Growing Gospel Passions - EFAC National Conference 2006
reprinted from the Spring 2006 edition of Essentials


   Around 120 delegates attended the June conference in Sydney, representing each of the EFAC branches from across the country. One delegate said, "I am inspired to return to my diocese with renewed hope and passion, and a greater knowledge of the resources that are available for Evangelicals around our country." Jonathan Wei-Han Kuan is the editor of Essentials, and was at Growing Gospel Passions with his wife Valerie.


   I was deeply encouraged and refreshed, and was inspired by the great opportunity to develop a vision for evangelism and ministry across the whole nation through the Anglican Church.
  Bp Wallace Benn gave three Bible studies from Philippians. Four 'passionate' plenary sessions given by Peter Jensen, Steve Abbott, Lyn Sarah and Glenn Davies. All 7 talks are available as mp3 downloads from the: http://www.sydneyanglicans.net/indepth/articles/growing_gospel_passions_efac_20062/
  Additionally, several seminars and workshops were held, as well as a challenging panel discussion on the state of evangelicalism in the Australian Anglican church. Reflections from the conference and edited notes from workshops will appear in your summer edition of Essentials, in time for your Christmas stockings!  
  The great value of the conference was affirmed in June, and EFAC's National Executive has fixed the next National Conference for October 2008 in Melbourne. Please mark your diaries and plan to be there!
