ReachOut 2013 'Every Tribe. Every Nation' August 10-11 @ KCC, Katoomba

From the beginning to the end of Scripture we see God's heart for all nations. Through his covenant with Abraham he promised blessing to all nations. In the final commission of Jesus we are sent to make disciples of all nations and around the throne of our Lord in heaven there will be people from every nation, people, tribe and tongue. It is an awesome vision ... So what is our role?

At ReachOut 2013 we will consider the work of God among 'every tribe and every nation' to make the message of salvation known. We will seek to understand our role in God's mission, the progress of the gospel among the nations and the opportunities that exist for us to get involved both here and overseas.

We will have two great speakers with us. Joshua Bogunjoko, the newly appointed International Director of SIM who has served as a missionary doctor for many years in Niger, and Simon Longden, National Director, Pioneers of Australia. We will also have heaps of mission agencies, great workshops, awesome worship and loads of people to chat to about global mission.

Joshua Bogunjoko

Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko currently serves as the International Director of SIM, an international organization with more than 1,600 active missionaries in over 60 countries. From its founding, SIM has enjoyed a multinational membership drawn from over 70 nations.

Joshua has previously served as SIM Deputy International Director of West Africa and Europe since 2006. Prior to that, he was Director of Galmi Hospital in Niger, West Africa. He served as national president of the evangelical movement of young Christian graduates doing their national service in Nigeria. During university, Joshua excelled in leadership roles of the Nigerian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (NIFES).

You can read an interview with Joshua HERE.


Simon Longden

Simon has enjoyed a variety of roles including that of Registered Nurse, an officer in the Australian Regular Army and a career in the pharmaceutical industry.

With his wife, Joy, he took a year out to experience short-term missions first-hand during the nineties and has never been the same since! That year in West Africa was a significant turning point for both Simon and Joy, and was the ultimate factor that influenced Simon's decision to go to Bible College where he majored in Missions.

Simon's passion includes helping the local church to shift missions from the fringe to the focus. The opportunities for this generation of Australian Christians to impact the world strategically and 'turn it upside down' is unprecedented.

Simon, with Joy and their two girls, Sarah and Gabby, has been working with Pioneers since 2001 and spent much of that time in Sydney. Now back in Melbourne, Simon is the National Director of Pioneers of Australia. He loves reading, travel, fun with the kids, good coffee and hearing how God is at work in people’s lives.
