  • Where: Riverbank Christian Church, Riverbank Place, Riverside
  • Cost: $10 per person (Lunch included)

Registrations are now closed. Contact eventmanger@vision100.org for more information.

Des Smith is our speaker at the 2017 Ministry Training Conference. Des is Suzie’s husband, Daniel, Samuel and Jemima’s dad, and Lead Pastor at the Christian Reformed Church of Kingston, Tasmania (‘CRCK’). Des studied history and law at the University of Tasmania and practiced as a lawyer for four and a half years before going into full-time ministry. He talks incessantly, and the few things that can shut him up include reading, cooking and looking guiltily at the road bike he always means to ride but never does. Des loves telling people about Jesus and is looking forward to talking (a lot) about him at the Tasmanian Ministry Training Conference.

We're also offering a number of electives, over two sessions, on various areas of church ministry. This year’s electives are as follows:

  • Zeal without Burnout with John de Boer
  • Effective Women’s Ministry with Elizabeth Poland & Vickie Deenick
  • Evangelism in the Workplace with Wilbur Longbottom
  • Preaching & Application with Des Smith
  • Reading the Bible & Praying in Church with Felicity Ogilvie
