Pioneer Ministry Forum

RIDLEY COLLEGE, 170 The Avenue, Parkville, Melbourne, VIC 3052

Anglican leaders from around the Australian Church gathered in Melbourne to discuss the development and growth of pioneer ministry on 26 April 2016.

The day aimed to do three things:

1.     find out how Australian Anglicans are doing at developing pioneer initiatives;

2.    highlight the various approaches used to support and sustain pioneer ministers;

3.    identify the ways in which we can help pioneer ministry grow so that it can become a vibrant part of our future.

The forum was designed to stimulate conversation and learning among participants. Copies of presentations are available below.
