National Conference 2017

At our National Conference in 2017 we will be asking God to help us see our blindspots clearly. In this 500th year since the Reformation, where do we still need to be reforming? What areas of our lives and ministry need correction? What are we missing when it comes to reaching Australia with the good news of Jesus Christ? Where are we in danger of being blindsided, both from outside and inside our churches?

At this years conference, Dave McDonald, our new National Director, will be opening up Revelation 1-7 and exploring what the Spirit has to say to our FIEC churches today. Peter Jensen, will encourage us to learn from the past, and apply it to the present, for the sake of our future. We will re-examine what it means to be evangelical and reformed.

We will explore a number of potential blindspots, covering a range of issues that we will share with you as the program comes together. Vigorous networking and meal-time conversations will continue to be a highlight throughout the three days.

Registration closes Sunday, August 27
