A conference for pastors and pastoral teams.

This year, we have invited David Benson to present at Pastors Conference. As a former high school teacher, youth worker and pastor, Dave is passionate about pluralistic dialogue and the public expression of Christian faith in a post-Christendom context, toward the flourishing of all. Based in Brisbane, he lectures at Malyon College in the areas of evangelism, apologetics, worldviews, faith–work integration, and practical theology, as well as supporting Christian Heritage College’s Millis Institute for Liberal Arts, in the field of philosophy. Dave is also the director of Traverse (the Malyon centre for bridging church and culture), and co-founder with his wife, Nikki, of the intentional Christian community, Christ’s Pieces. His 2016 Ph.D project, entitled “Schools, Scripture and Secularisation,” considers the telos of competing curricular visions and the place of Sacred Texts in Secular Education.]

Dave will be presenting sessions on engaging Aussie secular culture and the art of theological reflection, all tied in with our theme of Church and Culture.

We encourage all pastors to view the week of May 14th – 20th as a week of professional development so that you have the time and energy to invest in your own growth and learning. As you may be aware, our next assembly will be held on Friday the 18th, and 4D Leadership Conference will be held on Saturday the 19th, so it is highly recommended that someone else preaches on the 20th!

Spouses and carers are welcome to come to the conference too! If you are a carer, please contact us at to receive a discount code for your registration.
