Home Church: Awaken Church, USA 

When you’re looking for someone who will bring the POWER and FUN from the other side of world who do you call?  Ps. Jurgen Matthesius that’s who! Ps. Jurgen is no stranger to City Impact Church, he’s brought it every time and this year at GLOBAL IMPACT 21 he’ll be bringing it – live by Hologram! All the way from the USA.  Yes, you heard it right.  Ps Jurgen will be opening GLOBAL IMPACT 21 as a live hologram and we CANNOT WAIT!
Along with his beautiful wife Leanne, Ps. Jurgen has had a huge impact on churches in New Zealand, Australia and now in America.  After many years youth pastoring in Australia they founded Awaken Church with just a handful of people. Awaken Church now has 6 Campuses across San Diego and Salt Lake City and impacts thousands of people. Jurgen’s hard hitting, no holds barred, truth bomb preaching is everything we love about GLOBAL IMPACT and more.

Home Church: New Season Church, USA

A great friend of City Impact Church and back for the trifecta, we are stoked to welcome the legend that is Reverend Samuel Rodriguez.  His list of titles is hard to fit into one sentence: Pastor, Movie Producer, Author, Civil Rights Activist, TV Personality, and Presidential Advisor to name but a few! TIME Magazine nominated Rev. Rodriguez as one of the “100 Most Influential People in The World”.
Described by FOX NEWS, CNN, TIME Magazine and the New York Times as “One of America’s Most Influential Voices” he has advised Presidents Bush, Obama and Trump and frequently consults with Congress on issues of immigration, justice reform, religious freedom and pro-life initiatives.
As President of the world’s largest Hispanic Christian organization – the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference – he represents over 42,000 US Churches and many others around the world. Rodriguez is the Senior Pastor of New Season Church, one of America’s fastest growing megachurches, with campuses in Los Angeles and Sacramento, CA, where he lives with his wife, Eva. Rev. Sam brings a simple but powerful message of truth with a conviction and passion that we have come to know and love.  We can’t wait to hear from him at GLOBAL IMPACT 21!

Home Church: Saints Church NYC, USA

We are stoked to introduce to City Impact Church, for the very first time, Ps. Chris Durso! And we are counting down the minutes till we hear from him at GLOBAL IMPACT 21. Ps. Chris is the Lead Pastor of SAINTS Church in Queens, New York City and is the founder of Misfit NYC, a ministry for millennials in New York.  We know Ps Chris gets it because Misfits is known as ‘a local youth ministry with global impact’ – sound familiar!?
Along with his wife Yahris, the couple say they are ‘Passionate about bringing the Gospel to all generations, committed to seeing the presence of God and helping others encounter Him”.
Church, we know you are going to love this man’s heart. Can. Not. Wait.

Home Church: Springs Church, Winnepeg, Canada

The astonishing life story of Ps. Leon Fontaine has led to him being recognized as one of the Heroes of the Faith. Alongside his wife Sally, Ps. Leon has led Springs Church in Winnipeg since 1994. Springs Church has multiplied rapidly to become one of the fastest growing churches in Canada. Ps. Leon has a powerful but practical teaching style on how to live a Spirit Contemporary Life, reaching the world in a relevant and practical way without compromising the Holy Spirit’s awesome power.

Lord Robert Edmiston is a British entrepreneur with a keen interest in politics, business and social issues and is no stranger to City Impact Church. He is the Founder and Chairman of IM Group Limited, a hugely successful group of companies within the automotive, property and finance sectors, which he founded over 40 years ago. He has founded three schools called Grace Academies to bring high quality education in the West Midlands in the UK. In 2011, he was introduced into the British House of Lords and served there until 2015.
Lord Edmiston, along with his wife Tracie, founded Christian Vision in 1988, inspired by his faith to use his business acumen and resources to contribute to Christian ministry on a global scale. Through his various endeavours, and willingness to obey God, Lord Bob has impacted thousands for the Kingdom. We are thrilled to have him joining us for a special Market Makers session at GLOBAL IMPACT 21!

Senior Pastors of City Impact Church

We are beyond excited to invite you to be a part of GLOBAL IMPACT 2021 as we come together, in person (and even by hologram) to STRENGTHEN again that mighty force – the Church! We can’t wait to hear from our incredible line up of Guest Ministry.

Global Impact is always a powerful and anointed time, and as always, it is our great privilege to make it our gift to you – there is no conference fee and no need to register. Just mark the dates in your diary today (2 – 4 July) and we’ll see you there! 

Pastors Peter and Bev



Every city and most towns have at least one bridge, some bridges are over land, some are over water.
They all serve the same purpose, to carry us over treacherous terrain. To move what matters from one place to another.

What if the church is a bridge?
Like any good construction, when a bridge is built the foundations and structure take a lot of time and planning.
And once the bridge is built, maintaining the bridge is a HUGE task.
In order to continue to be reliable and useful, bridges must be constantly and intentionally strengthened.
It’s a work that usually happens without anyone noticing. Unless it doesn’t get done.
Then everyone notices.

At Global Impact 21, City Impact Church will come together again,
all of our locations, all over the world, connecting, listening, worshiping and celebrating.
Responding to the call. The call to WAKE UP –
and together in one spirit and time, under the same word,
we the church will be strengthened.

And the rest will be history …
