This coming week I have the privilege for the first time of ministering in Australia. It’s a trip I’ve been working on for about 3 years, waiting for the right time. This seems to be it.
Philip Percival, of EMU Music was the first one to contact me about coming to the TWIST conference, an annual event for church leaders, song leaders, and musicians. This year the date is Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 AM – 3 PM. Trevor Hodge and Garage Hymnal will also be participating. Looking forward to spending time with both of them.
I’ll also be speaking/leading at a TWIST event in Brisbane on Wednesday night. Thursday afternoon I’ll be speaking at an event at Moore College, followed by a pastors’ conference on Friday. You can get more info and register for any of the TWIST events here.
In addition, I’ll be leading songs and speaking on True Worship at a RICE Regenerate rally on Monday, Oct. 3 at the Wesley Conference Theatre.
Finally, I’ll have the privilege of speaking at Sovereign Grace Church, Sydney, led by Dave Taylor on Sunday Oct. 1 & 8, and at Church by the Bridge, led by Paul Dale, on Sunday evening, Oct. 8. Looking forward to being with these dear saints.
I hope at some point to start blogging again. Numerous activities and priorities have been taking up a bit of time. Among them has been overseeing Steve Cook as he puts the final touches on our live album, The Gathering, which we hope to release on Nov. 15. Very excited about what we have thus far.
Good on ya, mate! Remember to eat lots of vegemite! :-) Can’t wait to hear about your trip when you’re back home.
We are really looking forward to your visit…see you Wednesday night in BrisVegas – local vernacular for Brisbane!
Looking forward to TWIST Brisbane!
Sorry I can’t make the trip to Sydney or Brisbane, Bob.
I’m sure you’ll get great hospitality in both places.
And even though politeness will stop you from mentioning it, you’ll love Brisbane.
Sounds like an awesome trip, Bob. Pray God’s favor upon you. Also look forward to you blogging again!
Incredible time for Sydney – thanks so much for dropping by. To see a room full of conservative Sydney people freed to express their worship with their head, heart and hips was inspiring.
Yeah, what Andy said! Your backing band was pretty decent too :)
I really enjoyed listening to your talk “Let the people be glad – worshipping God mind, soul and body” from TWIST in Sydney. I’d really like to share your thoughts on this topic with the rest of the music and ministry team at my local church (see scpc.org.au) and my friends on Facebook. Could you please provide me with a copy of your talk notes somehow so I can discuss your talk with others? Thanks.
I’ll be posting the link this week.
