was shared at the FireCamp about an imminent seven-year UK revival. This prophecy was delivered by Kevin Charles-Thompson, who was one of the CfaN coaches on the course. Kevin is now due to return to Norwich this summer to fan the flames of Revival in various local churches.”
