Many people say the biggest influence from their youth was their favourite teacher. But what makes a teacher a positive influence in the life of a child?

That’s the question Rev Keith Garner and Dr Briony Scott will be exploring in this week’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV as they discuss Briony’s experiences as the headmistress of Wenona School for girls in Sydney.

“I'm playing a long game. I love what I do. Every woman who comes across my path, I want them to grow up to know who they are and I want them to be strong in themselves,” said Briony

‘I Can Only Imagine’, by MercyMe, is the most commercially successful Christian song of all time. And it’s no wonder, with such an inspiring and heartfelt message! On today’s episode, Deb Ezzy-Walton, Craig Gower and the Wesley Impact Band as they perform a beautiful rendition of this hit.

Keith's message: Jesus prays for you

Rev Keith Garner opens our eyes to the amazing moment in John chapter 17 when Jesus prays for all disciples.

Rev Garner explains that when Jesus prays, he shares his glory with us and emphasises the intimate relationship we can have with God the Father through him.

It’s a wonderful thought that Jesus is concerned for every one of us—and we can all respond to his invitation.
