LLL joined 110 service and ministry leaders of the Queensland district at the second LCAQD Ministry Summit, held at Brisbane Technology Park in September.
In 2019, the first LCAQD Ministry Summit, delegates included ministry and leadership personnel from Lutheran congregations, Lutheran Education Queensland (LEQ), Queensland Lutheran Early Childhood Services (QLECS), Lutheran Services and Lutheran Youth of Queensland (LYQ) and was combined with the District Pastors Conference. This year, congregational volunteers were included in the invitations, and what a richness this added!
The summit aimed to connect, celebrate, and collaborate in the spirit of building strong communities with each other and in-home congregations, aged care facilities and schools.
Bishop Mark Varnika spoke to delegates about the importance of the people we know and love, but with the wider community, ensuring everyone has a voice; listening, showing others love and bringing out the best in each person.
Utilising the lessons learned from ministry-building activities, delegates broke into smaller workshops to grow on the ideas of those who paved a path before them and to develop new ideas on how to foster the love of God in their communities.
Summit organisers were able to subsidise the cost of tickets for young adult leaders, such as Lutheran Youth Queensland camp leaders and congregational volunteers, thanks to LLL’s support.
It was our pleasure to be able to support and join in these important conversations.
