Wisdom for Life and Ministry
Welcome to our first Seniors Convention! As Seniors we have seen a lot of change through our lives and from a Christian perspective not all of these changes have been welcome. What are we to make of this? How are we to make the most of the vast experience that we have? God hasn't finished with us just because we reach a particular age or stage of life.
Why don't you join us for a weekend of Bible teaching from our guest speaker Peter Adam, a range of seminars, great food and fellowship.
Guest Speaker: Peter Adam.... was born and raised in Melbourne and converted at age 16. He studied classical music, then trained for the ministry at Ridley College. He has served in ministry in Melbourne, London, and Durham, including 20 years at St Jude's Carlton and 10 years as Principal of Ridley.
He continues his ministry of preaching, writing, encouraging people in ministry, supervising research students, speaking at conferences and training preachers in Australia and overseas.
His books include commentaries on Ezra-Nehemiah, Malachi, and Hebrews, and three books on the Bible: Written for Us, Intervarsity Press: Hearing God's Words, IVP: and Speaking God's Words, IVP.
