BRIGHT FUTRE: Seth Pinnock
FOR THE past eight years, Seth Pinnock has shown fellow young believers what can be achieved with a little faith, determination, tenacity and vision.
At the age of 17 he started his annual Midnight Oil Summit (MOS) as a means to bring young people together from across the denominational spectrum for a time of worship, spiritual empowerment and celebration.
This year, Pinnock will be hosting his last ever MOS in two venues: at Earls Court as part of the last ever Mission to London led by Morris Cerullo on August 8; and at Birmingham Town Hall on August 9.
It promises to be action packed as per usual, complete with leading speakers and artists including Bishop Wayne Malcolm, Noel Robinson, Ram 1, Volney Morgan & New Ye and many many more. He’ll also use the occasion to launch the urban worship album that was recorded at last year’s MOS.
Part of the reason why Seth is ending the MOS is because he’s grown up and is starting a new chapter in his life.
He said: “MOS is an expression of the vision I received when I was 17 years old. Turning 25 this year, it’s apparent that we have grown deeper and wider since then, and it’s time for us to move forward into a new thing which reflects that.”
During his years in the spotlight he’s seen a positive shift in how the church regards its young members, and he’d love to see the church give young people more opportunities to lead and shape the church.
He also had this advice for young people who feel called by God to lead. “Go full throttle at it. As with any vocation, one must desire to achieve one’s best.
“You don’t have to fill your elder’s shoes, just walk in their footsteps because we have our own shoes to fill. We should not endeavour to emulate our father’s template but seek to discover our own.”
The future looks bright for Seth Pinnock. He is currently serving as Regional Director for leading youth charity The Message Trust, and has now established himself as a recording artist. He will always be regarded as a young leader of note.
