We are very pleased to announce that the New Zealand Training Centre will host a Blending Conference in July with Brother Ed Marks. When we invited Brother Ed to come, he replied by saying:
“I truly feel that the saints in New Zealand are a great treasure to the entire recovery. The time that I was in New Zealand was a great privilege to me, and it was one of the most memorable experiences of Christ that I personally have had in all of my time in the Lord’s recovery. I would be more than happy to give a conference to the saints in New Zealand.”
The overall title for the conference will be: “The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the Age”.
8:30 a.m. Saturday 24 July – 5 p.m. Lord’s Day 25 July 2021
This conference will be conducted in both a physical format and an online format.
New Zealand is in a unique situation of being able to have large physical gatherings. We hope that as many saints as possible would take advantage of this and attend this conference physically. This will give you an enhanced, uplifted experience. There will not be any meeting on Saturday evening, so saints can use this time to fellowship in their hospitality over the burden of the messages. Because we would like to encourage saints to attend physically, the church in Hamilton will bear the burden to cover the cost for all those who attend physically.
The physical meetings will be held in Hamilton at the New Zealand Training Centre. There will be three language gatherings – English, Chinese and Korean. Saints can request hospitality on the registration form or can make their own arrangements. We warmly welcome and encourage any saints who are able to come physically to join us in Hamilton for this weekend!
The online meeting will be a video feed of the English gathering held at the New Zealand Training Centre. Translation will be available into the Chinese and Korean languages.
The schedule will be as follows (all times are in New Zealand time):
Saturday 24 July
Session 1 – 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Session 2 – 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
