A promotional 1 minute video has been released on YouTube - 'One Day in Melbourne—Evangelicals Online' - held on 16 April last at the Salvation Army headquarters in Blackburn.
One Day in Melbourne was industrial in nature but underlying evangelical – a one-day gathering for editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers—anyone in Christian media whose aim is to maximise the Gospel.
It's philosophy was to provide a top of-the-line presentation to the forgotten Christian media: Missionary/mission publication editors, bloggers and small Christian media.
This top of the line presentation ensured mission agencies received a thorough concordant.

The central theme, above all else, was "quality content". The 50 gathered represented 24 separate mission agencies along with bloggers and writers. The lunch was provided by Holy Trinity at Doncaster while the venue with a wonderful morning and afternoon tea was provided by the Salvation Army (Headquarters, Blackburn).
The Melbourne gathering wants it held again in 2017, while a "One Day in Sydney – Evangelicals Online" is set for Saturday 13 August.
