Churches are communities; gospel families. Church families that are both drawn together and shaped by our relational God. A God who has chosen to be in relationship with us. 

Coming up, across the country, we have a series of Regional Summits that seek to draw church, ministry, and campsite leaders from the CCCNZ/Open Brethren heritage movement together to build relationships and support leaders in their role of training both the current and next generation of church/ministry leaders.

The workshops will cover a variety of ministry leadership contexts including; Biblical Leadership Training, Youth, Prayer, Children and Families, Camping, Eldership, and more. We will have the opportunity to hear stories of how other ministries in your region are engaging in mission.


A full day of opportunities and workshops that seeks to…

  • Engage ministry teams and to learn and grow together
  • Connect ministry leaders with each other for mutual support and relationship
  • Inspire ministry leaders to identify next steps in current and future leadership and ministry development
  • Interactive workshops that aim at grassroots, practical ministry level


An opportunity for local CCCNZ/Open Brethren heritage churches/ministries to encourage, support and send…

  • Ministry leaders
  • Elders
  • Camp staff
  • Small group leaders
  • Potential next-generation leaders
  • Key volunteer leaders

Whether it has been in serving as a pastor over the last 23 years in two quite different locations (one regional, the other central city) or on the personal front (readjusting to life as a new grandfather in the last two years), relationships are at the very heart of the Christian faith. I would love to explore this more with you as we look at John 17 together at the Auckland Regional Summit.


My name is Lyndon and I’ve been serving as the Youth and Families Pastor at Te Awamutu Bible Chapel since the start of 2019. I’m married to Abi and we have two children, Cece and Seth. Abi and I grew up in Auckland, then spent three years in Sydney while I completed my theological studies, and we are now loving serving in the mighty Waikato in Te Awamutu.


Tim and his family are part of the team bringing the good news of Jesus to Selwyn through the new Springs Community Church. He's worked with TSCF student mission for many years, helping reach students for Christ and change students for life. He loves to ski in winter and watch the BlackCaps at any time of year. On September 24 he'll take us into John 17 to explore growing the relational heart of church life.


Darryl has been the pastor of The Anchor Church since immigrating from Adelaide with his family in 2010. Darryl is married to Stella, and they have four adult children. Darryl has served in a variety of roles, including working for MMM Australia, and as Community and Outreach Pastor at Woodcroft Christian Centre. Darryl has a keen interest in Christian leadership development and teaching people about Christ. In his spare time, he enjoys AFL, cricket, tramping and spending time with his family.
