Living Wholeness International Community Conference
Passion for Growth

At BST, Brisbane, Australia & Online | AUG 7-9 2021

This conference will be hybrid style, located at BST, Brisbane, Australia for the face-to-face element, while zooming in and out to those gathered around the globe. The conference will be most relevant for Christian pastors, lay and professional counsellors, coaches and mentors, mental health workers, counselling educators and researchers. It is geared both for the current Living Wholeness Community as well as guests.

Living Wholeness is founded on the Christian Wholeness Framework (CWF). Click Here

The CWF offers a masterpiece of God’s divine ways, leading us all into a deeper relational experience with God and fellow man, resulting in genuine change.

Dr. Philip Lye. Th.D, Missionary

With creative plenaries, 4 workshop streams, book launches, home groups, networking opportunities, discussions, and more, on a wide range of relevant topics, from a range of international contributors, this will be another milestone in the history of Living Wholeness. Many of the sessions will be relevant to current issues such as COVID mental health.

The CWF is the most comprehensive road map to the process of counselling others that I know of.

Prof. Brad Smith
Lausanne Care and Counsel Commitee Chair

Participants are able to choose to attend any of the workshops; the streams are a general guide to the content level, but people are free to attend any session from any stream. You will be required to nominate your elective workshop choices not your stream choice.

The CWF is the best example of integration of theology and psychology I have seen in 30 years of ministry and counselling practice.

Prof. Simon Lee. PhD Theology, PhD Psychology. Retired Professor, Chinese University of Hong Kong

It is often best to attend such a conference with your team so all are exposed to the input, you can attend different workshops and share learning, and you can develop ideas together into the future as a team. Hence we offer discounts for groups over 5 people.

Fee Schedule

Conference costing ethos

Living Wholeness works in a range of national economies. For many in Asia, especially during COVID, a cost of AUD$40 is a still a major outlay. For many in western nations a conference of such calibre at AUD$390 is a major bargain. How to reconcile these two in a fair way? 

Living Wholeness holds the following principles regarding cost:

  • No one should be turned away from training because of their financial situation.
  • Those with lower incomes, whether because of country of living or choice to become a pastor, missionary, chaplain, etc should be able to gain equal access. 
  • Those who God has blessed with higher incomes are invited to consider their fee as a donation to assist with the costs of those with lower incomes. 
  • People do value training more when they contribute something to the cost, thus all should offer at least a small contribution.
  • Asians always like discounts but also there are costs involved.
  • There is nothing to stop people contributing a little over their calculated cost to assist support the lower pricing structure. 

The face-to-face cost involves meals and coffee breaks, a few morning session options, greater networking opportunities with fellow participants and speakers, access the bookshop in real time, and so on.
