What is The Surrender Conference?

SURRENDER’s primary purpose is to motivate emerging generations across the wider church to move from interest to action by becoming personally involved in expressions of Christ’s call to the least, the last and the lost.

At the core of SURRENDER is the relationship with and involvement of the Indigenous Australian people of this land.
