Preaching to the Heart

Annual Preachers' Conference

The Annual Preachers’ Conference is designed to train you in preaching God’s word to the mind, heart, and will of members of your congregation. The theme for the conference is Preaching to the Heart with our trainer Andrew Katay. Andrew leads City to City Australia and is the Rector of Christ Church Inner West in Sydney. The conference will help you grow and develop your preaching of God’s word as you seek to engage your listeners’ minds, hearts, and wills.

The 2022 Ridley Preachers’ Conference will be held on campus at Ridley College, as well as at a number of hubs around the country (TBC). The hubs will be facilitated by experienced preachers, and will give you the opportunity to work with others in small groups. There will also be the option to participate in the conference online if you cannot attend in person.

Main Speaker


Rev'd Andrew Katay

Andrew currently serves as Senior Minister of Christ Church Inner West in Sydney, as well as CEO of City to City Australia. He completed his DMin with a Major Project on preaching to the heart. He wishes both his preaching and his golf would improve.
