'Build up – Step Up' Developing Leaders Conference


The Developing Leaders Conference is for aspiring and developing leaders who believe that they are called to take up leadership in Christian Education.

Our 2017 Developing Leaders Conference equips the next generation of leaders by unpacking what it means, and what it takes, to lead in Christian Education in the future. This year’s conference begins by working to build up leaders by providing them with a strong understanding of the biblical foundations of leadership supported by a range of practical tools for leadership.
To encourage and inspire future leaders, to answer the call and step up as Gospel centred leaders in the prevailing cultural context, participants will be provided with an opportunity to explore how to best respond to the challenges of leadership, as they seek to take on positions of responsibility, grow in capacity and serve faithfully in Christian Education.

Join us as we explore topics like:

  • A Biblical foundation of leadership
  • The breadth of leadership - Some tools for the toolbox
  • Our cultural context and the impact on leadership
  • Leading in your cultural moment
  • Leading without a title and the challenges of leadership

Don’t miss out as we hear from speakers including Dr Rod Thompson, Justin Cook and the Hon Mr Terry Mills, as we explore the call of leadership.
