HUBS

From 12 hubs in 2021 to 30 in 2022…AMPLIFY is expanding so as to better serve the needs of local communities. Our inspiring keynote speakers and experienced elective presenters are drawn from across the country (and overseas) and their presentations are made available to all hubs. Check your nearest hub to see what’s on offer at your location.

Many hubs have taken the opportunity to add some local ‘in person’ trainers to complement their suite of pre-recorded elective topics. All pre-recorded electives will be facilitated so as to maximise small group discussion and tap into the wisdom in the room.

Enjoy your day at your hub. Bring your team, enjoy the richness of the Kingdom of God and fuel up for another year of ministry.  

The following elements will be at most hubs:

  • Opening Plenary session:
    Worship together & keynote presentation
  • Second Plenary session:
    Choose a keynote speaker from a range of ministry categories: Children & Families, Youth, Junior Leaders, RI in Schools (QLD only) or local speaker
  • 3 Elective sessions
  • Morning tea & lunch provided

Session 1: Electives

Children and Families:
Relevant kids’ ministry in 2022 - Tracy Valentine [R]

Several recent studies reveal why some kids become disengaged from the church or why faith doesn't seem relevant for them. We will delve into some solutions which are adaptable for every church context. Everyone can make a difference in a church community to help kids feel engaged. This elective is designed for all kids ministry volunteers as well as those who lead the ministry. You will leave with very practical ideas to help you increase the impact of your ministry. Tracy is passionate about ensuring we create thriving church communities where children feel loved and feel they belong as they grow in their faith. She has been a Kids and Families Pastor for 15 years and Lectures in Kids Ministry for the Queensland Baptist Theological College, Malyon.

Youth:
Identity Matters - Nurturing Young People’s Spiritual AND Personal Identity - Rowan Lewis [R]

Session 2: Electives

Children and Families:
The power of story - Terry Williams [R]

How can you hold an audience without a rope? Come and discover the key elements in the art of storytelling that will help to connect with your audience, maintain their attention and create a special space for God to touch people’s hearts and minds. Such is the power of story and it is as easy as A, B, C & D.

Youth:
Engaging spiritual conversations with youth - Steve Forward [R]

When it comes to spiritual conversations, Jesus was a true master. In this session, we will explore 7 tools that Jesus used to amazing effect in his conversations and apply them to the issues and concerns facing today's young people.

Session 3: Electives

Children and Families:
Active learning: craft that points to Jesus (RI applicable) - Fiona Millar [R]

Messy, frustrating and a waste of time - while some love craft, for many children their inability to reproduce the item that has been modelled simply reinforces a sense of failure. For leaders, it can seem to be a high risk, chaotic lesson experience with heaps of preparation and little value to the children. So why bother with craft at all? The process of 'doing/making' encourages children to listen and interact in different ways and facilitates great opportunities for reflection that we miss in faster paced didactic teaching and learning.

Youth:
When Faith Flounders - Helping Amidst Doubt, Questions and Crisis - Rowan Lewis [R]

With so many young people losing their faith and leaving the church a crucial leadership skill is helping young people when they have doubts and questions concerning their faith. Too often we are quick to talk and slow to listen. This workshop will unpack a really helpful framework to help you to feel confident working with young people as they navigate the hard times in their faith.

Leadership & Culture:
21st-century living – anxiety, uncertainty and constant change - Kerry Moss [R]

Humanity has been grappling with an invasion of mind. Fear and anxiety have moved in and whilst it is understandable when the world does not feel stable, we know we are made for greater things. This session aims firstly to help understand what is happening in anxious moments for individuals and its effect on relationships. We were designed and created for relationship and anxiety can often dent and damage the ways we connect with others and with God. The pandemic and other world issues have generally intensified feelings of anxiety, confusion and uncertainty. With that in mind, we will also explore lifestyle strategies to inspire thinking around positive connections for improved mental health and support for ourselves and our families as we continue to turn away from fear, uncertainty and constant change and turn towards the Father for His guidance in all circumstances, even when the world continues to show instability.
