Jo and Lois Willis

Jo and Lois have been involved in our Young Adults conference since its inception, and took the helm in 2019! Their dream is to establish something that will ignite a generation for the sake of the gospel across Europe. As the Assistant Pastors of Hope City Church in Sheffield – specifically overseeing and caring for the 11-30 year olds – they sit, chat and pray with students and young adults daily, drawing out the gold in them and establishing deep roots in Christ so each one can rise in influence in their generation.

Tebo and Becky Mpanza

After years of being involved in Young Adults ministry in Hope City Church in Leeds, Tebo and Becky made the move to Birmingham in 2015 to become the Lead Pastors of Hope City Church in the heart of the Midlands. With nationwide influence, they’ve created an amazing platform for young adults to thrive on and unlock the gifting that God has placed in the lives around them. Tebo and Becky have also recently launched their own businesses, venturing into the corporate world and making moves in their respective industries too.

So.ciety Conference extends far beyond our Young Adult ministries. If you feel like you are able to invest in someone being able to make it who otherwise wouldn’t, then you can do so here.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. It’s more than just kindness, it’s a seed we believe will produce many many more in the not too distant future!



So.ciety works in conjunction with Red Frogs UK – a global student support network for young people from the age of 17 to 30.

Red Frogs exists to serve a generation that is hugely affected by drugs and alcohol – supporting and giving practical help when needed. The network is based throughout churches across the UK, as well as in clubs and uni halls – cooking up pancakes and giving out water from hydration stations and safely helping people home when nights out take a turn for the worst. Want to know more? Check out our website for more info and how to get in touch!



A So.ciety is defined as an organization or club formed for a particular purpose or activity, and our particular purpose is to make Jesus Christ famous across our nation through our generation. 

Join Ps Jo Willis and Ps Tebo Mpanza as we invite friends from across the UK and beyond to talk about how we can play a part in seeing God do the things we dream of!
