Rev Bob Thomas MC for One Day in Melbourne with John Sandeman editor Eternity
John Sandeman and his Eternity team are taking the morning session of the 2017 'One Day in Melbourne' scheduled for Saturday 3 June after last year's inaugural on-line media presentations applauded as "an astonishing and remarkable day" by the 50 mission agency representatives and bloggers who attended.
Eternity magazine (online and hard copy) is produced by the Bible Society with John Sanderson initiated it after three decades working for Fairfax as a top line journalist.
John Sandeman and his team are all given their time to provide the very best 'One Day in Melbourne' gathering for editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers—anyone in Christian media whose aim is to maximise the Gospel.
Moreover John has a special passion for the editors of Christian mission societies and the many smaller forgotten Christian media outlets. It's philosophy is to provide a top of-the-line presentation to the forgotten Christian media: Missionary/mission publication editors, bloggers and small Christian media.
The top of the line presenters give their time at no cost so as to ensure such mission agencies received a thorough concordant. And it's close to Tullamarine Airport, Mooney Ponds Salvation Army - 880 Mount Alexander Rd

The idea is to start and finish in order that interstate registrations can fly into Melbourne and fly home - all on the same day – One Day in Melbourne. We also realise others may make it a weekend in Melbourne and stay over for a myriad of purposes.
One Day in Melbourne 2016
The sessions 'last year' were interactive whereby during presentations there was response and, moreover "response there was". Again this will be a feature of 'One Day in Melbourne' along with small groups so as to gain as much as possible from the sessions.
This is particularly important for mission publication editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers.
The focus is on the forgotten Christian media, all those small publications – mostly today on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience and therefore restrictions.
