Awakening Europe host, Ben Fitzgerald is the founder of the Empowered Evangelists Network and Godfest Ministries. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Ben was once a drug addict, but his life was radically changed when he met Jesus. He has served as a pastor at Bethel Church, Redding, CA and his heart now burns for the evangelisation of Europe. The first Awakening Europe event drew capacity crowds in Nuremberg and after Stockholm more events are being planned in other European cities.
