Event description


Acts 29 invites you to start the year well with this special three day event focusing on drilling deeper into our local community and reaching wider through global missions. Join us on the Gold Coast on February 23-25 2017.

The mission of the gospel is necessarily built on a deep and robust theological foundation. Good theology is what drives gospel mission forward, reaching out further and further, seeing the gospel expand. That’s why Theological clarity is such an essential part of the Acts 29 Network, it propels us forward on mission where Cultural Engagement which leads to Missional Innovation. All of this is born out of and anchored in solid theology. At the Acts 29 Network Conference on the Gold Coast we will drill deep into the theology that leads us to planting churches that reach wide for the sake of gospel mission.

Conference features include:
  • Featuring worship by Citizens and Saints
  • Six keynote presentations from respected A29 leaders around the world
  • Breakout sessions targeting specific areas of church planting and pastoral ministry
  • Church planter Q&A panel
  • Time to spend in fellowship in beautiful Gold Coast


The theme for this year's conference is Drilling Deeper, Reaching Wider and we have a great lineup of speakers, including:
