We are all full-time gospel ministers, regardless of whether or not we are being paid for the privledge. The Challenge Conference is a time for all of us as gospel ministers to think through and put into action, the most effective, fruitful and godly way to be serving.

Challenge Conference’s aim is too raise up and support upcoming new leaders (whether into fulltime paid ministry, or into unpaid ministry) and encourage and equip current leaders (elders, deacons, overseers, ministry leaders) to keep going and keep growing in their various ministries (in church and in life). This is the challenge we want to put forward.

If you are travelling in from outside of Hobart and need help organising accommodation, or if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to email our Event Manager, Jess Prins, at eventmanager@vision100.org.

Challenge Conference is not providing child care this year, however please check with your local church minister as they may be able to help you with child care options. You are welcome to bring babies along to the conference.
