Outlook 2020: The Delphi Study
Over 130 global leaders in the Empowered21 network were invited to participate in a study to determine which issues will most shape the future of Spiritempowered Christianity. A total of 13 emerging trends were classified according to their probability of occurring by 2020, the level of impact an occurrence would have, and its desirability for the Church.

the Future
oF

The study revealed four highly important trends where the Spirit-empowered Church is most likely to grow and positively influence the World:
By 2020, there will be an increase in leadership development within Spirit-empowered churches. By 2020, the Spirit-empowered movement will increasingly be known for meeting human needs in the community. By 2020, the church will experience a fresh, historic outpouring of the Holy Spirit. By 2020, Pentecostals will be more open to work with newer expressions of Spiritempowered ministry. The fifth trend is only slightly less likely, but highly desired by the Global Church: By 2020, the practice of divine healing will increase among Spirit-empowered churches. Empowered21 is actively seeking to meet the needs of the Global Spirit-empowered Church and is working to address each of the top five emerging trends identified by the Outlook 2020 study.

pril 25-29, 2006 the International Center for Spiritual Renewal facilitated and hosted the Azusa Street Centennial. This one hundred year anniversary celebration of the Azusa Street revival was attended by over 50,000 people from 106 different nations. The streams of Spirit-filled Christianity converged in Los Angeles to rejoice in a century of blessing on this movement that now numbers over 600 million people around the world. n 2008, the new Oral Roberts University Board of Trustees began work on clarifying the mission of the university for 21st century ministry. An initiative was launched by the Board of Trustees called Empowered21 and the International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to facilitate this process to focus on new generations and the power of the Holy Spirit. Immediately, it was discerned that the

convergence of these dynamics was leading toward questions and answers that would serve the entire Spirit-filled movement. Empowered21 began to be understood as a natural kingdomwide follow up to the Azusa Street Centennial. The Azusa Centennial reflected on what God had done for the last 100 years and Empowered21 would focus on the future of the movement.

uring 2009 and early 2010, Empowered21 held 17 unique conversation events around the world with leaders, scholars and new generation voices to ascertain their insights into the issues facing the movement in the 21st Century. Over 500 people from 54 nations and over 15 different universities were involved in the conversations. Questions like: What does it mean to be Spirit-empowered in the 21st century? and What steps can be taken to engage new generations in the Spirit-filled experience? were asked.

onversation input and discoveries were used to inform the program of the Empowered21 Global Congress on Holy Spirit Empowerment which was held in Tulsa, OK April 8- 11, 2010. The Congress focused on shaping the future of the Global Spiritempowered movement by focusing on crucial issues facing the movement and connecting generations for intergenerational blessing and impartation. Over 10,000 people from 95 nations attended the April Congress where over 210 learning conversations and numerous general session events informed and connected them. It became obvious that the Congress was forming a launch base for further exploration.

he International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to lead Empowered21 into the future and Empowered21 was officially transferred to the Center in the summer of 2010. Empowered21 is now witnessing a convergence and collaboration of Spirit-empowered ministries around the world. A series of regional Empowered21 gatherings are forming to focus on unique issues faced by Spirit-empowered churches operating within disparate socioeconomic climates. leven Regional Cabinets are now pursuing initiatives and events in their area of the world to address the future of Spirit-empowered Christianity and find ways to connect the generations for spiritual impartation. Each regional cabinet will operate under the same vision and purposes for Empowered21 in their region.

Focusing
In 2012, pulpits all over the world proclaimed the transforming, renewing, empowering truth about the Holy Spirit. Pentecost Sunday became a time to experience the healing, miracles, and strength that the Holy Spirit brings to Christian lives. The Holy Spirit lifts up Jesus and, through Jesus, the world will be saved. This movement is continuing to help churches discover afresh the power of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday.

Leading
Every Empowered21 region has been asked to commit to hosting a regional event the weekend prior to Pentecost Sunday in 2014. The next E21 Global Congress will celebrate Pentecost from Jerusalem in 2015!

resourcES
A wide variety of materials on the Holy Spirit including sermon notes, videos, artwork, and scholarly articles, are being made available to pastors and church leaders on an ongoing basis through the web platform at: www.pentecostsunday.tv

On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrated in 117 cities around the country, with an approximate attendance of 21,100 people. People came with reverence, and whole families were together to the altar. We could see the younger generation being filled and worshiping the King of Kings. Everyone at the altar was heartbroken, contrite, and received physical healing (sight, bones), inner healing (joy, freedom, peace, and renovation) and the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. Two young people quit drugs right there at the altar. Argentina We celebrated Pentecost beginning with 10 days of praying, fasting, and Bible studying prior to that Sunday. We celebrated with two services. Both were packed and people came expecting. After preaching, the Holy Spirit began moving. People (young, adults and children) were weeping, dancing, speaking in tongues, interpreting tongues, falling on the floor, running...it was powerful!!! After the services, people were receiving from the Spirit in their houses and still in awe. Puerto Rico Great service with teenagers and adults being filled up and speaking in tongues for the first time. Others were re-filled up. Extremely encouraging for whole church. Australia

i initiatiVes

All of a sudden, the congregation started going down one by one on their knees. About 13 people came forward and a wind just blew over them and all of them started opening their mouth and speaking with other tongues. Seven among them were healed. It was a blessing by God. Ghana On Pentecost Sunday we preached the message of the Holy Spirit as power to change our life as He did in the time of the Disciples. More than 250 were filled with the Holy Spirit. Sixty pastors were renewed with Gods power and forty people were healed from different diseases. Burundi We had great services this weekend. Its the first time we had a full-on celebration of Pentecost Sunday in 24 years of the churches existence. We started a new tradition! South Carolina The fire of Pentecost filled the whole Church and the children were at the altar. People were still there three hours after the service ended waiting for the anointing to lift. Michigan I used the entire month of May to preach on the Power of Pentecost, using some of the tools provided by Empowered21. We had 18 people baptized in the Holy Spirit and are now seeing the results as they are sharing Christ with their friends and families. Ohio

SCHOLARSHIP
June of 2012, a group of select international scholars came together with the stated goal: To reflect on the theological challenges Spirit-empowered Christianity faces in the 21st Century. Informing, deepening and make more efficacious the goals and purposes of all E21 initiatives, their work will culminate in a theological track at the 2015 Global Congress in Jerusalem.

j A Local Church Experience to Connect the Generations i

The Empowered21 Generations Weekend Experience is designed to provide a replicable model for local churches to answer the cry from new generations for spiritual fathers and mothers. The goal of providing intergenerational relationship opportunities is ultimately for mentoring to take place and spiritual parenting to be experienced. The weekend contains worship, teaching, fun, food, fellowship and impartation moments. A variety of presentation styles including small group discussion, teaching, music, fellowship, expert panels, and individual interaction are used to engage the participants. The weekend is intentional in connecting the generations. Grace North Foursquare Church in Anthem, Arizona helped conduct the first Generations Weekend with 100 people in attendance. Three generations were engaged; the youngest participant being 15 years old and the oldest 78.

initiatiVes

The Generations Weekend Experience will be tested further this year in other congregations with the goal being to produce a Weekend Experience resource for churches to use to live out Empowered21 among their constituency. The Generations Weekend Experience is designed for broad local church participation, anticipating that Spirit-empowered churches around the world will utilize this tool. Three variables were measured. Each showed signiciant improvement upon completion of the Weekend Experience: (1) An Increased Understanding of the Biblical Terminology and Process for Intergenerational Mentoring (2) An Increased Sense of Personal Well-Being and Enrichment Through Increased Intergenerational Connections (3) An Increased Desire for and Intentionality Toward Intergenerational Relationships.

First Time Ever for Canadian Pentecostal / Charismatic Leaders to Network at This Level

mpowered21 Canada, a unique, history making movement, will assist in focusing select Spirit-filled, Christian leaders, next gen voices and leading scholars who will be representative of voices from across Canada on the future of Spirit-empowered Christianity.
The diverse group of leaders who have joined the E21 Canada cabinet have done so because this means of linking Pentecostal/Charismatic organizational leaders, scholars and Next Gen leaders nationally is needed in Canada and the focus of Holy Spirit Empowerment for the 21st Century is a priority.

The first Empowered21 Middle East meeting was held in Nicosia Cyprus in April, 2011. Leaders gathered from across the Middle East. Many met for the first time. Because of prevalent religious persecution toward Christians in some regions, many of the leaders are risking their lives to be a part of this movement. The cabinet discussed how Empowered21 Middle East could help bring a great harvest in the midst of unrest and turmoil.

Converge21 USA
Empowered21 USA, in partnership with the Society for Pentecostal Studies, brought select leaders, scholars and next generation voices together at Converge21 USA at Regent University and Rock Church in Virginia Beach. The four days featured high-impact general sessions, as well as 100 practical learning conversations and workshops, attended by more than 800 registrants. At the concluding Impartation Service, Tim Ross said, Converge21 was an incredible amalgam of wisdom, passion, and intellect. As a Next Gen leader I felt a deep sense of responsibility to honor the Pentecostal tradition of our spiritual fathers/mothers and a very strong conviction to preach and teach sound theology.

Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said, Converge21 provided a historic multi-ethnic and multi-generational platform for the Spirit-empowered American church. I stand convinced that as this generation touches God, He will rise up and touch the next generation. God is not done with America!

resolution
WHEREAS a major contributor to the erosion of Biblical Christianity in America has been the loss of a clear understanding of and commitment to the Biblical teachings and practices of the person, immediacy, and power of the Holy Spirit; and WHEREAS some Pentecostal and Charismatic Christian communities in America are experiencing an increase in Biblical illiteracy, a decreased desire for holiness, a lack of the fear of God, and significant moral and leadership failure; and WHEREAS a significant gap exists between the aging leadership of many Spirit-empowered communities and the leadership formation and empowerment of students and young adults; and WHEREAS a separation continues to exist between scholarship on the Holy Spirit and the praxis of Spirit-empowered communities; and WHEREAS many Pentecostal and Charismatic Christian communities report a decrease in Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, mission awareness and involvement at home and abroad; now THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Empowered 21 USA gathering of scholars, Christian leaders, and next generation voices held at Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA, February 29 March 3, 2012, affirms its unmoving belief in and commitment to the Biblical teaching of the holiness, immediacy, and power of the Spirit of God and the Spirits empowerment of the Christian life and community (1 Corinthians 2:13); and BE IT RESOLVED that we recommit ourselves to humbly seeking the fear of God (Acts 9:31) by immersing ourselves in His Holy Word (Hebrews 4:12) and cultivating the desire for a renewed holiness that His Spirit brings (Romans 1:4); and

71

usa: ConVerge21

BE IT RESOLVED that we will endeavor to answer the cry of the next generation for spiritual fathers and mothers by serving them through training, guidance, and modeling a complete surrender to the work of the Holy Spirit (Habakkuk 3:2); and BE IT RESOLVED that we will seek to further our understanding and cooperation with the Spirit of God through a commitment to both scholarship and practice, recognizing that they both are empowered and guided by the same Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:15); and BE IT RESOLVED that we will revere and utilize Pentecost Sunday of each year for teaching and preaching on the Holy Spirit, inviting every generation to experience the Spirit; and BE IT RESOLVED that we will discern and develop a framework for Spirit-empowered discipleship, which will include age and stage outcome-based benchmarks of what a Spirit-empowered, Christ follower looks like and lives like; and BE IT RESOLVED that we will boldly obey the call of Christ to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28: 1820), proclaiming Gods Kingdom, Gods liberation, and Gods justice to the least of these (Matthew 25:40), while affirming that it is not by might nor by power but by Gods Spirit that Gods mission is fulfilled (Zach 4:6, Mark 16:17-18, Acts 1:8), and BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that we will unite together around the vision: That every person in the United States of America and on earth would have an authentic encounter with JESUS CHRIST through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit by Pentecost 2033. This resolution was drafted during the Converge21 USA meeting. First signed by attendees at the concluding Commissioning Service, it continues to be endorsed by people all over the United States at Empowered21.com .
