Wednesday, 9 September
Greenlane Christian Centre
17 Marewa Road, Greenlane, Auckland
5:30 – 7:30 pm
NZ Christian Network’s (Auckland) AGM event at Greenlane Christian Centre, with special guest speaker Sam Bloore. Sam is widely respected as one of the most thoughtful and inspiring younger leaders in NZ today. Opportunities to network like this in Auckland – AND hear a great message – are not that common, so book it in!
Sam Bloore is a gifted young leader, who wears many hats including Communications and Residential Host for Venn Foundation, leader in Compass Ministries, and regular presenter with CBA.
Sam has known (and often returns to visit) small town life, growing up in Dargaville prior to studying medicine and bioethics at Otago University. He worked as a doctor for 5 years in Emergency Medicine and Psychiatry and then began a gradual career change in 2002. Over the next few years he joined the staff of his local church and completed a Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology.
Sam is interested in many aspects of faith and culture – in particular, how individuals establish and enhance a personal spirituality that is stable and sustaining, amidst a society that is increasingly frantic and fragmented. He and his wife Julia oversee the residential life of the internship and are committed to developing the conversations and community practices that provide opportunities for growth and formation. Their two young children, Eden and Benjamin, take up most of their spare time!
