Growing Disciples for Redemptive Influence in today’s world.

We live in a rapidly shifting cultural context.

The number of people in our communities or workplaces who have any connection with the church, or any foundational understanding of the Christian story, is decreasing.

In this cultural context we need followers of Jesus who are deeply rooted in the Christian story, and able to: 

  • Embody the way of Jesus and witness to Jesus through their whole lives.
  • Create tangible expressions of the way of Jesus, so that others in their context can touch, taste, see and experience what life with Jesus is like.
  • Disrupt brokenness with redemptive action, creating real solutions to the challenges we face in society.

We need what the theologian Miroslav Volf referred to as a ‘’Thick Faith’’.

One that is firm and courageous, and encompasses all of life. Yet many of our current models for growing disciples were built for a different cultural moment.

To see a different kind of disciple, we need to re-imagine our approaches to growing disciples.  

Come to Seed Summit in 2023. Together, using Seed’s Redemptive Design Framework, we’ll explore approaches to discipleship that make a tangible difference in our world.

Growing our individual and
collective capacity to
influence redemptive change
in society.
More than a conference.

Summit is not a conference.

Rather, we have intentionally designed 2 days for Christian changemakers to gather, grow and participate in redemptive design processes together.

Summit is a time to come together as a Seed community.

It’s an opportunity for us to spur each other on, growing deeper with Jesus, while also growing our individual and collective capacity to influence redemptive change in society.

Summit is an invitation-only event, and we would love for you to come and be with us, bringing all of who you are to the table, where we can be a blessing to each other.

    How do I get to Summit?

    Public transport is very convenient for Summit with North Sydney Train Station located only a 5 minute walk away from Mary Mackillop Place along with bus stops along Pacific highway that are also a short walk. There is paid/timed parking on the surrounding streets.

    I would love to come to Summit but the price is just out of range for me.

    While we have taken measures to make Summit both an affordable and quality 2-day program, please get in touch at if you are unable to afford the full cost of Summit. We would love for you to join us, and will do what we can to make that possible.
