Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne Australia

UPDATE: We have put together a meetup in Melbourne. Here are the details:

Saturday, July 5, 2008
Cafe Lomah
169 Union Road Ascot Vale, VIC 3032


I’ll be leaving next week for a trip through Australia with Kevin Penry. We will be traveling around the country to meet with pastors and church leaders and also visit our friends at Hillsong Church.

If you are (or know) a pastor/church leader in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane…I’d love to meet and connect with as many people as possible while we are there. Below is a rough schedule of where/when (and our current availability) during our stay.

July 2nd - Sydney (full schedule, limited availability)
July 3rd - Brisbane/The Sunshine Coast (some availability to meet)
July 4th - The Gold Coast/Brisbane (open meetup at 7pm at the Hilton Brisbane)
July 5th - Melbourne (some availability, possible open meetup in the evening TBD)
July 6th - Sydney (at Hillsong Sunday night service)
July 7th-10th - Sydney (at Hillsong Conference, flexible schedule)

We have meetings setup with several pastors around the country, but I would love to connect with more. If you are available or if you have recommendations of people I should contact while we are there, please email me. In Australia, you can also reach me via phone by calling +61-29-0378330.

    Hi Bobby! You’re coming our way then huh? You’ll be blown away by the Hillsong Conference if your going to that. I attended it last year with about 30,000 others!

    I’m from Melbourne and would love to meet up. But seriously though, we are a small church plant of about 70 people and I doubt your limited time in Melbourne would allow us to meet.

    But I do hope you have a great time in this wonderful country of ours! Look forward to hearing how things went.

    Wow, sounds like a great trip. I was in Sydney and Auckland but it was many many years ago now, but I had a great time.

    We have two congregations…mostly young adults. We would love to meet up at the Hilton in Brisbane. Just turn up?

    Hi Bobby,

    We’d love to have you at our morning service on the 6th, our church is about a 15-20 min drive from Hillsong.

    We’re not a big church, but I believe we have a big heart for God.

    Here’s our website for more info:

    Hope you enjoy your trip!

    God bless

    I’d love to connect. I’ll contact you offline. I’m trying to setup a meetup in Melbourne.


    Yes, just show up at the Hilton at 7pm. It will just be an informal gathering in the lobby.


    I’d love to come, but we will be flying back from Melbourne in the morning. Perhaps we can connect that week? I am working with the guys at Hillsong on a time/place for a meetup in Sydney. Feel free to email me at with your details.
