The authors

For the past 24 years we have helped equip church leaders and individual Christians for actively co-operating with the Holy Spirit through the 'Dunamis Project'. We have seen people grow in their understanding, experience and spiritual gifting ...and therefore growing in their effectiveness in the Kingdom of God.

In 2008 we redeveloped the resources from Dunamis, presenting them for a corporate, congregational setting - for churches and other ministries. The result was Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit, available as both a book and a conference.
