CV Conference

Friday 30th September to Monday 3rd October, October Long Weekend.
Adare Conference Centre
, Victor Harbor.

Online registration will be opened in August.


CV stands for Christian Vocation

Our aim is to partner with churches to raise up faithful, passionate Christian leaders for Adelaide and the world.

CV Conference provides a rare and precious opportunity for you to take time out, away from daily responsibilities and distractions, to think and pray through your ministry plans for the future and answer the question: ‘Why not full-time gospel ministry?’

At CV Conference you’ll enjoy a variety of Bible talks, small group discussions, elective seminars and coaching. You’ll also have the opportunity to build relationships with like-minded Christian leaders, current and future, from all across South Australia.

Who should come?

CV is particularly for those who are open to considering the possibility of vocational ministry. We also welcome and encourage anyone with the following questions to attend:

  • What will I do for the rest of my life?
  • What gifts has God given me for Christian ministry?
  • Should I consider training for vocational ministry?
  • What am I willing to give up to preach the gospel?
  • What opportunities are available?
  • Who can help me make these decisions?

CV is also for those already in vocational ministry who long to see others join them!

Central Asia

I’d always thought that I would end up in some kind of Christian work, but thoughts and actions are two different things! It was at CV that I met real-life workers who put a face on Christian work for me, and that God took me beyond intention, to the point of committing to full-time vocational work.

FOCUS Flinders & St Matthew’s

We both desired to be faithful ministers of the gospel but were less clear about the when, where, how, and to whom. CV was instrumental in helping us to answer some of these questions and then to take steps towards seeing it happen. We feel deeply indebted to CV and thoroughly recommend it for anyone who is serious about thinking through what it means to serve God with our whole lives.


150x150-RussDarren & Jude Russ

Associate Pastor, Trinity Mount Barker

We found ourselves considering full-time Gospel ministry in our mid-forties and were able to attend CV Conference together in 2011. We always thank God for having such a great opportunity to receive uplifting teaching from His word, to be encouraged by like-minded people and benefit from great practical advice through the one-on-one coaching sessions. It really clarified so many questions and encouraged us in our decision making journey.

AFES Staff Worker, Adelaide University

CV gave me space each year to deliberately consider how I could best serve God and his people in the longer-term, and what it would take to make that happen. The coaching times are an amazing opportunity!

Ministry Apprentice, FOCUS Adelaide

CV is a permanent fixture on my calendar! On a personal level, it is wonderfully refreshing to spend a weekend away to spend time considering how I can best use my time and abilities to serve God faithfully. It is amazing to hear from God’s Word and draw from the wisdom and experience of other Christians. It has also been instrumental in my marriage, as it has encouraged and challenged us as a couple to plan our future around the call of Christ.

Who is CV?

CV is a fellowship of evangelical Christians who consider gospel ministry an important priority.

We aim, through God’s mercy, to partner with churches to raise faithful and able servants of the gospel, whether they’re ordained or lay and in local or overseas ministries.

Men and women with gifts of leadership, Bible teaching, evangelism and a passion to see the gospel preached are urgently needed in our world – the Lord’s harvest is plenty, but the workers are few.

We are passionate about seeing the next generation of gospel workers encouraged, challenged and mentored as they pray and plan for an exciting and spiritually rewarding life of gospel ministry.

CV Conference also aims to gather those already in full-time ministry so that they can train and encourage this next generation.

Whatever stage a person has reached in considering gospel ministry, CV aims to help them progress in their thinking, planning and taking action.
