Alan Platt talks at the Movement Day UK 2017 conference in Methodist Central Hall Westminster about equipping and commissioning every Christian to be city changers.
Alan Platt is an agent of transformation in the lives of individuals, local churches and corporate structures of society. He has been full-time in Christian ministry since 1983, serving the church on various levels. Under his leadership Doxa Deo has been birthed and is currently serving 30000 people in eleven different campuses functioning as one integrated church in the city of Pretoria.
Alan says, "We have seen some amazing initiatives for unity and kingdom engagement in various cities across the globe. However, many of them are driven by parachurch organizations and the church has not come to engage as I believe it could. My contribution – as someone who has seen God facilitate unity and city transformation through the local church – would be to stir up pastors and leaders of local churches with a challenge to become more relevant to their communities at this very important time in world history. We will be sharing a strategy that would not result in the establishment of yet another program in the church, but rather stimulate a culture that releases the people of the church to be transformational agents in their communities!"
