The LCAQD Ministry Summit 2022 is for anyone serving within the Lutheran Church Queensland district: paid or volunteer. If you have a volunteer role within an LCAQD congregation, or are an LYQ leader, we would love to see you there!
In 2019 a group of us from the LCAQD office hosted our first Ministry Summit. We tested our vision of being ‘better together’ by gathering ministry and service people from all departments of the LCAQD to explore what might be possible. Those who attended needed no convincing: they came with a shared vision – seeing ourselves as one church – better together as we share God’s love in our various contexts.
In 2022 we build on that foundation as we gather at Brisbane Technology Park Conference Centre around the theme: ‘Loving our neighbours together.’ So what can you expect from the day?
- Bishop Mark Vainikka will invite us to keep going from where we left off at Navigating Our Future Together in March this year, through his next keynote address.
- After morning tea you’ll choose from a range of electives all designed to help build skills and capacity for finding our way forward together. There will be something to meet you where you are at.
- We’ll share stories about how LCAQD congregations and agencies are already moving forward together.
- Then after lunch you’ll gather in your geographical areas to apply what you’ve learned in the electives as well as the ideas you already had for the blessing of your local communities. For this reason we recommend that more than one person per congregation or agency attends if possible.
