Our conferences and events are intended to help us catch a vision for God’s plan for the church, take steps in becoming more welcoming, and receive inspiration and ideas from local churches that are unfolding God’s glorious vision in practical ways.

Riding the Waves of Change explores how

  • churches have attempted to ride the waves since WWII
  • to move churches struggling with social change and decline into an effective missional mode
  • to assess a congregation’s willingness/likelihood of successful missional change
  • leaders create a holding space through liminal movement.

New Horizons 2021

New Horizons – Bridging cultures with the gospel

Our third and final conference for 2021 was held in September and wow what a turn out it was! We had over 50 delegates joining us for the online event and we would like to thank all those who attend. This joint conference from the New and Renewing Churches and Cross-Cultural Ministry departments aimed to provide support to leaders and congregations as they respond to new opportunities for mission and ministry. It also assisted in building the capacity of LCANZ members to meaningfully engage with people of other cultural backgrounds.

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.

You can find the book Spirit Filled: Normal Christian Living in our store.
