Live - Keswick Convention 2019 - 17 July 9.30am - Lecture 1 - Longing: Ours, Theirs and Everyone’s
It is curious that in our deeply divided world, humanity seems easily able to reach consensus that 'things are not as they should be'. Our problem lies in our failure to agree on the 'what should be' bit. For followers of Jesus, the Great Commission is a vital part of 'what should be' - good news of great joy shared with the whole world! Yet enthusiasm for it, and the language used to articulate it, has shifted constantly through church history. 'Longing', as both word and paradigm, brilliantly captures an underappreciated but powerful aspect of God’s design for global mission.
Jason Mandryk was born, grew up, and studied in Canada before moving to the UK to join the Operation World team. For 20 years, he has served through multiple editions and publications of this ministry, as researcher, editor, author, and team leader. He is thrilled to minister in an exciting time when we are seeing the increasing convergence of information, prayer, and mission. He also enjoys being outdoors amidst God’s created grandeur; Keswick allows the best of both passions!

European Leadership Forum '18 - David's Success - Peter J Williams - Talk 2
1 Samuel 18 - 2 Samuel 10: In the second part of his series on David, Peter J. Williams addresses David’s deliverance and eventual rise to power. Most leaders have to deal with success. Human success can have many good consequences and can even be a means for God to work out his plans. However, any success comes from God’s grace alone, and the mere fact that God is blessing our ministry does not mean we’re doing things right. Success can even be despite what we do.
Peter J. Williams is the Principal and CEO of Tyndale House, Cambridge. He was educated at Cambridge University, where he received his MA, MPhil, and PhD in the study of ancient languages related to the Bible. After his PhD, he was on staff in the Faculty of Divinity, Cambridge University (1997–1998), and thereafter taught Hebrew and Old Testament at Cambridge University as Affiliated Lecturer in Hebrew and Aramaic and as Research Fellow in Old Testament at Tyndale House, Cambridge (1998–2003). From 2003 to 2007 he was on the faculty of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, where he became a Senior Lecturer in New Testament and Deputy Head of the School of Divinity, History, and Philosophy. Since 2007 he has been leading Tyndale House, and he is also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Divinity in the University of Cambridge. He is a member of the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version of the Bible. Most recently he has been assisting Dr Dirk Jongkind in Tyndale House’s production of a major edition of the Greek New Testament.
The European Leadership Forum meets annually in Central Europe to unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders to renew the biblical church and evangelise Europe. As a coalition of evangelical Christian groups, they seek to do what no single organisation could do alone: provide a bridge between God’s global resources and local leaders from all over Europe. The Forum consists of 27 Networks focused on everything from apologetics to science, media to politics. This annual meeting now brings together 800 participants from more than 40 countries.
