The Justice Conference: Melbourne

  • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 1 Convention Centre Place South Wharf, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Revelation 21:5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” In the midst of a fractured and crumbling world we could be forgiven for following a narrative of failure and helplessness. But God is writing a different story. It is a story of restoration and renewal and if we look amongst the rubble we begin to unearth it. The Justice Conference is a global movement, uniting followers of Christ as they pursue justice in their contexts. We bring together the local church to be equipped and encouraged as they hear from leading theologians, practitioners and artists. Will you join us?

Justice Conferences provide moments which serve the global biblical justice movement. Through national events these conferences bring together thousands of Christ-followers to live out the message of Jesus and transform their communities by making justice a way of life. 

Founded in 2010 by a group of like-minded friends in Bend, Oregon (USA) with a dream of impacting a generation for justice, the influence of The Justice Conference continues to grow. Gatherings are now hosted in the USA (several cities), Asia (Hong Kong), Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, South Africa, UK and Norway. Through the conference, thousands of Christians have been challenged and encouraged to live out the message of Jesus and transform their communities by making justice a way of life.

The Justice Conference brings together the Church to engage with the theology of justice. Without a proper theology of justice, our efforts fall apart into disconnected causes rather than being strung together into an inseparable whole.  It speaks to the fullness of biblical justice—that justice is not only good works, but also essential to our knowledge of God and our understanding of what it means to be fully human.

In Australia, The Justice Conference started in 2015 and has run annually in the years since. The conference is hosted by TEAR Australia in partnership with like-minded organisations.
