The 2017 Ministers' and Leaders' Retreat will be held in Sydney from the 10th - 12th June 2017 at the Holiday Inn, Warwick Farm (355 Hume Hwy, Warwick Farm, NSW). Sessions will commence each day at 9:00am and finish at 5:00pm.
Brother Rodney Shaw will be our guest speaker. He is a greatly anointed preacher and Bible teacher. The Executive Board has decided to invite all ministers and pastor-endorsed leaders to attend the three day retreat (Saturday through to Monday).
Registration is $78.00 per day per person (includes GST) and must be paid in advance. Registrations close at midnight sharp on Tuesday 23rd of May. Please note that there is an additional $1.40 fee per transaction.
The registration includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea and use of facilities. Use of the Holiday Inn facility is conditional on each person who attends paying a registration fee as well as advance notice of attendance (by Tuesday 23rd May) for catering purposes.
Brother Shaw will be preaching twice each day along with a number of sessions by other preachers and teachers. There will also be an emphasis on break-out sessions where attendees can choose topics of interest and necessity.
Help desks will be available for those seeking special advice and help on any matters of compliance associated with state laws, registration for working with children, the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission and the Australian Taxation Office. This will include, among other topics, help with income tax exemption, Business Activity Statements, fringe benefits and general church accounting. There will also be a help desk for Office 365. We encourage pastors who are struggling with some of these administrative tasks to invite their church leaders to be in attendance so they can be better equipped with helping in the local church.
