Evangelist / Church Leader
Tim Hall is one of Australia’s leading evangelists. Together with his wife Jacque, they have ministered extensively throughout the world. Their forthright and anointed preaching, coupled with a great manifestation of the power of God has seen over 1 million saved, thousands healed, drastically changed, baptised in the Holy Spirit and filled with a fresh touch of revival power.
Tim pioneered his first church in 1975 in Murray Bridge South Australia before becoming the youth pastor of Klemzig (now Influencers Church) in 1976 seeing it grow to become the largest youth group in Australia. Over the years he has helped pioneer a number of churches across Victoria, Australia but then in the 1980’s began to step into the role of evangelist, conducting meetings across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. The campaigns grew significantly in the coming years seeing huge crowds surpassing over 100,000 people in attendance.
Today, Tim and his wife Jacque, have preached on every continent (excluding the Antarctic) seeing great harvests of souls and thousands of significant miracles. In Papua New Guinea alone they have conducted forty campaigns, seven of these campaigns being held at the national stadium.
“Lead Summit is unique and one of my highlights as a leader. Equiping, encouraging and celebrating, this world class event is a non-celebrity enviroment that tears away the mystik of leadership and growth. It’s just brillant!”
“For us, LeadSummit is about being baptised in a discipleship culture, a leadership pathway, a display of volunteerism that is amongst the best in Europe. It’s a download from heaven. You have got to experience this for yourself.”
“Lead Summit for me has always had a great mix of meeting up with friends, being inspired and challenged by Pastor Dave and the Hope City team, and receiving practical help on the journey of leadership and Pastoring. There is always a prophetic edge to these gatherings which for me add something extra special. Lead Summit is an essential date in my calendar!”
“We really enjoy taking time out to attend Leadsummit! The speakers are always outstanding and the atmosphere is incredible. The Hope City team give you the best welcome and make you feel like family.”
“I have loved attending lead summit for many years now, and it’s one of the first things we put in the diary for our team to attend. Without a doubt it has been one of the most influential, creative, leadership events that has consistently helped us to progress and improve. There have also been some specific encounter moments that dramatically impacted us, the results of which were seen immediately.”
