New South Wales
IDMC Conference Sydney 2017
Dayspring Church, 15 Salisbury Avenue, Castle Hill
How do we redeem the marketplace for Jesus? Where do the majority of men and women spend the majority of their time interacting with a majority of the lost world? In the workplace. Yet few Christians hear sermons relating biblical principles to their work life.
IDMC Conference 2017 picks up the crucial theme of marketplace discipleship. If you want to redeem the marketplace for Jesus, this is the conference for you. With guest speaker Richmond Wander, special sessions for pastors and leaders, a Young Adult conference and a full children’s program, the whole family can attend.
RSVP: Early bird ticket prices are available until 31 May; learn more here.

Richmond Wandera at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church

Don’t miss hearing internationally sought-after pastor and speaker Richmond Wandera. Enjoy food and fellowship after the service with Annie’s Woodfired Pizza available for sale.
Richmond Wandera was raised in Ngaruru slum in Uganda. After his father was tragically murdered, Richmond lost all hope. Alongside his mother, he was left to care for his six siblings and spent countless days wandering the streets searching for food for his family. When he was registered into Compassion's Child Sponsorship Program and sponsored by Heather, a 15-year-old student, Richmond began to see his life differently. His remarkable childhood and life experiences have inspired and impacted people all over the world.
