The Issue

 

The Australian Church is at a crossroads, 60-80% of young adults will leave the church once they finish their education and with an average of only 2 people coming to faith each year in each church (Transforming Melbourne) the church is in a real predicament. Not only are people leaving the church but less than 2 of every 10 Christians in Australia are engaging with God on a daily basis through the Word (NCL 2006). Three out of five young people do not talk to their Christian friends about the bible and half have not heard God speak to them through the Word during the week (Milk to Meat).

 

The Australian Church has a discipleship issue. Many Australian Christians understand the importance of the Word but don’t really think they need it. "Everything in life travels along ok with or without reading the Word, so why bother reading it". There is a dichotomy between what we’re doing on a Sunday and what lives look like during the week.

 

Milk to Meat is responding to this crisis and is hosting an event that is more than a conference or seminar. We are attempting to take quite a different track from most other conferences around today. Firstly the event goes for 6months, and secondly it incorporates, a seminar, surveys, tele-classes and personalised coaching. All encapulated in one event, aiming to see Bible enagagement increase in your church and ministry.

 

 

What you get? (Over 6months)

 

  • One day Bible Engagement Seminar, with guest speakers (Kylie Butler, Cheryl Catford-McCallum and Adrian Blenkinsop) passionate about Bible engagement and years of influence and expertise.
  • Follow up tele-class (online) with specific focus topics
  • 2 one-on-one Skype Coaching sessions with a professional coach to help you set , assess and implement goals for your ministry.
  • Bible engagement survey of your ministry pre and post event.

 

Excellent opportunity for regional and interstate leaders, as only attendance required is the One-Day Seminar, the remainder is completed online.

The Christian community in Australia is in a major crisis and for the most part we are completely unaware of it. If the current trends of Biblical disengagement continue, within the next 30 years the bible will be “a thing of the past” for most people who claim to follow Jesus.

What is Bible Engagement? PDF Print E-mail

What is Bible Engagement? New Australian research shows that Aussie's struggle to read the Bible. There are so many Bible engagement programs, devotionals, reading plans that are available today. Many of them focus on knowledge and truth, both of which are very important but the outcome that makes the Bible come alive and the one people are hungry for, is a REAL encounter with God. So while all devotionals and bible engagement methods should be well-designed and help people form life-long habits, the most important thing is that they must also help people develop a relationship with God.
