By God’s grace, Oceania UBF had a joint Summer Bible Conference, 2022. It took place at El Kanah Christian Centre, near Melbourne in Australia, between December 9-11.
The attendants were from Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, and Auckland (New Zealand), and also from the USA, Korea, and Germany. The total amount of registered attendants was 76, 63 in person+13 in zoom. The conference was supposed to be held in person, but just before the conference, corona attacked some missionaries and several next-generation leaders. Those of who were even lecture speakers, persons for baptism, and testimony speakers.
Due to the influence of the coronavirus, 13 people who registered could not attend, so, they arranged the conference to be in hybrid mode, and prepared zoom service. Under the unstable situation, however, God made the conference joyful, inspirational, encouraging and empowering. The conference was a historical one; in that, the number of young leaders and students exceeded that of missionaries for the first time! And also all main lecture speakers and life testimony speakers were composed of young leaders for the first time. In this historical point, they praise the Lord who blessed the faith and devotion of all our missionaries over the decades. In this conference, our next-generation leaders showed their growth in God’s word and ministry.
