Championing the cause of the local church everywhere
￼Listen to the Wind Words,
the Spirit blowing through the churches.
In 1 Samuel 3:10 is says, “The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, Samuel! Samuel! Then Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening’”.
SPEAK, WE’RE LISTENING – is a declaration that we are indeed, listening.
Like Samuel, the LORD has come many times, spoken many times and (hopefully) had our response many times, but this is an eternal conversation that involves not only personal relationship, but also the wellbeing and salvation of others. In the midst of a world saturated with voices and noise, the Voice we long for is His.
We are trusting God’s Spirit to enable us to create the most perfect gathering in 2015. As always we will labor to bring the finest Bible teachers,
Kingdom-inspirers and creative- innovators to the Hillsong Conference, in order that you, your family and your team are blessed. Our prayer is that the Church, local and global, will continue to rise in her full stature and that the Harvest He longs for will not be disappointed.
“Speak Lord, we’re listening” is perfect language and a perfect stance for what lies ahead. We trust you will join us – the invitation is yours.
With love and affection,
BRIAN AND BOBBIE HOUSTON

Streams & Masterclasses.
At Hillsong Conference each year, our goal is to Champion the Cause of Local Churches Everywhere. One way we do this is through our Streams and Masterclasses. These practical sessions have been designed and crafted specifically with you in mind! Whatever area of church life you find yourself in there is a Masterclass aimed to encourage and empower you to build your local Church and see change in your community.
These streams are broken down into 3 different categories that we feel encompass a well-rounded church:
The Lead stream is created to equip many types of leaders: from senior leadership, team leadership, women in leadership, kids, youth, to business leadership. Each Masterclass is crafted to suit a more intimate audience and many times opens up to Q&A with many of our key team and guest speakers that host these sessions.
The Create stream holds sessions to practically equip and inspire creatives of all kinds. Create masterclasses address a wide variety of creative elements, including: Worship, Songwriting, Stage Design, Graphic Design, Production, TV&Film, Dance, Photography, and many many more.
The Help stream is for those passionate about making an impact outside the four walls of the church. This stream aims to equip churches, and individuals with knowledge and practical tools to make a difference. Topics include missions, community outreach, eliminating human trafficking, and more.
