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.
