Winter Conference WA
Date: 2:00pm, 2 July 2018 - 11:00am, 6 July 2018
Get pumped for Winter Conference, the BIGGEST event in our Power to Change annual calendar!
Held in idyllic, beachside Bussleton, Winter Conference is an opportunity for WA uni students (and young adults) to gather for five days of community, fun, practical training, worship, Settlers of Catan, and exploring the Bible with our international guest speaker, Vice President of TTI Ministries: Benjamin T Cornish.
Winter Conference is warmly welcoming of international students, uni alumni and those who don't have a faith background at all. So come join us at the beach for Winter Conference!
Ben Cornish is a former Power to Change Campus Team Leader (Griffith Uni, Brisbane). He holds a B.A. in History from the University of Minnesota (2009), a Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2016), and is now pursuing a Ph.D from Southern Seminary.
Ben writes and teaches courses in the Bible, theology, and apologetics for Christian leaders from all around the world. Ben has done missionary work on five continents including fourteen countries and more than 20 international cities. Winter conference will be his debut in Perth.
Ben met his wife Emily through Power to Change in 2009 and they were married in 2012. They are members at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Kentucky.
You can find out more about Ben's ministry at the Teaching Truth International website.
We get to come together and worship God through music a couple times a day and even have a night of Praise and Worship led by our worship band!
While we want everyone to gather together to learn from the Bible, we also want you to get time alone to read the Bible, talk to God, and process anything you may be learning.
In the evenings there will be time to play games, have a chat, do crafts, and have fun with the new people you are meeting!
We get to hear and learn from our main speaker Ben Cornish. He will be teaching from the Bible!
There will be multiple opportunities to break out into sessions to learn about God, be trained in how to talk to people about Jesus, or be part of leading the movement at your campus!
Power to Change wants the Gospel to be made known not only on university campuses in Australia, but all over the world. With this goal in mind, we'll get to hear about the places we can go overseas for a summer or longer to share our faith with others.
Teaching and training can be fun, but we like to break it up a bit and have fun with new and old friends. Sport, games, coffee, rest, and other activities are what students typically find themselves doing during thier free time.
Bond with people from your own campus or area! Campus time is important to us because it encourages us to continue pursuing God and community even when conference is over.
Winter Conference is a place for both local Australian and International students to come together to connect with Jesus and each other. There will be arrangements made for our friends whose first language is not English to experience the same teaching and training everyone is engaging with. There will be lots of opportunities to experience community with other international students!
