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.

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.
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.
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.
Keynote Speakers :
Dr Richard Gibson Principal, Brisbane School of Theology
Dr John Warlow Psychiatrist, Founder of Living Wholeness
Mr. Harry Hoffmann Key Leader of Global Member Care Movement
Assoc Prof Dr Jill Willis Assoc Professor of Research and Education QUT Brisbane
Accommodation is not available at BST: face to face attendees will need to find their own local accommodation.
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.
