We cover outcome thinking, healthy church teams and the need for clarity and responsibility. Wrestle with how church leaders need to be regularly challenging the status quo as they seek to reach the lost.

  • A rethink of the roles and responsibilities of church leaders
  • Five key ministry principles that lie behind pretty much everything at the conference

“The Monday of National Conference is excellent. You get key biblical foundations that frame the rest of the conference. It's practical and will have a lasting impact on the way you think about ministry. Wrestle together with the content with your whole church team. If you you have to pick one day to come to National Conference, make it this one.”

What's happening

Got questions?

Definitely, it’s the one day we recommend people don’t miss. If you’re bringing new people along, this is the best day for them. If you haven’t come to Foundations for a number of yours, it’d be good to come back and get a refresher.
If you’ve only come to Foundations 1 previously, don’t miss Foundations 2. Foundations 1 covers ‘why’ and Foundations 2 covers ‘how’.

We want to equip churches of all sizes. Some of the workshops will be run by leaders of small churches.

It’d be ideal to stick together if possible. There will be breakout times where you’ll discuss topics in small groups. It’s a great opportunity to wrestle with the content as a staff team and think about how it applies to your context.

Yes, if you have to!

The conference is designed for paid and unpaid church members.

Yes, the Monday is a key day so we’ve got you covered.
