The Tertiary Student Christian Fellowship’s graduate ministry is organizing their National Conference this year on Christ and the workplace. With a vision to seeing godly people who are willing to bring their faith and professional lives together, Catalyst are hosting a compelling program of speakers, worship and workshops to nurture and encourage Christians to be better disciples of Christ in the workplace.
The conference will be held at Laidlaw College in Henderson, Auckland, beginning on the 3rd of September and ending on the 5th. Catalyst have organized some amazing speakers from a broad range of specialized fields and working environments, from architecture, health care, law, business, farming, town planning and more. Speakers include Andrew Thorburn (CEO of the BNZ bank), Andrew Becroft (Principal Youth Court Judge), Chris Clarke (CEO of World Vision NZ), Peter Thirkell (professor of Marketing at Victoria University), and Paul Windsor (associate director of Langham Preaching).
The conference will offer a unique opportunity to develop networks with colleagues gathered from around New Zealand and deepen professional, intellectual, and spiritual relationships. Catalyst hopes that participants will be able to leave able to:
• communicate the gospel in word and deed
• translate the Bible’s story into their profession
• live for Christ on Monday as much as Sunday
• are participants with God in his global mission
