2022 Foundations Pre-Conference

(Formerly Team Pastoring)

Join us to explore with the Reach Australia network the key foundations on which to build a growing ministry at your church. How can we make our churches both missionally effective and strong in discipleship simultaneously?

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is included. This conference will be followed by the Reach Australia National Conference on Tuesday (17) through to Thursday (19).



In 2022, we’re excited to offer three streams that you can choose from for Foundations – catering for those who have been before and those for whom this is their first year. Each stream will give you the chance to learn not only principles but practical examples from the breadth of the Reach Australia Network. You can buy your tickets for Foundations like normal, and then six weeks out from the conference we’ll offer you the chance to choose your stream. If you’re coming along as a team, you don’t all have to go to the same stream – each individual attendee gets the opportunity to choose for themselves which stream they will go to.

Stream #1

If you've never been
to foundations before.

In Stream 1, we’ll be looking at the theological principles that are foundational to a team pastoring & a growth oriented church. We will look at issues around Gospel passion, mission heat, leadership roles & responsibilities, being outcome focused +  specialisation in church life.

Stream #2

If you have been
to stream #1 before.

In Stream 2, we’ll consider the foundational management and practical expression that flows from the principles in Stream 1. We’ll cover what it looks like to achieve clarity right across the church ecosystem by learning about what it takes to bring about effective and lasting change;  accurately analysing what the current state-of-play is as well as how to run effective teams.

Stream #3

If you have been
to streams #1 and #2 before.

In Stream 3, we’ll build upon the learnings and work you have done in Stream 1 and 2. We’ll help you think about what organisational obstacles exist in your church and how to start addressing them together. We’ll do this by understanding the importance of healthy staff teams & effective team meetings; getting clarity on vision and some time to brainstorm together how to make a difference for the kingdom.

Foundations Delegate:

"Foundations Conference really refreshed and energised me in ministry. I’m so glad I went to the conference. I feel as if I’ve seen the tip of the iceberg and dunked my head underwater for a second to see how much there is to this area of ministry."
