A young woman’s sojourn to the Middle East

What could a teacher-slash-barista do in the Middle East? Bec has just spent two years mentoring and training young baristas in a social enterprise that employs people from marginalised backgrounds. Hear her story! (Bec, Interserve)

Creating space, finding life: an Aussie’s journey in mission

An interactive reflection on the mission journey. (Scott, Interserve)

Mission: Saving souls or saving seals?

Is caring for the environment relevant to mission? Or does it just distract us from the important work God has called us to? How we relate to the environment has a profound effect on the people and communities we long to see transformed by encountering Jesus. Caring for creation is life-giving, draws us closer to our Creator and helps us to practically and biblically love our neighbour. Let’s explore together what the Bible has to say about God’s relationship with His creation, and our part in that. (Katherine, Interserve)

Reaching the locally marginalised

Shaping our lives in response to to God’s heart for the poor also requires a local response. Hilde works in St Kilda and Steve works in Perth. Together they’ll share their insights about how we can respond in simple, practical ways locally with marginalised people – distinctive, non-hierarchical, mutually reciprocal and biblical ways. (Steve (TEAR Australia), Hilde (St Kilda Baptist)).

The changing nature of cross-cultural mission

The world’s changing. It’s more interconnected. There’s increasing migration. Short-term mission is on the rise. How can we adapt the ways we serve to more effectively communicate Jesus’ love to those we meet? (Scott, Interserve)

Young people in God’s mission

As young people, we’re often told we don’t measure up. So let’s explore a different narrative. What does God say to those of us under 30(ish)? What strengths does our generation bring as we join God in his mission? What weaknesses do we need to address? Let’s venture together and explore some practical next steps. (Katherine, Interserve)
