'Don’t give up!!... Perseverance and resilience in troubled times'

The EQUIP 2022 Conference – Online & In Person!

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12

Life – and church leadership – is a journey full of ups and downs. When the path ahead of us seems exceptionally tough, it can be tempting to look for short-cuts, to take the easier path, or even to turn back entirely. The Bible is full of examples of God’s people having to make the sometimes difficult choice of “God’s way or my way” – and what a challenge and encouragement it can be to us when we read of how God has demonstrated his grace and power to those who displayed perseverance and resilience in their faith.

At EQUIP 2022 we heard examples – from the Bible, from Welsh history and from our contemporary brothers and sisters in Christ – of how God has blessed and supported his people as they have stood firm during some of their toughest moments in life.
