Summit is the peak annual gathering of CCVT churches, agencies, and members to be inspired and trained, to participate in the AGM, and to connect with each other. It is held in May each year, in different locations, and attendance is encouraged by all leaders in our churches and agencies.
‘Lift’ Summit 2023
2023 promises to be an exciting year of advance in our churches. More baptisms, the development of new leaders, and grants to support new ministries and churches, are just some of the evident markers of kingdom growth. This is great to see as we continue working collaboratively on activating and furthering our mission to make more disciples of Christ.
This years ‘Lift’ Summit on May 17th and 18th is at Berwick Church of Christ with an optional forum on May 19 with John Lamerton (EO of Global Mission Partners). It sees us build on the development of our personal leadership skills, spiritual impact, and systems thinking needed to maximise our impact. While sensitivity is needed regarding personal resilience and post-COVID challenges, small steps in multiple aspects of church life will reap big dividends!
We are pleased, this year, to welcome Joel Chelliah as our special guest. While we will enjoy a range of local speakers, stories, and workshops, we will also be hearing from an experienced practitioner who, with his wife Sharon and their dedicated team, has seen the development of a significant multi-site church in Perth. Joel is a gifted leader, communicator and author, and has overseen churches large and small in his 10-year role as State President of the Australian Christian Churches, where he also serves as a National Executive member.
This year’s Summit will reinvigorate us through prayer, networking, and inspiration, ‘lifting’ us with the energy and passion that will optimise the call and cause of Jesus.
We would love to see your whole team register as we explore the empowerment of leaders guided by the Spirit to shape effective churches. We will again sponsor Tasmanian delegates and regional teams seeking assistance via the CCVT office. We will also again have a special program for Generations leaders, including worship, prayer, equipping, networking, and dinner.
Let’s celebrate together what it is that God is stirring in our midst as a Churches of Christ family.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
