Elevation is an amazing training experience that will inspire and equip you for ministry with children, youth and families. It’s a chance to learn some new skills, discover some great resources and be inspired by experienced trainers.

Whether you’re a parent, a school teacher, a youth leader, a pastor, Sunday school teacher or a church council member – we guarantee that Elevation will teach you something new and inspire you to keep serving!

We’ve been blessed to pull together a great elective program for Elevation18. There are some great new electives (and some returning favourites) to consider and importantly every single elective will be facilitated by a passionate trainer who has tested their content in the field. Come ready to learn practical skills and ideas that you can use straight away!

Like all good things in life, Elevation is best enjoyed with friends and colleagues. We encourage you to maximise the impact of the training by bringing your ministry team or some friends who you can debrief the day with and together consider potential changes to your local ministry practice.

We look forward to welcoming you at Elevation18!

Keynote Speaker - Andy Gourley

We're thrilled this year to have Andy Gourley joining us at Elevation18 to share his wisdom and experience during our morning keynote. Andy is the Founder and CEO of Red Frogs Australia Chaplaincy Network and is an incredibly inspiring ministry leader. He started the Red Frog Program in 1997, after seeing the need for a chaplaincy service to safeguard teenagers and young adults.

This Chaplaincy Network is now the largest support network in Australia for schoolies, festivals and universities students. Currently the Red Frog Chaplaincy program for Schoolies is located in 17 different locations around Australia and coordinates over 4000 volunteers to run these programs.

Andy has developed the Red Frog program internationally to other countries such as Canada, UK, South Africa, New Zealand, and Poland. The Red Frog Chaplaincy Network also includes programs that support Festivals, Sports and Skateboarding events.

Guest Performer - Dan Warlow

We're thrilled to announce that Dan Warlow, popular Christian Kids Music artist and entertainer, will be joining us again at Elevation 2018. Dan delivered a great keynote last year and is back to lead us in worship in the morning and closing sessions. Dan is a gifted performer who is able to present the Christian faith in a way that connects with children (and adults - as 2017 attendees can attest!). You can find out more about Dan and his ministry at www.danwarlow.com.


We're very excited about the elective program for 2018. There are lots of great options available for new leaders and experienced leaders - something for everyone to be inspired and grow! The program is outlined below and you'll find more detail about the elective and the trainer by downloading the full elective descriptions here.
