Ministry Conference, 2019


  • Presbyterian Theological College 684 Elgar Road Box Hill North VIC 3129 (map)

PTC is delighted to be holding our annual Ministry Conference again in March, 2019.

This year, we will have the privilege of hearing from David Cook, Jenny Salt, David Jones and Peter Adam.

"I can’t remember us having a combination of speakers and contemporary issues to match this conference". - David Cook

We will be focusing on the books of Hosea and 2 Timothy and how to preach the gospel unashamedly, with love and care towards those we are ministering to.
