ICCM AU Online for 2021

It has been a long while since we’ve had an Australian conference. Since all we can do is online, I thought we would organise a small online event over 3 weeks to encourage each other in our ministry and share knowledge. The main content will be the Keynotes from ICCM USA, by Tim Young –

Plugging in when the power is out

More about the keynotes

ICCM AU 2021 Format

We will meet on 3 Friday afternoons, starting with lunch together September  3rd ,10th, 17th  from 12:30pm until  3:00pm AEST. The focus is more on relationships and supporting each other than the technology, but we’ll have a bit of that as well.

  • 15min Catchup while people start lunch
  • approx 1 hour (40 – 60 min) Keynotes from USA ICCM – Plugging in when the Power is out – Tim Young
  • 20-30 min prayer triplets
  • 30 min presentation by a member/ discussion

How can you I help?

  1. Set aside the time now in your calendar.
  2. Offer to present one of the short topics.
    Best if it is something you’ve been learning that will help others, but can also be a technical update or discussion on helpful topic, eg cloud systems, Cyber Security, ideal missionary computer setup. Email me if you can help.
  3. Come prepared to share

Tim Young is a field consultant with LightSys Technology Services, spending between 6 and 8 months a year visiting different ministries. Tim has visited over 180 distinct mission offices in 18 countries, working with the different IT staff at these locations. With that, he knows that most techies deal with a lot of different stresses, common to IT people. Tim’s gifting is in encouragement, and has found that, while most people enjoy Tim visiting to help with their technology, the main thing people thank him for is the encouragement he brings.


Your planning committee

Lots of work is needed to bring together a conference and the committee meets once a month or so for most of the year to organise speakers, logistics etc for the conference.

Your committee is David Miller, Nigel Gorry and Steve.
