A Message From Pastor David Boyd

Greetings to you all.

For three years we have not been together as a family of churches. We have now passed through the gates of Covid and are on the other side. Since we have not been together for such a long time in person, this conference will be even more special.

This year will be slightly different than previous gatherings. We will be looking at being more in-house, with speakers coming from Australia and New Zealand, and Graham Fletcher, who will be in Australia at that time, will join with us.

It is time for us to focus on building our churches. I remember in the early days having a discussion with Gary and Joyce where we concluded that we needed to see our churches grow if we were to have anything to offer. We saw that happen! The same is true today. It is time to build, and we need to come to the Word of God to understand how Jesus wants his church to be built. Therefore, for this conference, we have chosen the theme “I will build my church and the gates of Hades (Death) will not prevail against it.”

This conference will explore what the Bible says about Church Community. The values that we need to build on, the ethos that will grow authentic church, how we can build a church that will attract all peoples in our community and be truly generational.

Our conferences so far have been good, with excellent guest speakers that have added to the lives of the ministers who have come. I think this conference will do this but it will also give principles, keys, and insights into how to grow our churches so that they can be more relevant and effective in the 21st Century.

I look forward to seeing you there.

David Boyd
Life Church International Australia
Acting Leader
