“If the sense that I picked up today tells me a little bit about your Churches: if the depth of engagement I saw,if the strength of the questions, if the generational diversity that I see represented here today tells me something of the Churches of South Australia then, you are in good health"

Leadership can be over-glorified. Conferences, books or speakers can suggest the success of an organisation or team depends on the leader. History too makes its monuments for leaders, the followers are forgotten. Yet clearly without ‘followers’, a leader is not a leader. Certainly in the Church, success is not secured by its leadership. This Movement belongs to God and leaders are simply those who have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. This is why 4D2013 is a leadership conference focussed on following.
Our keynote speaker Mark Wilson is a visionary leader and excellent communicator. As a Pastor and Director of Ministries for the Baptist Churches in Western Australia, he understands the opportunities and demands of leading in the movement of God. Mark will help us follow what God is doing in our world and as leaders show others how to follow.
The Conference program includes celebrating 150 years of South Australian Baptist Churches belonging together in God’s Movement. God in His grace has used our Churches to establish His work and influence our state. This session will also invite our movement of Churches into growing meaningful, respectful relationships with Indigenous Australians.
Afternoon Electives include a range of options to appeal to the breadth of leaders 4D Conference seeks to encourage and equip. God is Moving in His people and His world. This year’s 4D conference gathers leaders from across our Churches to best lead God’s people in God’s movement. Register now for “Movement” 4D2013.
