Lessons from the global church: Renewing mission, community & discipleship
Public Lecture with Rev Dr Graham Hill (Christchurch)

While every statistic available today shows the church in the West is in multi-generational decline, the opposite is true almost everywhere else. Before long, more than 80% of Christians will live outside the West.

The churches of these cultures have seen extraordinary (and sustained) growth for decades. Places like Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Finally, immigrant (diaspora) Christian communities are also going through a time of growth and revitalisation.

In this seminar with Rev Dr Graham Hill from Morling College, you'll discover how insights from churches in these cultures can help renew your faith, ministry, and church. They have the power to invest your mission, worship, and discipleship with new vibrancy.

For those unable to make it to either of these evenings, the Auckland seminar will be videoed and available on the Laidlaw website.

Don’t miss what promises to be an interesting and informative public lecture!
