Speaker: Dr Chris Green 

The need for teachers in Australia is ever growing, not to mention the need for educators with a strong faith in Christ as Education in our nation continues to shift and change. 
If you have a passion to become a teacher, we’d love for you to come and hear from Dr Chris Green, a senior lecturer in Education and Theology as he begins to unpack this hot topic and explores the Biblical basis of being a teacher in our world today.

Topic: Pastoral Care & Counselling

Speaker: Dr Tom Kimber 

Do you want to turn your heart for those who are hurting into a biblically grounded practice of care?  The areas of Pastoral Care, Chaplaincy & Counselling are similar in their nature of yearning to journey with and care for people in our communities. Dr Tom Kimber, lecturer in Pastoral Theology and holding over 30 years of experience, will be speaking about how these important roles relate to God’s heart, spiritual formation and the wellbeing of humankind.
