Over the last few years the New Horizons, SENT and Cross-Cultural Ministry Conferences, together with associated training events and resources, have started to shape local congregations and their leaders so that they are feeling more supported for local mission. This has been accompanied by formal and informal learning networks, including those in the intersection between cross-cultural ministry and local (congregation-based) church planting.

The aim of New and Renewing Churches has been to assist in forming healthy, mission shaped, multiplying and sending congregations. Increasingly we are seeing that these must also be multi-ethnic.

With this in mind, we are holding New Horizons: Bridging cultures with the gospel in 2021, this is a collaboration between Cross-Cultural Ministry and New and Renewing Churches and the conference will aim to:

  • build capacity for meaningful cross-cultural engagement at the local (congregational) level, and
  • shape and support congregations and leaderships for multi-ethnic/cross-cultural mission and ministry.

New Horizons: bridging cultures with the gospel

We are taking this event on the road!

Recent travel restrictions have made it difficult to travel across borders, so we have decided to bring this wonderful event to each of the districts of the LCA. The SA-NT and NSW-ACT events were a great success and we are now excited to move on towards Vic-Tas.

This joint conference from the New and Renewing Churches and Cross-Cultural Ministry Departments aims to provide support to leaders and congregations as they respond to new opportunities for mission and ministry. It also aims to assist in building the capacity of LCA/NZ members to meaningfully engage with people of other cultural backgrounds.

PAST EVENTS.

New Horizons 2019

New Horizons 2019 was a blessing to many. The theme for 2019 was much needed and coincided with the release of a new book and associated video resources by Noel Due and Steen Olsen, called Spirit Filled: Normal Christian Living. The focus was on missional leadership with particular reference to the person and work of the Spirit.

SENT Conference 2019

SENT conferences bring together pastors, congregational members, church planters and others keen to explore the nature of evangelism, church planting and missional leadership in the LCA/NZ. SENT 2019 focused on the mission of the church, with particular reference to the person and work of the Spirit. This theme tied in with the release of the book and associated video resources by Noel Due and Steen Olsen called Spirit Filled: Normal Christian Living. SENT was offered in Adelaide and Brisbane in 2019.
