ReachOut 2014 'LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS' August 9-10 @ KCC, Katoomba

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)

Spiritual darkness is real and thriving in today’s world, a darkness that pervades lives overwhelmed by evils such as human trafficking, conflict, violence and addiction. Every day across the planet, billions of people are eking out an existence without true life and hope.

But they need not be left in this state of hopelessness and spiritual emptiness!

Christ has come and broken that darkness through his death and resurrection. And he sends us out to be light in the world and to shine a message of hope.

ReachOut 2014 will explore how we can shine God’s light in the dark places of the world through our words and deeds. We will look to understand our role in God’s mission, the progress of the gospel among the nations and opportunities for us to get involved both here and overseas. 

We will have two great speakers with us. Peter Maiden,who served as the International Director of Operation Mobilisation from 2003-2013, and Tim Blencowe, who serves as the Pastor of Macquarie Baptist, the Baptist chaplain to Macquarie Uni and the Chair of Preaching at Morling College.

We will also have heaps of mission agencies, great workshops, awesome worship and loads of people to chat to about global mission.
