Every year Overseas Council Australia invites visiting scholars and students to come to Australia. This provides you and all our donors with the opportunity to hear first-hand about the work they are involved in.
Typically these events fall twice yearly, in March and October. The first is our Speakers Program and the second our Annual Dinner Series.
Past Annual Dinner Series
Our Annual Dinner series last year was held in October and November. With the current pandemic restricting international travel, we postponed Bishop Dr Samy Shehata’s visit until 2022. Instead, we were delighted to present three Australian based guest speakers who are passionate about contextual theological education around the world and brought a wealth of experience to our theme - exploring the ways that disruption necessitates innovation and agile leadership.
Thank you to our wonderful guest speakers:
Brisbane QLD - Rev. Dr. Peter Francis, Principal at Malyon College.
Perth WA - Rev. Dr. Ben Johnston, Senior Minister at Subiaco Church.
Sydney, Central Coast & Maitland NSW - Rev. Simon Gillham, Head of Mission at Moore Theological College.
