    The Disappearing Evangelist

    Presented by Steve Chong
    Tuesday 12th May 202018

    All around the church, we see pastors, teachers, and church planters, but where is the evangelist? In fact, what even is ‘the evangelist?’ Is it the preacher at a crusade, the leader of your church’s Alpha course or the person in the marketplace? How will the church enter this new decade keeping evangelism at the forefront?

    These are questions that Steve Chong, founding director of the RICE movement, believes the church should be asking in order to carry out its mission today. The church is at crossroads, there is a harvest waiting and a church unsure as to how to harvest it. Is it new methods we need, a return to old ones, or something else?

    Does the evangelistic rally still have a place in the Australian church today? In 2014, Eternity magazine even asked, “Is it time to give up on the big evangelistic rally?”

    Defying this trend is the phenomenal success of the RICE Movement. Since 2002 they have been bringing people together at their evangelistic rallies in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Perth and now Sao Paulo (Brazil) with many more cities in the pipeline. Why is their ministry so effective? What does it tell us about the ministry of evangelism, the content of the gospel, and the needs and interests of young Australians?

    The Bible in Australia

    Thursday, 16 May 2019
    Presenter: Dr Meredith Lake

    We’re all pretty used to the idea that Australia isn’t a 'Christian country', but it is still a culture upon which the Bible has cast a pretty long shadow. Christian belief and practice have been here since the First Fleet arrived. Today, references to biblical phrases (“my brother’s keeper”) and allusions to Bible teaching (“Do unto others…”) are commonplace. But, as we saw in the same-sex marriage debate, no one wants to hear the Bible quoted authoritatively in public debates.

    Based on her award-winning book, The Bible in Australia, Dr Lake presented the historical 'backstory' to where we are at with the Bible now, with a view to exploring the best uses of the Bible in public discourse and political debate.
