The next era for our children looks to be just as confusing and the question we must ask ourselves is, what legacy are we leaving for them? Foundational pillars that have been in place for centuries have been removed. I’m not against change, but I am against change for change sake. If something needs to be removed and replaced we need to make sure it is an improvement on the past, not less certainty
Welcome to our new website. It's a work in progress and over the next few months we’ll be continuing to develop and expand it. We can’t wait for you to see all the little changes we are working on.
We’re so glad you stopped by and checked out our blog. It’s something we feel will really bless you. In here we’ll be hearing from many of the great speakers from the CRC and beyond, giving great tips and words of wisdom. We’ll be looking at things like training and leadership tips, ministry development keys, missions news and the like. We hope you’ll love reading it as much as we’ll love writing it. If you have any ideas for topics we should cover make sure you let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
Not only are we excited about the launch of our new website, we are also excited about next year. Enrolments for our new 2017 courses have begun. There’s so much excitement around our partnership with Bethel’s WorshipU intensive in Redding California USA, and our missions trip to PNG.
Our intensive camps were a huge success in 2016, and in 2017 we plan to make them bigger and better. Afternoon break out groups will be more focused on steams and we will continue to expand activation in the practical side of ministry, including spiritual giftings and worship.
Again, we've got great speakers from around Australia, not only from the CRC but also from other denominations and movements.
With our courses next year, we offer a range of programs to get you from where you are now, to where God is calling you to. Our focus is on theology, engagement with God, emotional health and spirituality. Our dream is for you to be resourced and equipped to dream, and to know God and experience him in greater ways. But your spirituality can only take you as far as your own maturity and emotional health allows. We all know people in ministry and the world who have not dealt with the hurts and pains of the past, or are blind to wrong mindsets which negatively impact their present and hinders the call of God in their lives.
It's sad to see so many people chained to their past, or their wrong beliefs, instead of the freedom Christ has made possible for each and everyone of us.
Our heart is to see the freedom of God manifest in the people of God, and the release of God's heart, vision, dreams and purpose, for his people and his Church, for glory and honour of Christ and his Kingdom.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
We look forward to seeing you in the new year.
