Australia Bound!

Tonight my wife Martha and I get on a plane and travel to the other side of the planet…Sydney, Australia. We have been invited by Nick and Christine Caine to attend the Hillsong Church Conference in Sydney, Australia.

Nick and Christine were recently at our church and are on the pastoral staff at Hillsong Church. They are dynamic leaders that travel around the world and oversee the Hillsong Network as well as several other ministries. (to learn more about their ministry check out We will be traveling to the Outback with some good friends… Dino Rizzo, Pastor of Healing Place Church, Baton Rouge, LA, John Siebeling, Pastor of The Life Church of Memphis, and Stovall Weems Pastor of Celebration Church, Jacksonville, FL.
Brian and Bobbie Houston are the Founding and Senior Pastors at Hillsong Church, a church that has grown from a handful of people to over 25,000 people with campuses in Sydney, London and Kiev. We are so pumped to have the privilege of experiencing this dynamic church that is influencing church life around the world!
