We are excited to invite you to a very unique International Mission Conference called “RUNNING WITH HORSES” that we will be hosting in Pretoria next year.

 Please plan to be there!

 Everywhere we go it seems the Lord is speaking the word “Acceleration.” This conference is about the coming harvest and how we prepare for it.

With a number of international speakers and leaders that are being invited from over 80 countries, the conference will be a unique opportunity to hear what God is doing around the world. and also to connect with mission minded pastors from across South Africa and the rest of the world. 

 The program will consist of plenary sessions in the morning, breakout sessions in the afternoon and celebrations in the evenings. There will be plentyof opportunities to interact with international and local leaders and mission minded pastors during the breakouts.

 The last evening celebration promises to be a gala event, open to members of all churches.  

We will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the World Mission Centre.


Hosted by Willie & Lydia Crew  from World Mission Centre

Why the Name Running With Horses? 

It was in the early years of Willie & Lydia’s ministry at – back then – Hatfield Baptist Church when Bill Harmon prophesied over them. Many things he said then have come true over the last 35 years.

Among them was a quote from Jeremiah 12:5 – “If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?”

That scripture has remained in their hearts and spirits for all these years. To them, it speaks of incredible acceleration when we least expect it, something we are experiencing at present in an unprecedented way around harvest fields of the world. 

Running with Horses is a conference to mobilize local churches in joining the work of the Great Commission that God is accelerating in our day and age. At the same time, it will be the 30thanniversary celebration of the World Mission Centre. as well as a moment of handing over the organization’s leadership to the next generation.

Overview of the conference

Dates: 23 – 25 July 2019.

Venue: Choose Life Church in Pretoria, South Africa

The Running with Horses conference will be held 23 – 25 July 2019 at Choose Life Church in Pretoria, South Africa.

There will be break-out sessions, each afternoon. The first two days we will break-out into 14 world regions, to allow you to connect with people from those regions.

During the last afternoon, we will have three break-out sessions:

Let me encourage you to not miss this unique opportunity to hear first-hand from men and women who are leaders working to bring the gospel to the unreached all around the world. May their testimony, experience, and insight impact you to believe that the God that is doing it there, will also do it where you and I are living.
