neoNights 2019

neoNights were a new initiative for neoLeader in 2018. We’re excited to be able to bring neoNights back again in 2019!

neoNights aim to develop young leaders on a deeper level by focusing on one leadership topic at a time. We aim to provide young leaders with practical tools to equip them in their work, study and/or ministry leadership.

neoNights will be hosted by churches in the North, South and West regions of Brisbane and in Toowoomba. These nights will run as free, non-ticketed workshops where you can listen, engage in discussions and ask questions from experienced leaders, pastors and young adults. These nights are also a great opportunity to develop relationships with other young adults and churches in these regions.



Gospel centred leadership in the work place

Equipping young leaders to confidently lead and influence their work places

This year our neoNight workshops aim to equip young adults to confidently lead and influence their work places. We’ll be looking at how we follow Christ and lead like Christ in the work place, and tackling questions such as:

How do we practically express or live out the Gospel at work?
How does the Gospel influence the way I lead in my workplace?
What we can do practically to tackle challenges as leaders who are grounded in the Gospel?

So whatever stage you are at in the leadership journey and wherever you lead, we’d love to see you there! Dates and more information for each neoNight are available below.

Guest Speaker Lisa West-Newman

Lisa West-Newman is passionate Jesus-follower who thinks the grace of God is astoundingly generous and impacts every aspect of our lives.

After a policy-related career within government, Lisa with her husband Steve and young children followed a specific call by God to serve in Cambodia for 10 years.  Here she discovered that cross-cultural work is the same as “normal” work, just with different challenges.

In Australia, Lisa has found her ideal vocation.  She is the Young Adult Consultant for Global Interaction in Queensland where she drinks too much coffee with young people as they discern their part in empowering communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.

Lisa loves being a Mum to her three teenagers, filling her shelves with interesting books (that she hopes to read some day), and serving on the Board of an empowering development organisation.  She’s also stoked that opp shopping has become trendy because she would do it anyway.
