Canberra Men’s Christian Convention

18 May 2019

Be challenged to follow Jesus and the apostle Paul to have disciple-making DNA. 

Set aside the day to be challenged by God’s word and the Spirit to take the good news we have received, fan it into flame to let others know it, and build God’s kingdom!






The Canberra Men’s Christian Convention will still be held on the day of the federal election. We will encourage men attending to pre-poll or vote by post. You can find details on the Australian Electoral Commission website here: https://www.aec.gov.au/voting/ways_to_vote


Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you— Guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.

2 Timothy 1:14


Ben at his heart would love people to know and follow Jesus. One of seven children, Ben became a Christian aged 19 whilst studying engineering and has desired that his fellow Australians meet King Jesus ever since. Married to Emma with four children, he relocated with his family from Melbourne to take the role of director of MTS – such is his passion to raise up future gospel workers. When Ben’s not racing for the train and praying for his street, his neighbourhood and the nation – he enjoys time with his family, SAS novels and physical training…

“We’ve received the ripper news of Jesus. 2 Timothy will help us to more confidently know our faith in Him, gain a stronger faith in suffering, and pass our faith on to other men.” 

Ben Pfahlert

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

2 Timothy 2:2


Men need mates. Be a mate and invite a mate to convention. Your invitation could be the reason your mate attends. 

Will you be the friend who says, “I’m going to men’s convention this year – will you come to?”

But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, preach the word

2 Timothy 4:5
