Internationally-acclaimed US leader and author Tom White visited 11 Australian cities last month, encouraging civic and church leaders to work together for the benefit of their communities.

Tom’s visit to Toowoomba included a civic dinner for community leaders, a meeting with the Christian Leaders Network, and a public meeting at Rangeville Community Church.

On each occasion, he praised community and church leaders for their co-operation in working together.

“The key element of Tom’s visit was the encouragement that he brought to leaders to continue the journey to church unity and effective mission to the city,” said Ps Ian Shelton from Toowoomba City Church.

“In a challenging day for Christianity encouragement is really appreciated. Tom’s emphasis on the need for visionary and strategic leadership was also instructive.”

A plan is now developing to engage city and church leaders in a more intentional manner.

“Christianity is for the public square not to be hidden behind church walls,” said Ps. Ian.
