News from Australia
C3 Australia is in a great place! Our Area Directors met earlier this year and let me tell you, there is such strength, excitement and love in our women leaders!
We have 12 regions within Australia and fantastic things are happening across the country. I am so excited about what God is doing amongst us – raising up women leaders, activating people into their calling, mobilising his army of women to be all that God wants them to be.
We are seeing diverse gatherings of women of all ages at conferences, special events and in small groups. Let me highlight some of the things that are happening with just a few of our champion leaders:
Carolyn Carrello, Senior Minister of C3 Rockingham, WA, hosts an annual Everywoman conference – this year seeing over 250 people at their “Brave Conference”. Carolyn has a beautiful heart to see women equipped and empowered to live life the way God planned for them.
Deb White, Senior Minister of C3 Monash, ACT, has hosted Vicki Simpson and Janine Kubala for her Everywoman Nights for women of all ages and is starting a Women’s 24 in May. She also brings a large contingent of women to Sydney for the Everywoman Conference each year.
Katrina Humble, Senior Minister of C3 Port Macquarie, NSW, has started a community project called Reap. This is a food rescue program which has rescued 7507kgs worth of food, helped create 25,000 meals and saved charities in Greater Port Macquarie nearly $125,000. It is a brilliant initiative which is benefiting people in need in their local community.
Nicola Gibb is an emerging voice empowering evangelists across our movement. She is the National Evangelist for Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and has a wonderful passion for reaching the lost. She has spoken in many of our C3 churches and her passion is contagious!
Anna Giles, Senior Minister of C3 Cairns, QLD, has an annual C3 Everywoman gathering for the Far North Queensland C3 churches who gather their beautiful women together for an island getaway, a perfect opportunity to connect those living in isolated communities.
Vicki Simpson is an incredible prophetic voice who has a passion to raise up women to help find their voice. She is a popular speaker at churches, conferences and women’s events and is much-loved everywhere she goes. Empowering!
Janine Kubala continues to minister as a healing evangelist in a powerful yet beautiful way. Her testimony of healing and salvation touches and inspires. She has a beautiful heart and brings love and encouragement to everyone she meets.
Julie Williams, Senior Minister of C3 Adelaide Hills, SA, will be running their 15th Everywoman Conference this year! This is a gathering of South Australian women who are hungry to grow closer to God and connect with each other.
I love seeing the unique gifts within our women being utilised to serve, minister and lead the women of our churches and communities. I feel so privileged to work alongside all of our women in seeing our churches built and the Kingdom of God advanced.
