Cite is the national missions conference for academia. Take time at the end of the year to gather with Australia's Christian thinkers to be challenged, inspired, and equipped as ambassadors for Christ at the university and, through the university, to the world.
This year at Cite, our theological focus is the Holy Spirit, as Phillip Jensen leads us on an exploration of the 8th statement in the AFES Doctrinal Basis, "The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer."
Our evangelism stream will be taken by Sam Green, who will be helping us to understand our own faith in a way that better connects with and answers objections Muslims have to Christianity.
Finally, we will be joined by academic missionairies who have been or are using their PhD to go overseas to serve Jesus in universities around the world.
