Register for this years’ Annual Preachers’ Conference; a training conference on preaching God’s word to minds hearts, wills and lives. This will be a hub-based event where individuals can gather at local hubs for group discussions and connect to the main sessions via live stream. Hubs will be located in Parkville (Ridley College), Berwick, Geelong, Bendigo, Bathurst, Armidale, Brisbane, Toowoomba, and Darwin. If you are unable to attend in person or prefer to attend online, an individual live-streaming option is also available.

The Book of Jeremiah is very relevant for our times, but few of us would feel confident to preach a series on this long Old Testament book. Be trained and inspired to preach on the book of Jeremiah.

Jill Firth lectures in Old Testament at Ridley and is an expert on Jeremiah. Her training will be is on how to prepare for preaching this book. Rev Tim Johnson is a church pastor and will preach three expository sermons from the book. There will be an extended opportunity for discussion of these sermons and question times. In groups, we will also workshop a passage of Jeremiah for the purpose of preaching it. These will be facilitated by experienced preachers. A highlight of our Annual Preacher’s Conference is the address by well-known preacher Mike Raiter on ’the Personal Life of the Preacher’ – this year on the topic of the ‘Weeping Preacher’. You don’t want to miss this conference.
