The LCANZ’s New Horizons local mission conference program is heading to Sydney this month. The conferences are being staged across Australia and New Zealand, as the teams work together to engage with new arrivals and support congregations wanting to be more embracing of newcomers.
During the last week of August and the first weekends of September, more than 180 pastors, church leaders, active and potential church planters, and others gathered for the New Horizons and SENT conferences.
The 2020 meeting of an international mission consortium will be held in Adelaide. Rev Dr Steen Olsen, former mission director of the SA–NT District, who attended the 2019 event in Wellington, South Africa, said that this represents an exciting opportunity for the LCA/NZ.
