This is our biggest & best conference yet!
We are incredibly fortunate to be hearing from a range of outstanding people from within the Vineyard Movement!
Putty Putman is a physicist-turned-pastor-turned-entrepreneur-turned-author! He’s the Founding Director and main speaker of the School of Kingdom Ministry in Urbana, Illinois. He also serves in leadership roles on both the preaching and executive teams at the Vineyard Church of Central Illinois. Putty comes highly recommended to us after spending some time with our whānau across the ditch, Vineyard Australia.
Alexander Venter is a phenomenal pastor, theologian, teacher, and communicator. Alexander brought such insight, wisdom, and encouragement when he was with us last year at our National Leaders Conference. We are so excited to have him back with us!

They began ministry in their early twenties with the Uniting Church in Australia. They have been actively serving and participating in the life of God across the Australian Vineyard movement since 1997. They also continue to serve as Senior Pastors of Pine Rivers Vineyard Church, north of Brisbane in Queensland. We are thrilled to have them with us at this year's conference!
