Discovering more about faith formation, culture and the Story of God.

Trav Johnson runs AccessTheStory - a fresh Aussie not-for-profit committed to immersing an emerging generation in a story that is beyond them.

"Most Australian young people don't see the relevance of the Christian narrative, so we are helping Christian Communities cultivate learning practice that enables young people to 'find faith through God’s Story'
- discovering who they truly are and how they fit in the world."

Sage, Shepherd, Pioneer - Bekk Sellars
"In all my times of meeting people - especially in my local area - I haven't really met anyone who hates God.  A lot of people hate Christians.  But a lot of people just want someone to care, or be interested in them." Bekk Sellars is no stranger to stepping into unchartered waters when it comes to reaching people with God's love - serving young people in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, she'll admit she's often tired, but her perspective on mission is sharp, and her heart for others is large. I am always encouraged through the stories she tells - here's an insight into what makes Bekk tick!

DISCIPLESHIP: more than a buzz-word
"Rather than looking for the silver bullet, we need to come back to our faith, and humble ourselves before God." "We're not actually important enough to stuff up God's plans." Beth Hoy shares her stories, frustrations, insights, and hopes for how we might see followers of Jesus raised up from the next generation. Beth is the Generations Facilitator for Baptist Churches in South Australia, and she is living out the message she carries to emerging leaders.
