Home Or Away? Locating Sport And Leisure In Christian Faith And Practice

11 July 2017 @ 8:30 am - 13 July 2017 @ 2:00 pm

$150

Special price only for Sports Chaplains.

Register now

In association with Carey Baptist College.

The conference is designed to equip and train chaplains, Christian leaders and pastors, Christians working in the sports and leisure space, athletes themselves, or anyone with an interest in sports (the dad coaching his son’s football team for example).

We’ll be addressing questions such as:

  • What is the place for competition in the Christian life?
  • What does the Bible teach about the place of sport and recreation in spiritual formation?
  • The religiousness of sport in a secular age?
  • What can we learn about leadership from the world of elite sport?

Keynote speakers:

Dr Robert Ellis (Regent’s Park College, Oxford)

Ian Foster (Assistant Coach – All Blacks)

Grace Rasmussen (Netballer, NZ Silver Ferns)

Other speakers include Cam Butler (Sports Chaplaincy Australia), Dr Myk Habets, Phil Halstead and Paul Askin.

 

Special price for Sports Chaplains

We are offering Sports Chaplains a special full conference price of $150 (normal earlybird is $180 until 31st May), or $50 per day. Or if you are a student, the full price is just $50. This includes morning and afternoon teas and lunches each day.
