Conference Host

CMA is a charity serving 1700 members (church, ministry and business leaders) around Australia. We seek to advance ministry by maximising the effectiveness of leadership, governance and management in Christian churches and organisations. We do this by providing resources, training and networking across a range of areas like boards, people, money, risk, strategy and communications. Our firm belief is that more people will experience the love and mercy of God in this world, and more people will enter into a relationship with God for all of eternity, if our churches, schools and organisations can lead, govern and manage more effectively. To this end, we have also formed the CMA Standards Council, Q4 (Rethinking Retirement) and, in partnership with Korus Connect, The Board Internship.

Conference Host

CMA Standards Council
Our mission is to help build faith and trust in Christian organisations, be they churches, charities, schools or otherwise, to enable them to achieve more effective outcomes.

We believe that the love and teachings of Jesus are vital for our world to experience and understand, and therefore we believe that Christian organisations and churches perform a valuable role in society. Our desire is that these organisations are effective in pursing their mission, and that they govern and account for themselves in a manner that stands up to public scrutiny. Christian organisations should be the standard-setters in terms of impeccable corporate behaviour, and the CMA Standards Council exists to help the Christian sector meet that high standard.

Compassion Australia

As part of Compassion International, a global network of more than 12 funding countries and 25 developing countries, Compassion Australia is a Christian holistic child development and child advocacy ministry. We are committed to working in partnership with Australian churches, businesses and schools to foster the spiritual, economic, socio-emotional and physical development of children living in poverty.

Worldwide, 385 million children live in extreme poverty. Poverty robs children of their basic rights to learn, play and grow. In its ugliest form, poverty can lead to exploitation, child labour and even death. It's unacceptable.

That's why our Child Sponsorship Program exists. Because more powerful than poverty is the hope of Jesus, the care of a local church and the encouragement of you: a loving sponsor.
