For some time churches and mission societies have been faced with the challenge of reaching migrant communities in New Zealand with the Gospel. The Outside In Conference is an opportunity to focus attention on the growing number of newcomers to our shores and how ordinary Christians can be mobilised and equipped to welcome them and share the good news. The goal of the weekend is to see the church in NZ motivated, equipped and networked to welcome and reach diaspora communities.
The keynote speaker is Dr. David Cashin who has wide experience in living and serving cross culturally. Kiwis will tell the stories of how they are learning to relate to new migrant communities who are now their neighbours. There will also be opportunities during the conference to attend workshops and seminars designed to increase the skills of participants in cross cultural ministry.

Outside In is a community of churches, colleges, and missions committed to welcoming and supporting migrants to New Zealand. We promote events that train and equip New Zealanders in their efforts to be better hosts to diaspora people who now call New Zealand home. We welcome all followers of Jesus who live by his words, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me," (Matthew 25:40) to join us in our journey in mission.
