CAMPUS CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT CONFERENCE

Campus Christian Movement Student Conference 2013


Our annual CCM student conference, themed ‘Change Your World’, was held on 6-7 July 2013 at Watson Convention Park in Brisbane. We saw a total of 227 delegates; mainly students from The University of Queensland (UQ) and the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). In addition, we welcomed a couple of interstate delegates at our conference this year. 

We had a total of three sessions, and many were blessed by what our pastor and leaders shared. We were challenged to take on the role of a true blue world-changer by learning about the characteristics one needs to change the world. Focus was also placed on the setting our hearts right before God. As Pastor Joshua Chee mentioned, “The throne of our heart will direct our life”. Furthermore, the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the foundation of the Word, and the commitment to serve God’s mission were highlighted as essentials to grow to be a world-changer. Many hearts were ministered during the conference, and we believed that seeds were deposited in many lives. It was an enriching time as we soaked ourselves in the word of God.

During one of the sessions, we had a feet-washing ceremony, and it was one of the main highlights of the conference. It brought new revelations regarding leadership. Barriers were broken between mentors and mentees and there were such a unity of hearts. It was truly a humbling experience to see our leaders serve His people, and it inspired many to do likewise.

Spirit-filled praise and worship songs, fun-packed outdoor activities, encouraging testimonies, good fellowship… what could be a better way to start off our semester break? All of us had a great (but tiring) time, and we just want to thank God for all that He did in those two days. The conference might have come to a close but we know that things that were deposited will continue to grow for His purposes and ways. To God be the glory.
