Here is what REFOCUS is going to look like on 11-13 January 2021.
Each day at REFOCUS will begin at 9:30am and include a Bible Talk from our main speaker. We also have a seminar that will focus on a different topic each day that will help encourage and challenge us in thriving as disciples of Jesus in the new year. The day will finish with a time of corporate prayer in your hub location. Each session at REFOCUS will finish at 12:30pm, and we encourage you to move from your hub locations and continue connecting with one another over lunch.
Bible Talks & Speaker:
Our main speaker, Andrew Reid (Principal of the Evangelical Theological College of Asia in Singapore) will open the book of Daniel for us each morning.
We have specifically selected seminar topics that affect all of us as disciples of Jesus in the midst of this new normal. We look forward to guest speakers opening up on the topics of mental health, christian community and disciplines for endurance.
IGNITE TRAINING CONFERENCE
Below are some details about our usual 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.
Workers and others are warmly invited to join us for the Conference night sessions.
