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?
Dominic Steele has been senior pastor of Village Church, Annandale for twenty years. Dominic founded Christians in the Media and anchors the weekly Australian pastor’s vodcast The Pastor’s Heart.
He is the author and presenter of the Evangelistic course Introducing God.
Before working in ministry Dominic was a radio journalist/presenter on radio stations 2UE, 2GB, 2WS and 2CH. Dominic lives and rides his motor scooter around the inner west of Sydney - wearing his bright orange helmet. He is married to Catherine and has three adult children.
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.
Kanishka Raffel is the Archbishop of Sydney.
Kanishka was born in London to Sri Lankan parents and was raised as a Buddhist. While studying law at Sydney University a friend gave him a copy of The Gospel according to John and he subsequently became a Christian.
Kanishka Raffel was ordained deacon in 1996 in Sydney and priest in 1996 in Canberra-Goulburn. He served at St. Matthew’s, Wanniassa (Canberra-Goulburn) before going west to Perth where he served as Rector of St. Matthew’s in Shenton Park.
In 2016 he commenced as Dean of Sydney, ministering to the regular congregations of St. Andrews Cathedral and serving the broader church and society through various civic and ceremonial functions. Now, as the Archbishop, Kanishka sees the immediate priorities for the Sydney diocese as strengthening local churches, discipling the next generation, and raising up and training ministers of the gospel.
Kanishka is married to Cailey and they have two daughters.
We asked Kanishka what he wanted to be when he grew up. He told us he wanted to be a Safari Park Ranger.
