Canberra Youth + Children’s Ministry Training

Saturday 29 July 2023

GROW is the convention designed to train, encourage and challenge people in ministry to youth and children across Canberra and the surrounding region.


Including talks and electives, with content that is Biblical, practical and inspiring, GROW is the opportunity to learn alongside other leaders like you in our area. GROW is for everyone who is involved in ministry to young people, whether you are just starting out volunteering through to a paid ministry leader. It is for people in churches, school based ministry, and anywhere else you find people working alongside young people to know and follow Jesus.

GROW as leaders as God uses you to GROW those you lead.


 Saturday 29 July
      8:30am – 1:00pm

Veritas Building, Australian Catholic University

KeyNote Speaker: Bruce Linton

Bruce Linton has been in paid youth and children’s ministry since 1984 and feels like he is just starting to get the hang of it! Over the past decade it has been an increasing pleasure for Bruce to be involved in training leaders and is spurred on by the writer of Psalm 78 when he encouraged us with phrases like, “we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord”- he is keener than ever to get on with that great task. Bruce lives with his wife Jan, and they delight in their 4 children and 4 grandchildren (at last count). 

Morning tea provided.
