The Australian Baptist movement is spread all over the place, and that’s a good thing! But it’s always made coming together tricky.
In July, for the first time ever, Aussie Baptists from every state and beyond (for Global Interaction workers on location) will connect together for three days to share and learn and pray as one.
It’s called Baptists in Mission Conference, but unlike other conferences it’s completely decentralised. It won’t be broadcast from some central location. Instead, we’ll gather in hubs all over the place (or even zoom in as individuals), and the presenters (quite a line-up!) will present from wherever they are.
We Croweaters will gather at Broadview Baptist and dial in together, as well as separate streams in separate rooms for elective sessions. In fact, we’ll be the first to broadcast with our very own Rev Dr Melinda Cousins leading off the first session.
She’ll be followed by the likes of Mike Frost, Belinda Lakelin, Mark Holt, Ian Dicks & many more. As we said, it’s quite a line-up!
If you can, come and be a part of it, it’s going to be quite a moment. Your grandkids might not ask ‘where were you when our movement first connected live online?’ but hey, you can tell them anyway!
