Pastors Gathering 2021

Pastors Gathering is a 2-day retreat designed to help you hit reset. We will encourage and inspire one another as we share stories, listen, pray and worship together, enjoy good food and fun activities in the McLaren Vale region. 
.
Nestled amongst gum trees, vineyards and a beautiful lake, Serafino is the perfect spot for you to get away from it all and feel refreshed. Plus it’s not too far to walk to town for a morning brew. We hope you and your pastoral team will be able to join us!
Registrations close Wednesday 28th July

Speaker: Dr Brian Harris

Director, AVENIR Leadership Institute

Dr Brian Harris is a sought out speaker, teacher, leader and writer. A widely respected theologian, after 17 years as principal of Perth’s Vose Seminary, in 2021 he became the founding director of the AVENIR Leadership Institute, an initiative of the Carey Group committed to fostering leaders who will make a positive impact on the world. While leading the Institute, Brian continues to do some part time teaching at the Vose Campus of Morling College, is a Director of the Australian College of Theology and a Distinguished International Visiting Scholar of Spurgeon’s College, London. He has also twice served as a visiting Professor of Religion at Carson Newman University in the USA.

Brian is the author of 6 books and the co-editor of a 7th, and has published widely – both in academic journals and in more popular publications. His book, The Tortoise Usually Wins: Biblical Reflections on Quiet Leadership (Paternoster, 2013) continues to empower people who don’t naturally see themselves as leaders, while The Big Picture: Building Blocks of a Christian World View (Paternoster, 2015) is often used by theological colleges introducing students to the study of theology or Christian World View, as well as serving as the basis for professional development days in many Christian schools around Australia. His most recent book, Why Christianity is Probably True (Paternoster, 2020) helps shift the tone of the discussion about faith, and has been noted for its style which is winsome and disarming while being quietly persuasive.
