Jesus entrusted the church (that is us!) with the Great Commission to go into ALL the world preaching, teaching and making disciples â€“ both those across the street and those across the seas.
Come join us at Mission Matters to be ... encouraged, envisioned and equipped to help complete that commission cross-culturally, both at home and abroad.
This event is a great opportunity to:
Main speaker sessions, workshops, seminars, personal reflection times, fellowshipping with other people who are also journeying with Christ.
Mountaintop experience at the beautiful surrounds of Mt Tamborine; on site accommodation or camping style; enjoy Godâ€™s nature at its best.
Be encouraged and challenged by the main session speakers plus many other missionaries leading interactive elective workshops and seminars.
Many mission agencies and Bible colleges will be there to journey with you to help you make the most of this amazing opportunity by exploring the scope of what God is doing in the world.

Originally a school teacher from Queensland, Chris felt called to pursue full-time ministry 17 years ago. In 2005, he and his wife Judy moved their young family to Melbourne for theological training. It was during this time, that they felt called to serve cross-culturally in mission and in mid-2008 they departed Australia to help with church planting in Eastern Europe. For the next 8 years, their ministry focused primarily on bible teaching, discipling, counselling and community outreach. In this time, it was a joy for them to see a new Baptist church established in the city of Opole, Poland.
Early last year, Chris and Judy felt God calling them out of this work and they arrived back in Australia last December. Since then, they have been visiting family, friends and supporters while they prayerfully investigate their next steps in ministry.
