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:
Engaging kids in God’s big story - Leanne Palmer

The Bible is God’s Big Story! A story of love, failure, rescue, redemption, grace and promise. It's a story that goes before us, includes and invite us, and a story that goes beyond us. In the Bible we see lives transformed through encountering God and following Jesus. However, the world of our kids can be so different to the places, the experiences and the contexts of the stories we share. How do we engage our 21st century kids with the Bible in real, relevant and life-changing ways?

Youth:
Engaging spiritual conversations with youth - Steve Forward

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.

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

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.

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:
Leaving the nest: transitioning young adults - Erica Skerman [R]
Leadership & Culture:
Rethinking discipleship (double elective Sessions 2&3) - Terry Williams [R]

With current data telling us that the Western church has been losing more than 50% of young people every year from the church and the Christian faith, there is an urgent need to rethink how we are outworking Jesus’ final command to ‘go and make disciples’. Come and explore 2 foundational principles and 8 key pillars that will help to shape a long term discipling strategy for the children and young people in your context.

Session 3: Electives

Children and Families:
Unpacking a Sunday - Andy Kirk [R]

‘Unpacking a Sunday’ is a session where we walk through each part of a Sunday from Team meeting - set up - Check in - Hang time - Praise and worship - Big and small group teaching time - games and the atmospheres.

Youth:
The power of mentoring - Jim Schirmer [R]

Jim Schirmer is a counsellor, educator, church re-former and spiritual mentor who has worked with youth and young adults for over 15 years. He is the author of 'The Way of the Rabbi: Stories of Discipleship from the Gospel of Mark' (Morning Star Publishing).
