Guest Keynote Presenters
We have some excellent trainers with a significant amount of cumulative church planting experience coming for the Church Planting Summit:
Peter has facilitated church planting movements in Australia and Europe and has been actively involved in training for church planting movements right around the world. The depth of his missional theology and the breadth of his church planting experience makes his training an opportunity that you do not want to miss. Check Peter's New Church Life website for a picture of what Peter's resources can offer you and your leadership team.
Grant is a church consultant for the MOVE Network which trains Christians and churches to become disciple-making and church-planting movements. Grant has many years of experience as a youth pastor, church planter and pastoral leader of a large established church. His personal experience in planting churches and training leaders to grow healthy churches will be valuable for your team.
Wayne is the Director of the Centre for Church Planting for the South Pacific Division. He planted the Central Coast Community Church and he has a passion for reaching people who would not normally walk into a church. Read about the mission story of how Wayne's church reached a drug addict and feeds disadvantaged students at a nearby public high school.
Are you curious about what missional initiatives are working effectively here in Western Australia? Your team will get to hear the stories and then reflect on how they could be applied in your situation. You can also provide valuable feedback to the speakers. You might even want to share your own story and get constructive insight and feedback from the group of church planters!
Who would be interested?
If you have a team of people in your church or circle of influence who have a passion for planting churches, then this will definitely be the training and equipping event for them. This includes a vision for developing multiple worship services in your current location or other campuses, starting a house church network that is directly associated with your local church and starting new missional groups in your community.
While the adults are taking part in the training aspects of the Summit, we have a special program available just for kids 3 - 12 years old and invite you to bring your kids along! Through creative prayer, Bible exploration, singing, stories and more, children will discover more about Jesus and how to partner with Him in exciting mission adventures. Don't forget to register your children for the kids program on your registration form. Please note: Children below 3 are also welcome, but they will need to be accompanied by a parent at all times.
