This three-night course, developed by international debt counseling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP), offers a smart, simple way for people to build, balance, and stick to their budgets. It comes with access to an online money management tool that takes the work out of creating—and implementing—a budget.
This course will help you prioritise the things that are important to you, manage any debt that you have, live well within your means and save for your future—just as it has for thousands of New Zealanders!

The forum has been specifically designed to assist and encourage churches and ministries starting or developing their own sites as an extension of their existing ministries and provide opportunities for new ones through a community based environment where experts, novices and everyone in-between can collaborate to provide their front line workers with a powerful online presence.
In contrast to usual social media platforms, forums allow for better communication and sharing, searching and retention of information.
There are 2 main forums.
A church websites one which provides information on getting a website either through official denominational or private business listings with contact information; ideas and inspiration; links; resources; coding and help.
The second area of the forum is dedicated to resources, existing or personally developed by members not specifically related to web ministry and currently separated into sub forums for Adventist Media, Evangelism, General (for everything else), Music, Sabbath School, Technology and Treasury.
If you could mention this to your relevant departments, churches and ministries, via email, a brief promotion in your local publication or newsletter it would be greatly appreciated.
Currently the forum is in it’s infancy having only begun April 22 and a free-time project at that; we have no official standing or support from the church but hopefully that will change as people catch the vision of our purpose. Some good content is already there and only growth and better things are anticipated as many more come on board to share & grow.

“We realize that major decisions need to be made at General Conference Session and different opinions need to be heard,” says Jerry Page, General Conference Ministerial Association Secretary. “We are praying that these vital meetings will be a time when God breaks through in the hearts of individuals and, as in the Book of Acts, ignites a passion for sharing the Good News with everyone in the world.” You are invited to register at www.100DaysofPrayer.org, and receive a daily blog and specific items to pray for each day.
What Might Have Been
After the 1901 General Conference Session, Ellen White had a vision in which she witnessed those in the meetings responding to the Holy Spirit to be reconciled through humility, confession of sins and removal of barriers between each other. This was followed by earnest prayer, songs of praise, and the evident presence of the Holy Spirit. (See Testimonies, Vol. 8, pp. 104-106.)
When she woke from the vision, Mrs. White realized this breakthrough had not happened as God intended. Hardhearted participants prevented the unity God so desired. Deeply disappointed, she understood that the Lord could have come in their lifetime! But His people did not surrender their thoughts and opinions to the leading of the Holy Spirit. You can see a 28-minute video reenactment of the vision at www.100DaysofPrayer.org.
It Still Can Be!
“What might have been” for 1901, still can be for 2015! Jesus invites us to unite together, and pray for His power to break through the hearts of individuals and usher in His Second Coming. Will you invite your family, friends, and church members to join in 100 Days of Prayer, seeking God’s will for the General Conference Session?

Adolescence can be an exciting but challenging time for teens and their parents/care-givers! It demands new ways of relating to changing rules and divergent opinions. It can often be a time of turmoil, confusion and broken friendships. The counselling room can also be a challenging place for the adolescent and the therapist.
The 29th National Christian Family Conference will focus on key issues facing teens and those who care for them. Australian specialists will present the latest research in the fields of parenting, adolescent mental health, and the digital age and cyberspace-safety, as well as sharing important strategies that might assist teens and their carers in negotiating these potentially difficult years.
