2024 Annual Conference

13-14 August

Guard your heart

growing in Christ-like character

PGP 2024 Annual Conference

North Beach Baptist Church • 10 Groat St

Character is supreme. God emphasises his delight in the transformation of his people into the image of Christ, and determination to use everything to bring it about. And Christian leaders must be of sound character. We see the devastating impact of leaders with flawed character, both in the church and beyond.

At this year's conference our focus will be on developing and protecting Christ-like character, especially in the stresses and strains of gospel ministry. We want to learn from God's word and each other how to guard our hearts, so that we can guard the gospel and God's sheep.

Craig Tucker

Craig is the lead Pastor of Scot's church, in the heart of Sydney CBD. He was converted as a uni student, and has -planted and pastored churches among battlers, yuppies and urbanites.

Craig will open the Bible with us, to show us how God grows us in character, by his grace. Leveraging his theological convictions and personal experience, his 3 keynote talks will bring to light the crucial importance of the character of gospel workers, and God's ways to grow.

Caroline Spencer

Caroline works in church pastoral ministry, and with City Bible Forum. She has contributed to Moore College's training of ministers in the area of Intentional Ministry Reflection, and is active in Pastoral Supervision.

Caroline will present a model for Intentional Ministry Reflection, a tool that helps us intentionally address character issues in a fruitful way.
