What does it mean to be a sexual being?
You can’t avoid this question. Our society is shouting different messages at us every day, and it’s easy to get confused, and discouraged. Many of us feel we don’t have the answers. Maybe it’s easier to avoid the issue altogether?
But there is hope. God’s Word is the one voice that can give clarity in a sexually confused world.
Join us for Ignite Training Conference 2022 as we dive deep into scriptures to see what it means to be human, what it means to be sexual and how “being in Christ” changes everything. We are excited to have Mark Baddeley (Doctrine Lecturer at Queensland Theological College) help unpack this topic for us.
Our conference for 2022 is a day conference on 17 to 21 January from 9am to 3:30pm, with a separate night conference on Wednesday 19 January (more details coming soon).
IGNITE TRAINING CONFERENCE
Ignite Training Conference (ITC) is an annual Bible-teaching and training conference in Brisbane, open to any Bible-believing Christian of any background, age, and ethnicity. ITC belongs to the family of QCCA conferences, is modelled after KCC’s NextGen Conference. The conference is about igniting your head and heart with challenging, Jesus-centred Bible-teaching, singing, prayer, and fellowship, and training you to read and teach the Bible through the lens of the Gospel. ITC also gives you the opportunity to meet and grow with Christians from all over Brisbane for 5 whole days.
Strand groups are the training centre of ITC; strand sessions run for 2 hours each morning. ITC is designed so that ideally, delegates return for at least 3 years to complete each strand in succession. At registration, please select Strand 1 if you’ve never been to ITC (or NTE) before. Strand Groups are about equipping Christians with these tools:
- Strand 1 – Exegesis: Learn how to accurately read, understand and even teach a Bible passage.
- Strand 2 – Biblical Theology: See that the entire storyline of the Bible is about salvation in Jesus, and identify how any given Bible passage fits into this story.
- Strand 3 – Systematic Theology: Work out what the Bible says about a given topic.
- Strand 4 – builds upon and applies the techniques learned in Strands 1-3.
Our morning sessions include singing together, hearing from various Gospel work in the world, a time in God’s Word, and a time of guided personal and small group reflection.
These are run Monday – Thursday afternoons, by people experienced in diverse ministry areas. They provide ministry exposure and help delegates gain practical ministry skills for passing the Gospel on to others.
