AoG Conference 2023

“Welcome to our Assemblies of God conference 2023 website. These last four years of AoG have been an exciting time; from our final conference in Bradford, through the covid pandemic and then our gatherings here in Harrogate, there has been such a beautiful sense of community within AoG GB.

Thank you for your support as we have together made huge strides in ensuring that we are a movement with momentum. Leadership development (including our all new brilliant Missio Dei College), Church Health and Mission have created an immense platform for launching our church planting strategy in 2022. It was such a joy to see hundreds of you at the altar last year, committing to the journey of Church Planting.

These last 12 months have been a Roller-Coaster; we have many brilliant stories to tell you. Church plants to champion, missionaries and chaplains to honour, and that's before we start to unpack the next steps.

I'm looking forward to seeing you.”

- Ps Glyn Barrett, National Leader AoG GB

Ps Jason Lozano

After growing up in a broken home, abandoned by his biological father and abused by his step-father, Pastor Jason Lozano never imagined that one day he would be completely restored and healed from the wounds of his childhood and multiple drug addictions. However, that all changed in the early 1990s when he attended a Christian concert while high on drugs.

Miraculously, Jason immediately sobered up as the presence of God overtook him, and he ran forward toward the stage to receive Jesus Christ in his heart without hesitation. A few years later Jason responded to the calling on his life when he heard God's voice speaking to him to reach the broken and the lost. He began evangelizing and leading young men and women groups throughout the Los Angeles area.

Since that time, his life has never been the same and the reach of his ministry has only grown. Freedom City Church (FCC) was born in a small art studio in Uptown Whittier, CA, and it has quickly expanded to the present two facilities Pastor Jason and his beautiful wife and co-pastor, Elizabeth, lead in Whittier, CA.
