Engage Conference 2018

If you want inspiration and equipping for your key leaders and members for their mission – this is it!

What’s unique about this conference?

  • It’s a national conference that is about one topic: Outreach in NZ
  • It covers a wide range of areas of expertise related to outreach
  • And we put NZ practitioners on the stage!


This conference is bringing vision to the table for how we, as the Church in Aotearoa-New Zealand, can better represent ourselves and the message of hope we have with our nation. This is about listening to our own heroes – to learn from practitioners in our own nation about how we could better bless our communities, and bring change!
