June 28-30, Pascoe Park

This leadership convention is for our local church leaders and future leaders

How can we be active, purposeful, healthy disciples and leaders in a world increasingly prone to fatigue? Taking on any role at church can feel fraught with overwhelm, conflict with fellow leaders, burn-out or futility. Jesus promised that his yoke would be easy, so what’s going on? If you are feeling this way or are leading others who are struggling to find time and energy to engage with church, this convention is for you. Through a deep dive into Jesus’ method of ministry and a range of workshops holding all sorts of answers to the problems we’re collectively and individually facing, this weekend will uplift, equip, inspire and energise you.
