About the convention

Purpose of the convention

“To provide a program of Conventions and other Bible teaching activities, to encourage Christians and churches, in the Riverina and beyond, to recognise the power and strength of God’s word”.

"Our prayer for this year’s convention is our hearts and minds would be captivated with a big vision of Jesus as Lord and Saviour."

John Woodhouse



John and his wife Moya have served the Lord in a number of contexts, including teaching at Moore College in Sydney and pastoral ministry at Christ Church, St Ives. They have four adult children and quite a few grandchildren. John loves studying the Bible and sharing what he has learnt about the Lord Jesus Christ with others. This has led to writing a few books exploring 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, Colossians and Philemon. John and Moya are currently enjoying the fellowship of God’s people that meets at Auburn Anglican Church.
