ENTRUSTED – CMA’s 12th annual conference for Christian Leaders, Managers and Board Members

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 | Melbourne
Held on 2-4 June 2014 in Melbourne, this year's conference is strategically aligned with the 'Arrow Leadership Conference' (formerly the Cre8 marketplace conference). This collaborative event creates an outstanding three-day opportunity for business and ministry leaders.

Guard what has been entrusted to your care – 1 Timothy 6:20 

As leaders, managers and board members of Christian organisations, great trust has been placed in us. We are entrusted by our governing authorities to be stewards of charitable concessions. We are entrusted by donors with valuable resources. We are entrusted by staff and volunteers with their labours and their safety. We are entrusted by society to care properly for those we seek to minister to.

And we are entrusted by God to be stewards of the opportunities and mission He has placed before us.

Join us in 2014 as we explore ways to honour that trust with skill, diligence and discernment.
