We're so excited to be continuing our journey as leaders together in 2023 - because there's always more to learn, and plenty of room to grow!
This year our focus will be on:
'Building Leaders in Adversity'
We all know that there's never a perfect time to build leaders - so how do we do it when things are hard? How do we build leaders that will ALSO endure when things are hard?
We'll be learning things that will be helpful for people at ALL leadership levels.
Top leader level. Frontline leaders. Volunteers. Staff. Churches. Schools. Christian environments & non-christian environments.
HUSTLE is for every leader.
Give it to me straight.

UGH, ANOTHER CONFERENCE?
Here's why HUSTLE.
As leaders of Christian ministry, we face common problems. Not enough leaders, not enough time, too much stress and feeling like you don’t really know how to grow this ministry and the Kingdom. You want to, but you don’t know where to start, how to get better and you’re feeling downright exhausted. Sometimes we get to the point where all we can muster is ‘getting it done’ when we’d love to be able to go deep in the Bible and raise strong, passionate and capable leaders.
Even though this can leave us frustrated, trapped or feeling like giving up - we don’t need to stay in this place. We can grow in our leadership ourselves and help our teams to grow as well.
Hustle Conference is our chance to learn together and continue to grow in leadership. It’s a chance to set aside some time to stop and think about leadership things, to read bible things and to hear from people who have worked hard on making these two things sing sweet music together.
At the risk of filthy self-promotion, I’ve literally read hundreds of leadership books and have gone on to write two books on leadership and leadership development, as well as a book on the theology of the incarnation. I’m into both theology AND leadership, and have had leaders running large areas of ministry responsibility across numerous ministry areas! I know you can do this too and am excited to share things with you to help you on your way.
So, if you’re a leader in Christian ministry, be it church based, school based, university based, hospital based… and you want to learn how to develop your leadership in a biblically faithful way, then this is the conference for you! Come along and we’ll get you thinking, developing and understanding so that you can lead, train, serve and not suck. :)
Looking forward to seeing you there!
WHO'LL BE TEACHING US?
And why should I listen to them?
Tim Clemens is the Senior Pastor of Grace City, an Anglican church in Waterloo. Tim led the small team that planted Grace City in 2015, and by God's grace they have seen strong gospel growth since that time. Over 70 people have become Christians, and many more at Grace City are pursuing maturity in Christ together.
Tim is married to Emma and they have two young children. When he's not spending time with family or people from church, you will most likely find Tim surfing down at Maroubra Beach. Tim's dream is to go surfing with his kids, and so he is eagerly anticipating the day that they are old enough to swim on their own.
Prior to graduating from Moore College and starting Grace City, Tim worked full time as a High School SRE teacher. During that time, he wrote and self-published an SRE curriculum, which was later published by CEP as The Jesus Foundation Series.
Craig Hamilton became a Christian in junior high school and thinks Jesus is easily the most impressive person he has ever met.
Craig graduated from Moore Theological College in 2007 and started serving as a youth minister with the people at Glenmore Park Anglican. He is passionate about serving alongside and equipping teams, and at Glenmore Park he oversaw leadership development, small groups, welcoming & integration, children, youth and young adult ministries.
Craig is currently serving as the Senior Minister at Pitt Town Anglican Church. Along with his wife, and a whole heap of people, he hopes to reach the community with the message of Jesus.
Craig is gifted with the ability to synthesise complex truths and loves helping pastors grow in their leadership and theology.
We asked Craig what he most enjoys doing on his day off and he said he loves to eat KFC and wear colourful sneakers.
Phillip Jensen’s varied ministry continues to have lasting impact on countless individuals and through major organisations in Australia and worldwide. Since 1975 Phillip has pioneered many vibrant ministries while serving thousands in the role of pastor and teacher. To date these ministries have been in the areas of training, university student work, church planting and publishing of Christian resources. Phillip is married to Helen. They currently live in Sydney and have three adult children and thirteen grandchildren.
In December 2014 Phillip resigned from parish ministry to commence work with Two Ways Ministries which is based at Moore Theological College.
Phillip currently accepts many invitations to preach on Sundays and to speak at national and international conferences (like HUSTLE!) where he continues to model preaching the gospel by teaching the Bible.

HOW DO I GET THERE?
Where we're going, we still need roads...

If you’re planning on driving, there is parking onsite and also in the surrounding streets.
WHAT IF I CAN'T COME?
If something happens in your life that stops you from being there in person, simply contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of you. We don’t want anyone to miss out if they don’t have to, but we also know that sometimes it just can’t happen. 🙂
