Christians from all denominations are invited to attend a conference on spiritual healing in Melbourne this October.
The 2017 OSL Healing Ministries conference will be held at the Waverley International Hotel in Glen Waverley from 2-6 October. The conference takes place once every three years and the theme for the 2017 event is “Walking in Faith into the Future”.
OSL Healing Ministries was formerly known as the Order of St Luke (OSL), named after ‘the beloved physician’ in the Bible, before it formally changed its name in 2009.
It is an ecumenical organisation dedicated to supporting healing ministries in churches throughout the world.
The Pearce Memorial Lecture is presented at every conference in tribute to the late Andrew Pearce, a former national chaplain of the Order. This year it will be delivered by John Harrower, former Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, on the topic of dealing with trauma.
Four keynote speakers will run workshops.
Rev Bruce Reekie will speak on the theology of healing and Pastor Jason Rawlings will tackle the theme “Keys to unlock Australia”.
The other speakers are Dr Grant Bickerton, a Christian psychologist, and Rev Bill Sim, a chaplain from OSL New Zealand.
The conference will include daily Bible studies led by Anglican minister Rev Geoff McAuliffe, who will also be inducted as the incoming OSL Healing Ministries national chaplain at the conference.
Participants can join in the full four-day program or attend single day and evening sessions.
Registration forms and details can be obtained by contacting the OSL Healing Ministries acting secretary on (03) 9837 5097 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the Victorian State Chaplain, Rev Lloyd George, on 0427 460 485.
