Last week I had the privilege of attending Hillsong Conference 2012 in Sydney. I went as part of a group of around 70 students from Genesis Christian College as well as about 20 people from BPCC. This year was my fourth time attending the conference so I knew what was coming; passionate worship, powerful teaching, helpful elective sessions and way too much McDonalds.
However the thing that never ceases to amaze me about Hillsong Conference is the amazing spirit of unity amongst the people in attendance. For those of you that don’t know, Hillsong Conference is a gathering of roughly 20,000 believers (mostly) who all represent hundreds of different churches and many different denominations and ministries. In fact, during one of the morning rallies, Hillsong Lead Pastor Joel A’Bell, shared with us the different denominations that were present at the conference; Catholic to Charismatic, Baptist to Brethren, Salvation Army to Seventh Day Adventist, Presbyterian to Pentecostal.
