Outback School of Missions

Outback Summer School of Missions January/February 2024

Location – Alice Springs, Central Australia

Are you ready to come deep into the heart of our nation to dive deep and deeper into the heart of Jesus? Are you feeling called to missions?  To reach a people group you weren’t born into?  Iris Alice Springs is hosting another ‘Outback summer school of missions’ –  starting on the evening of Sunday January 28th until Monday 12th February 2024.

There will be fire in the heart and fire in your heart, as, during this two weeks you will have the chance to meet, firstly with God, setting yourself apart to be with Him at the start of a new year. You will also meet with other believers who share a similar heart for missions as well as learn from generals in the faith with huge experience in ministry and missions from around the globe… all in the setting of our glorious outback town, rich in the beauty, challenge, language, colour, life and culture of our local Central Australian Aboriginal people -who will be some of our greatest teachers during the time.

Maybe you’re indigenous to another part of Australia…our family here would love to meet you and hear from you too! We will have extended times of worship and seeking God and just enjoying Him as well as learning times, listening times, Q&A times, practical and outreach times.

This school is not just for those called long term to the Outback but for anyone who loves Jesus and wants to learn about how to love more. Our country is positioned right under some hugely populated areas of south east Asia and the gospel needs to go out- everywhere! Just might the heart land of Australia be a place of family and of sending, where God will set hearts on fire and shoot one’s forth like fiery arrows, to bring His message and light to the darkness? Equally, this time will inspire and encourage people, whether called to remote or overseas mission or for local missions to their current communities-wherever you are!

At Iris we’re empowered by the love of God to stop for the one in need. We believe God is bringing us this January/February into a Hosea 2:14 moment where He is alluring those He has called, into this desert place, by His love, to speak to you. Are you ready?!

What is it that has sustained some of our faith heroes living and serving cross culturally for generations?  What drives people to give up comfort, land, house, family etc and move to other places and nations?  If you’ve been asking for the next step but you’re not sure what it is, this could be it! We can’t wait to meet you!

PS Calling all Iris alumni from the north, the south, the east and west!!
Are you an alumni of an Iris Global school? Wherever, you’re from (Australia or beyond!) we would love to hear from you as we are hoping to have a reunion and to use this two week time to gather and connect Iris family to each other in Australia.
Let’s all get excited for how God is going to meet with, touch and change us all this coming summer. We will never be the same!
