Tasmanian Church Planting Conference

Date: October 23, 2019

Tasmanian Church Planting Conference

Oct 23 2019 – 4:00pm – 9:00pm
A conference for growing healthy Churches and planting healthy Churches.

The annual Tasmanian Church Planting Conference is a time to join with men and women from across Tasmania who desire to see more gospel-centred churches established across the state.
In 2019 we will be looking at ‘Overcoming Challenges and Blockages’

We want to see God’s kingdom grow across Australia. But, how do we do it? Where do we start? What is the most effective way to plant a church in this current cultural environment? What are the key things that block church plants from starting and surviving?

This year’s Tasmanian Church Planting Conference seeks to answers all these questions and equip you and your church to move forward in church planting. We will be pulling together resources and tried and tested ideas to give you the practical tools and skills that you need. Many of these tools and insights will also have relevance to existing ministries.

Derek Hanna and Scott Sanders offer a wealth of experience and will share with us lessons learnt from church planting from all over Australia and provide us with resources that have been pulled together in order to see God’s kingdom grow across Australia.

There will also be electives available on a range of different topics

When: 4-9:00pm 23rd October 2019

Where: Christian Reformed Church of Kingston (17 Denison St, Kingston)

Cost: $55
