Church And State Summit 2020 | Auckland

Auckland ~ Tuesday 25 February, 2020

The Church And State Summit is a gathering of world class speakers teaching and inspiring everyday Christians to influence their world for Christ, seeking the Kingdom of God first, and intervening in injustice.

The annual Church And State Summit started in February 2018 in Brisbane, Australia and this year the Church And State ministry is expanding the annual Summit to include tour events in other cities which have been asking for the Summit to be held there. They will be bringing Dr. Michael Brown to Auckland, Melbourne & Sydney in the days before the Summit in Brisbane.

Thinking Matters NZ is proud to work in partnership with both Church and State and LeadershipWorx to bring you the Auckland event.

We live in a lost & hurting world that needs God’s Kingdom to come now. If you are (or want to be) motivated and inspired to be a part of the moral, cultural & spiritual revolution your nation needs, then whatever your age or experience, DON’T MISS THIS EVENT!
