Restore

Disciple

Disciple is a conference for all who believe following Jesus is the way to truly see our lives and our world changed. We therefore believe Jesus’ command to go and make disciples of all nations should be at the center of our communities.

 

Disciple was first held in January 2015 and has been arranged every year since. We’ve been blessed to see God use the conference to inspire and mold a generation of disciples of Jesus. Disciple is arranged by Petrus församling in cooperation with OPKO.

Vision

Have you ever seen a master artist at work restoring a painting or a statue that has been torn down? God is like an amazingly creative artist fashioning the heavens and the earth into his liking. A world full of life, taste, fragrance and sound – all of which he created for us to enjoy. A living and enduring testimony of his goodness towards us – in the midst of a world marked by humanity’s rebellion and brokenness.

 

Much like the artist working carefully to restore a broken statue, God is at work restoring the world he made. In an act of amazing patience and grace God chose to seek that which was lost and call humanity to once again reflect his glory. As Sons and Daughters of the King we can rejoice in the reality of being his craftsmanship, God’s treasured art pieces that he is gently restoring into what we were always created to be.
 
As wonderful as this may sound we often fall into the trap of wanting restoration on our own terms. Us telling God what he should do – and how he should do it. Without realizing it we end up building life on our own terms and asking God to bless what we’ve done instead of stepping into what He is doing.
 
As we’ve prayed over this year we’ve sensed that God is calling us into a restored life. A life centered around who He is, a life free from guilt, shame and bondage. A life filled with the joy he wants us to have and a life filled with his transforming power available for us and the world.
 
So how do we begin to experience that? We believe that life in God’s kingdom begins as we respond to his call. As we step out of ourselves and our attempts to build life on our own.
Growth in God’s kingdom is quite simple: It is when we lose our lives in order to gain life that we are restored. It is when we say your will be done and not mine that God is able to truly transform us.
 
We invite you to join us for a weekend of meeting with God and experiencing his transformative call.

When and Where

One Conference – Multiple locations

29-31.1.2021

This year is different from every previous year. Instead of gathering in one place we’ll be gathering in many different locations with seven different cities represented. Though we’ll be gathering in different locations we firmly believe that God is using the current worldwide pandemic to multiply that which He is doing and to let the seeds of the Kingdom be thrown wide. We look forward to being able to gather as one family spread out over many locations all over Finland.

Program

In its essence discipleship is about being with Jesus and joining him in what he is doing. We believe that as we hear his words and by his grace put them into practice we are transformed. (Matthew 7:24) As we gather we more than anything else look to be with Jesus, experience His love for us and hear from Him. We therefore create space for prayer, opening up the bible together and worshipping together. We are excited to see what God will do as we gather all over Finland this year – and hope you will join us in praising Him who made it all and is restoring it all!
