National Renewal Conference 2017 27-29 October @ St Ursula’s College, 8 Rome St, Toowoomba

A Changing Church


500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses for discussion on a church door, and – to everyone’s great surprise – this launched a movement of reformation which touched the whole world. Millions (re)discovered the nature of faith in Jesus Christ, the grace of God and the power of salvation.

In our day, we long for God to change us again, and give

  • a new passion for Jesus,
  • humility to embrace the unity of the wider church,
  • and the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The National Renewal Conference is for you, if you are hungry for a new movement of reformation among the churches, and long to be changed yourself.

We expect to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and come away with fresh faith and love for Jesus Christ, forgiveness and healings, spiritual gifts and a heart for service, and a burden for the lost.

“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God” (Acts 10:44-46).



Rolland Baker

Dr Rolland Baker was one of the main speakers at last year’s Renewal Conference. He ministered in the joy of the Lord, but also acknowledged that many Pentecostals neither expected a “laughing revival” nor wanted it, because they longed to become more “respectable” and not look “weird” to mainline Christians. Dr Baker admonished us to keep our focus on Jesus, and resist any triumphalism which no longer has an understanding of Christian suffering. And he emphasized God’s sovereign leadership which trumps human control.

Dr Rolland Baker is one of the founders and leaders of Iris Global, and – after years of overseeing an amazing work of God – he is recognized and respected across the world.

Edgar Mayer

Dr Edgar Mayer is the Senior Pastor of the Living Grace Lutheran Church, Toowoomba, and serves as the Chair of Lutheran Renewal, a national renewal movement. He freely acknowledges that faith renewal, and especially an understanding of the Holy Spirit, has come to him through non-Lutheran pastors and church members. Therefore, the unity among Christians is dear to his heart, as he ministers through his books, conferences and giving leadership to Living Grace and Lutheran Renewal.

At last year’s conference, he led the session where hundreds of Lutherans publicly repented to their Pentecostal brothers and sisters in Christ. Lutherans were on their knees, and many were in tears, as they confessed their negative attitude and judgements toward Pentecostals. The next day, we celebrated Holy Communion together.

This day is for pastors and their spouses to

  • take time out and debrief,

  • receive ministry and a fresh infilling with the Holy Spirit,
  • grow and learn,
  • and wait on fresh revelation for the season ahead.

Dr Edgar Mayer will oversee the day, but Dr Rolland Baker will be available and minister to us, and the idea is to be in this together and do peer mentoring.
