Men's gathering – Preparing for battle
We’re in a battle. It is a physical, spiritual and mental battle against a dangerous opponent. So how do we fight? This session will arm you with the weapons you need as James Ray and RT Kendall share openly from their experience and the word of God to equip and empower you to be prepared. This is a life-or-death fight to the finish. Wake up. Wake your mate up. And get to this session.
The entrepreneurs & business network drinks
If you are in business or an entrepreneur, then come and join others for drinks and networking. Hosted by the entrepreneurs & business network and Resurgo Ventures, it immediately follows the 'greater vision for business and entrepreneurship' seminar.
Women's gathering – Passion, purpose and potential
Among her many other ministries, Christine Caine is the founder and visionary behind Propel Women – an organisation that believes in the passion, purpose and potential of every woman, everywhere. Propel Women exists to honour the calling of every woman, to empower her to lead, equip her for success and develop a sense of God-given purpose. Come along to hear more.
