Shabbach Conference PF – Nic Kennington

This is my fifth year attending Shabbach and my first year as a volunteer staff member.  I came this weekend with the mindset that God was going to use me in a mighty way and I was blown away with what He did.  He not only used me to change other people’s lives but he also touched me.  I was on the altar team and after Pastor Daniel Gray’s message Friday night, the altar was full of kids looking for salvation.  We, the altar team, were moving from teenager to teenager praying for salvation and breakthroughs in every teenager’s life there.  I was going so fast that I didn’t see the big picture that was taking place right before my eyes, so I just went right on my way praying for every teenager that I could reach.  The next night was when I had my God experience.  That night, Pastor Glenn Walters spoke on the woman with the issue of blood and how she was scared and bleeding.  I was privileged to be able to sit on stage with Eddie James’ crew and The Shabbach Master Commission that night and listen to Pastor Glenn’s message up close.  I don’t know why, but being up on stage made the message so much better and so much more real to me because I was able to be a part of the message.  When Glenn made the altar call for all the kids that were bleeding, I could see the multitude of people flock to the front praying for their needs.  That’s when I saw the big picture, that the labor is much but the laborers are few.  This world needs disciples and I have to be one of those disciples.  I quickly ran off stage and started to pray for teens again.  There was a lot more teens this night then there was Friday night, which meant that we had to work harder to reach all of the teens.  I found myself looking around in the middle of the crowd and saw all of the people that were slain in the Spirit and speaking in tongues because they had just been healed from their pain and their bondages were broken.  I then started to praise the Almighty God for what He had done that night and for what He was going to do the rest of the weekend.  After every Shabbach I come back different from when I left, and this time was no exception. I came back knowing that God had used me to my fullest ability.  I know that God had accomplished amazing things in my life and the lives of others.
