Serve like Christ - serving for the gospel


We're a movement of churches (and the camps and ministries that support them) joined together by our unity in Jesus Christ. 

Our 2024 Regional Summits will bring together leaders from churches, campsites and ministries across regions.

We'll open the Word of God together, we'll hear local stories of how other ministries in your region are engaging in mission, and we'll have the chance to learn together. 

In 2024 these events will have a special focus on growing leaders who serve like Christ.

Come along to connect wth leaders from like-minded churches who are growing leaders, learn from each other, share ideas and grow understanding of what it means to serve for the gospel.  

The workshops will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Biblical Leadership 

  • Training volunteers and leaders

  • Discipling young people

  • Encouraging prayer in our churches

  • Intergenerational Ministry

  • How churches and camps can partner for gospel mission

  • Eldership development 

"Therefore, if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ...

...if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind".

— Philippians 2:1-2
