Becoming Like Christ is a Global Tamil Christian Conference which takes place in the heart of Wales annually, inviting Christians around the world to come and be discipled to live more like Christ. Registration is now open, so please don't hesitate to register, and also subscribe to our mailing list below to keep up to date with information concerning BLC Conference 2020:
Rev. Joseph Chinnaiyan was born in India as an orthodox Hindu and accepted Jesus Christ at the age of 13. At the early stage of his conversion, Joseph felt the call of God strongly and committed his life to do full-time ministry. After his initial training with Dr Justin Prabakaran, Joseph moved to the UK to pursue his Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Theology from Regents Theological college. He was also trained as a Counselor and has completed various other studies like discipleship and leadership training.
Joseph was appointed as the Director of Training for Youth With A Mission - YWAM (an international interdenominational mission organisation) for 3 years. He also served as a member of the board of the YWAM council for 3 years.
Joseph is currently serving as the senior pastor of New Hope Tamil Church in Smethwick, Birmingham since 1999. He is a man of audacious faith and an exceptional leader filled with God-given vision and dreams. Since his appointment as the Senior Pastor, he has taken New Hope church on a new journey and has seen positive changes which have contributed hugely to the growth of the church. He is a gifted preacher and teacher and has experience in more than 15 countries.
Joseph is married to Elisabeth and they have 2 lovely sons Joshua and Jacob.
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about who we are. The Becoming Like Christ Conference was birthed out of a God-given vision for the body of Christ to be more like our master, Jesus. Below, you will see why we exist, what you can expect and when and where we meet.
WHY COME TO BLC?
The sole purpose of this conference is to have a holistic transformation in the lives of Pastors, Leaders, Believers, and the next generation to be more like Christ. God is looking for a generation who can fully surrender their lives to be used by God to achieve great things for Him and live an authentic Christian life for His glory. Being a Christian is not only about going to Church on a Sunday or reaching heaven for eternal life. We are believing and praying that our time at BLC Conference will radically transform our character and empower us to become more like Christ (Ephesians 4:13).
WHAT WILL YOU DO AT BLC?
BLC Conference is for the whole Church family: Pastors, Leaders, Believers, Youth, and Children. We will be having times of God-centred worship, life-transforming teaching, and meaningful fellowship. These four days are packed with vibrant worship, seminars, resources and powerful teaching by world-renowned speakers. Throughout the four days, separate sessions will be held for the adults, youth and children, as well as occasional combined sessions for adults and youth. Your young children will be well cared for and spiritually guided by our passionate Sunday school teachers, and your teenage children will be nurtured and rooted in the word of God with the guidance and care from some of our world-renowned guest speakers. In addition, the four days will give attendees plenty of opportunities to have meaningful fellowship with Christians all around the world.
