Walking in the Pleasure of God

Walking in the Pleasure of God

We’re excited to have Steve and Wendy Backlund with us at Eastgate in June 2017. Steve and Wendy, along with Pete Carter will be the main speakers at 2 events over Friday 9th and Saturday 10th June.

During Friday daytime we will have a leaders’ training day. Then, on Friday evening and all day Saturday we will run the ‘Walking in the Pleasure of God’ conference.

Full details can be found below.


Leaders’ Training Day

Ephesians 1 talks about God choosing us in accordance with His pleasure and His will. In this leader’s training day, we will explore how the pleasure of God impacts our lives as leaders and how it impacts our environments.

At Eastgate, we have experienced how walking in the pleasure of God is unlocking new spiritual realities for us: deeper intimacy, increased love for the Word and a sense of understanding His eternal purpose in a greater measure.

Steve Backlund is one of the founders and coordinators of Bethel’s ‘Leadership Development Programme’. With his wife, Wendy, he also travels extensively to equip churches in the development of Kingdom Culture. They have fantastic experiences to share with us from their own story of walking in God’s pleasure.


Walking in the Pleasure of God

Experiencing the pleasure of God can be an overwhelming thing. It impacts our lives and can open gates into fresh understanding of God. Enjoying this as a lifestyle is truly transformative.

God has a dream of reconciling all things to Himself. That is his pleasure and we get to participate in his dream.

At this conference we will seek to explore and understand how walking in the pleasure of God can equip us, enlarge us and make us more fruitful.


Steve and Wendy Backlund

Steve and Wendy Backlund are revivalist teachers who travel extensively to encourage and empower individuals around the world in victorious mindsets and revival culture. They pastored 10 years in Nevada where they led their church into renewal, significant numerical growth, and increased effectiveness in the community. They then pastored in Weaverville for 7 years before moving to Redding, California, to join the leadership team at Bethel Church. Steve and Wendy also are the founders of Igniting Hope Ministries. They have a message that ignites hope and joy wherever they go. They believe strong local churches are the key to sustaining and increasing the manifestation of this current spiritual awakening.

They have great gifts and experience in helping people understand the goodness and glory of God in increasing measure. It is always fun being around them.


Pete Carter

Pete Carter is one of the senior leaders at Eastgate. He defines his job as providing leadership, vision, strategy, faith and inspiration. He started leading the church in 1988 and, almost 30 years later, he keeps cultivating his curiosity and amazement at what God has done and is doing. His passion is to see the full potential of Christianity realised through our daily lives.

Pete will share from the experiences of Eastgate and a theological understanding that underpins what walking in the pleasure of God means.
