Session 3

Wednesday 18th October: 9:15am – 10:15am

Founder & President, Empart

Workshop Stream:

Multiplication and Movement are interconnected.  However, in the West, due to heavy legal compliance and risk management, the focus and priority has heavily shifted towards building risk-free organisations. While this was greatly needed, I feel the pendulum has swung too far from one extreme to the other. As a result, we have lost innovation, pioneering, creativity and apostolic and entrepreneurial leaders who have been forced to become managerial leaders. As a result, we have great organisations but lack the sweeping social and spiritual impact and transformation that can only be achieved through a movement. So, to be effective in leading a movement, one needs to understand the differences between organisation and movement.

The reality is that momentum and order can clash, but, if momentum is not ordered properly, it can cause major havoc and possible damage; and order will not necessarily create momentum. 

Creating a healthy and growing movement (with structure) requires more than just new organisational design. It will take rethinking of the nature and the structure of organisations entirely. In this session we will look at some of the key concepts and principles around this.

Power to Change, Australia - Church Movements. Director Partnerships & SHIFTm2M. Regional Leader Nth America Oceania - Church Movements (Cru/Campus Crusade for Christ)

Workshop Stream:

Sometimes the never ending demands of ministry feels like a merry-go-round of demands and activities. Although we are constantly moving we can sense we are not journeying far and disciplemaking and multiplication can seem completely out of reach. How do we lead in such a way that the work of ministry can result in the outcomes of disciplemaking movements and multiplication? How do we ensure that the main thing is realigned as the main thing in continuing Jesus mission? This workshop will provide a Biblical framework from the model of Jesus that is simple, transferable, and rigorous and effective in empowering leaders wanting to make that shift from ministry to movements.

Lead Pastor Suncoast Church & Impact Church Canberra.

Workshop Stream:

There was a time when the Christian faith was compelling, engaging, and irresistible. In fact, there was a time when the Church was so irresistible, that it literally changed the world. Today, not so much. Studies show that while most Australians are okay with Jesus, they are hesitant of the Church, and wary of church people. So how do we get back to an irresistible model of Church? This practical session is for anyone who cares deeply about the future of the Church in Australia.

To see churches planted across Australia, we will need flexible models where church planters exercise their gifts both in the local church as well as the world around them. The “Portfolio Life” enables leaders to use their gifts to impact more than one sphere of influence by juggling more than one world.

Come and hear how your gifts can be a blessing to many more people you have ever thought of.

Our presenter, Markus Koch, leads a portfolio life! Besides planting and leading Brighton Beach Church, he also manages his corporate advisory firm which focusses on working with founders and CEO’s. Markus is also a director of Exponential.

Convoy of Hope Regional Director, Oceania

Workshop Stream:

The harvest is flourishing! The Bible says ‘workers are few’ and the answer is prayer. Together we will go on a journey of discussing the new era we have entered to reaching a world that is becoming increasingly disinterested in the Church but still curious about Jesus. There is a beauty in praying vulnerable prayers that are open to the leading of Holy Spirit as we see a reaping of the harvest to the glory of Jesus.

World Zone Leader for Dynamic Church Planting International Asia South East Pacific

Workshop Stream:

One of the concepts DCPI utilises is a Mother-Daughter approach to the planting of new churches for Christ. God wants new churches, whether they come intentionally or unintentionally. First, we will explore the reasons for unintentional Church Planting as well as the pain that may sometimes occur as a result. This leads to considerations given to a more intentional approach to church planting as well as exploring some alternative models.
