Kategoria is a 3-day program is designed to equip you for wise Christian political and cultural leadership through in-depth seminars centred around three big themes:
1) Discipleship and leadership in post-Christian Australia,
2) A category-defying Christian social vision,
3) Sharing the gospel in a post-Christian Australia
The goal of the conference is to draw together a range of experienced and emerging Christian leaders and put them in community for a few days. We soak up teaching from the Bible and think together about growing as leaders and engaging our culture with a gospel shaped vision for human flourishing.
Kategoria is unique in the combination of themes and people it draws together. We proceed from the conviction that the gospel of Jesus is what our society needs. This means that core to the calling and training of Christian leaders is the task of equipping each other to say and show the gospel. We are also convinced that when the gospel is heard and takes root in human lives it leads to change in individual lives, communities and societies. A well-equipped Christian leader has a social vision as well as an evangelistic calling. Kategoria takes both dimensions of Christian cultural engagement and leadership seriously. The three days of the conference are structured around three big themes: discipleship and leadership in post-Christian Australia; a category-defying Christian social vision; and, sharing the gospel in a post-Christian Australia (check out the draft program below).
