waikato anglicans

I am back on the airplane again, flying up to be with the Anglicans in Waikato. I have been asked to speak around themes of leadership and mission, titled Learning to create a community of faith in a culture of change. Here is my schedule;

Tuesday 14th

3:30 to 5:00pm: Learning from an Ancient Text

7:30 to 9:00pm: Mission with a Kiwi Accent

Wednesday 15th

9:00am to 10:30 am: Creating Community with a Missional Imagination

11:00 – 12:30 pm: Creating a Community of Faith around Spiritual Practices

1:30pm: Workshop, Leader as Change Agent

It is very ecumenical and hospitable of the Anglicans to invite a Baptist. I had a great time with the Anglicans in Auckland in July, and May in Christchurch. I always gain a lot from these types of encounters, so am looking forward to it. Plus I get to re-connect with the most historic of the Prodigal Kiwi’s.

However, amid all this excitement is the realisation that this will be my 5th major speaking engagement in the last 6 weeks. That’s a fairly heavy schedule when I also have two day jobs as pastor and as lecturer, along with a family life to nurture.

  1. Steve, I wish we had this sort of thing here in Adelaide; it sounds like good authentic reflection. This is going to sound bad but I have been really impressed with Anglicans lately (Having begun my spiritual journey within their midst I am forever thankful). I came across ‘godpod’ a ministry of Holy Trinity Brompton and the St Pauls Theological centre in England. Both really inovative ways of encouraging theological reflection within the church.

  2. Hi Steve,
    I am one of those who attended this Anglican ministry school. I was greatly blessed by your ministry, and am grateful that you were offering your ministry to us, you made it so easy to translate your experiences to Anglican traditions.
    God bless you and your family, and your congregation to release you to share your gifts.
    Regards Bruno
