Once again, two of Press Service International’s young writers will be covering for Christian Today the Hillsong 2019 conference.
Joseph Kolapudi from Brisbane and Grace Mathew, Sydney will be there from start to finish - Tuesday 9 July to Friday 12 July at the Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney. Joseph Kolapudi covered Hillsong 2017 but was overseas last year and will send in a daily article. Grace has been covering Hillsong since 2010 and sends in two feature articles. Both are accredited by Hillsong’s media arm, Mercer Media.
Joseph Kolapudi is a TCK born in Australia to Indian parents, and returned from California where he was studying theology at Fuller; currently, he is working with a missions agency, continuing his love of writing by contributing to PSI’s young writers.
Grace Mathew is a Sydney-based writer, graduate of International and Global Studies at the University of Sydney and recipient of Goldman Sachs Global Leadership Award. Grace has been with Press Service International since 2009 when PSI was initiated.
Hillsong Conference is all about championing the cause of THE Church of Jesus Christ — across every nation, denomination, age and background.
It is for people who are passionate about the local church and the call of the Kingdom of God. This conference gathers the greater church, inspires fresh vision and hope for the future, and equips every individual to walk out the call of God on their life.
It inspires leaders and believers alike to make a difference in their sphere of influence for Kingdom’s cause. It equips the church with God-breathed sessions, practical tools and relational connection.
You’re invited to join your hosts pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, Global Senior Pastors of Hillsong Church, at Hillsong Conference Sydney at Qudos Bank Arena – the largest indoor entertainment arena in Australia or at Hillsong Conference London in the O2 Arena!
Running along side Hillsong 2019 is the Young and Free conference for Grades 7-12.
