As a people who love God, we don’t believe in just sitting around! With a range of ministries and entities geared both for our church and our community, we are actively involved in bringing fun, support and meaning to people of all persuasions and age groups.

Big Camp 2021

As many as 1000 people get together at our beautiful Riverside Convention Centre for what is affectionately known as “Big Camp.” People stay in caravans and tents, or trip in each day to participate in workshops and training, children’s activities and Bible presentations. It’s a real special time where people from all over the Northern Australian Conference meet up and enjoy fun, food and fellowship and are refreshed spiritually.

NAC BIG CAMP 2021 CANCELLED

The Northern Australian Conference Executive Committee have met and made the decision to cancel NAC Big Camp for 2021. The current restrictions around coronavirus COVID-19 make it illegal to hold, travel (for attendees, speakers & guests, & the camp cook!) and there is uncertainty regarding the duration of these restrictions.

ATSIM

One of the blessings of our territory is to have such ethnic diversity. In order to better reach out to indigenous Australians we have our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ministry (ATSIM) Department, which is dedicated to sharing the Gospel of the soon coming of Jesus Christ to our Aboriginal and Islander people in Australia.

ATSIM runs Regional weekend programs, Camps and STORMCO’s (young people service ministry that stands for Service To Others Really Matters) throughout the Northern Australian Conference. These programs are designed to connect back with communities by building relationships, cross cultural awareness, healthily living & finding hope in Jesus.

ATSIM also identifies what young people have to offer and invests in youth leadership training and assists in providing strong Aboriginal & Islander leadership for the church, the community and the world.

Ministry for Ministers

Our pastors need a pastor too! Theirs is a unique role where they are constantly giving of themselves to help others in all kinds of circumstances, emotions and needs. So where does the pastor turn when he needs someone to talk to? That is the role of the Minister to the Ministers. He is there to support, encourage and guide the pastors in their busy occupations. Often he is just a listening ear and a sounding board, while at other times he is a resource person, advisor and advocate. Contact is made with the pastors through regular emails, calls, visits and meetings.

Personal Ministries

The task of the Personal Ministries Department is to inspire, motivate, equip, train, and mobilize Seventh-day Adventist Church members for dynamic Christian service with the conviction that the church is organized for service, and every member is called by God to be a missionary for the service of God and for fellow men.

  • Dynamic Small Group implementation
  • Community Service training
  • Maximising potential of Sharing Jesus with others
  • Bible study/sermon preparation and delivery
  • Spiritual gift identification, and utilisation
  • Resourcing members and discipleship training

Trust Services

The Northern Australian Conference provides a Will service to its members through the Trust Services Department in South Queensland. The service has operated for over thirty years and is under the supervision of practicing lawyers.

For legal reasons, the service provided is limited to “those associated with the church”. This is understood as referring to church members and others who attend church services. Wills are prepared free of charge and without financial obligation to leave a bequest to the church. Information Forms are available by calling the Trust Services Department on (07) 4779 3988, during business hours.

Appointments can be made online or by calling the Conference Office. As Trust Services is not based in the Northern Australian Conference most appointments need to be made for during Big Camp. Some dates may be available outside of Big Camp in your area, so please check the booking site for availability.
