“Very encouraging to know about The Lord’s work in other areas of NZ.”
“This conference has been such an incredible blessing to my soul. Of the two conferences we travel to, STAND by far has been our favourite.”
“The messages were once again ‘spot on’ – relevant, cogent and greatly impacting.”
“It was a life changing experience. Keep preaching the word of God and nothing else!”
Stand for the Gospel is a weekend conference that was started in 2010 with a vision to serve the church in New Zealand, across denominations around the unity of the Gospel. We celebrate its life transforming power and take up the call to proclaim it to all people, calling all people to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
The conference is purposely simple:
Conferences can be a drain on time and resources. They can also be a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and spiritual feeding. We pray Stand for the Gospel falls into the second category, and hope that you’ll join us!
