In July, two powerful Apostolic Conferences where held in Brazil. The first was Conferencia Apostolica 2017 hosted by Apostle Estevam Hernandes at Apostolic Church Reborn in Sao Paulo with guest speakers Sonia Hernandes, Apostles Cesar Augusto, John P. Kelly, and Carlos Quiroa (Mexico). From the conference website:
The Apostolic Conference came about through a vision given by God to Estevam Hernandes - the first Apostle of Brazil - in 2003. It is a convention that brings together apostles, bishops and pastors from all over the world in order to bring a word revealed to them by God and, thus promoting the union of the Body of Christ in a unique experience. "Many years ago, we held the prophetic conferences and realized how powerful it was to pour out the Holy Spirit on people. From there, we evolved and began to hold the apostolic conferences within the vision of blessing and edification of people, "said [Apostle Hernandes], the leader of the Reborn in Christ Church.
"The change to the Apostolic Conference was due to the fact that the event was not only prophetic! We wanted it to have a greater scope within the word of Ephesians 4:11, which says: And he appointed some for apostles, some for prophets, some for evangelists, and some for pastors and teachers. " During the event, people from various parts of the country receive the anointing poured out by the Lord through the lives of preachers and through the manifestation of the apostolic movement, with healing, deliverance, salvation, growth in word and teaching."
This was truly a prophetic/apostolic conference. It was during a meeting with several apostolic leaders in 1999 including John P. Kelly and Estevam Hernandes that the genesis of ICA/ICAL was first discussed and Apostle Hernandes recommended Apostle Kelly to establish the new fellowship. Apostle Kelly has traveled to Brazil numerous times to work with Apostles Rene Terra Nova, Hernandes, and Cesar Augusto (representing the three largest networks of churches in Brazil) to establish and solidify the Brazilian Coalition.
Thousands attended the conference with a great outpouring of the Spirit and anointed words ending with a prayer charge to the people to hold up Apostle Hernandes' arms like Aaron and Hur helped Moses.
Prior to the conference, Apostle Estevam Hernandes led over 3 million people (estimated) in a March for Jesus in Sao Paulo. The main TV station in the nation has only mentioned the march in past years, but the growth of the event was so impressive, they covered the entire event on national TV. March for Jesus is now one of the ICAL Alliances.
On July 26, the ICAL team members; John P. Kelly, Annika Daley, and Dyke Rogers flew to Belo Horizonte for Convergencia 2017 - Invasao Apostolia hosted by Apostle Fernando Guillen with Apostles Chuck Pierce, David Guillen, Deborah Guillen, Mario Chevez, and John P. Kelly. The focus was on influencing the different spheres of the culture and importance of a biblical perspecitive for entrepreneurs. Powerful messages, prayer, and celebration took place throughout the conference, preparing people with faith to walk in their authority and effectively build the Kingdom of God!
