Keynote Speaker: David Balestri

With over 20 years of ministry expression David Balestri is a seasoned prophet who functions with a dynamic prophetic anointing in the realms of church governance, leadership and also marketplace ministry.

Currently David and his wife Nicole operate several successful businesses. David also functions as the executive pastor and business manager at Hope Unlimited Church on the Central Coast of Sydney Australia, under Senior Pastors Mark and Darlene Zschech. David serves trans-locally as a prophet to several apostolic networks and streams and travels extensively around the globe as an advocate of the apostolic and prophetic ministry paradigm that is being restored into the body of Christ at this time. David is recognised as a governmental building prophet to the body of Christ and works with senior pastors, networks and denominations in building functional prophetic architecture and strategies for the extension of the kingdom in the context of local church, territorial and national expressions.
