- Ministered to, as leaders, by God's word - so we'll have an local deliver a Bible talk specifically for us as church leaders;
- Equipped to deal with today's pastoral issues - so we'll have some training from a recognised expert in a contemporary ministry area;
- Supported - so we can pray with and for each other, capitalise off each other's strengths and opportunities, and work together to grow God's kingdom. So we'll have extended times of informal prayer and fellowship.
With 2017 celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Kamal Weerakoon (TOG) will be giving a talk on what it means to be confessional and contemporary today. Darren Middleton (North Geelong Presbyterian) will share his experience of how being vigorously reformed has strengthened his ministry at North Geelong. There will also be a panel discussion by local ministers on what Reformed ministry looks like today and much more!

Asides from the day, tickets also cover lunch, morning and afternoon tea, a book from Banner of Truth and an audio CD from the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals.
Thinking of God is an interdenominational fellowship of evangelical Christians who are committed to the fundamental authority of the Bible as the Word of God, and who hold to the truths of Reformed Christianity, as expressed in key confessions such as the Thirty-Nine Articles, the Westminster Confession, the 1689 Baptist Confession, and the Savoy Declaration. We believe that the great ecumenical creeds of the Church, and the teachings common to the historic confessions and catechisms of the Reformation, best summarise the key teachings of Christianity.
