YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN

KEITH HILL FROM TOOWOOMBA

Keith ministers to university students at UniSQ in Toowoomba with the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES).

What is it to be human? Do we have a God given nature? Do we have limitations? What is the heart of our need for things like rest and community? Keith will delve into the heart of what it is to be merely human and also a child of God.

GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY AND HUMAN RESPONSIBILITY

DEREK SCHILLER FROM ST GEORGE

Derek is the lead pastor of the Church of Christ in St George and Dirranbandi. He is also on the board of the SWQCC.

If God is sovereign, do we really make any decisions of our own? All Christians have to ask themselves this question, and we want to figure out how does God’s sovereignty help us as Christians, family members, workers and spouses.

OUT OF THE SALT SHAKER TOGETHER

SAM HERD FROM CHINCHILLA

Sam Herd is the pastor at Chinchilla Presbyterian Church, along with his wife Lucy.

What does it look like to partner in evangelism as Christians? Sam will be explore how it is not a lonely activity to share the gospel with people. Rather, biblically the church is a community and evangelistic body, all working together to glorify and seek the truth of Jesus.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

MATT MACPHERSON FROM ST GEORGE

Matt is the associate pastor at the Church of Christ in St George and Dirranbandi.

We know that the devil is at work in this world, but how are we to understand and respond to the spiritual battle that is the Christian life. Matt will delve into the Bible to endeavour to see God’s view of spiritual warfare in light of the victory of Christ.

BIBLICAL WOMANHOOD

JODIE SCHILLER & MICHELLE MACPHERSON FROM ST GEORGE

Jodie and Michelle partner with their husbands in pastoral ministry in St George and Dirranbandi.

On such a controversial topic in the world, where responses have been to either quiet or elevate women, we must look at the Bible to have the final say on our identity and roles as Christian women.

BEING A CHRISTIAN IN A SECULAR WORKFORCE

BRAD DEWSON FROM DALBY

Brad is the new pastor at Dalby Presbyterian Church, along with his wife Sharna, and their four children. 

What does it look like to be a Christian in a secular workplace? Christians are called to be in the world, but not of it, to glorify their Saviour and King in both word and action, in both the Christian and secular contexts.
