Rev Bob Thnomas MC for One Day in Melbourne with Eternity editor John Sandeman
One Day in Melbourne for 2018 is on the 19 May at the Craigieburn Salvation Army – 75 Interlink Dr, Craigieburn, 20 minutes from Melbourne airport.
This is the 3rd annual One Day in Melbourne 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 on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience.
The top of the line presenters give their time at no cost so as to ensure such mission agencies received a thorough concordant.

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.
The sessions are interactive whereby during presentations for responses. 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.
