Build Up is an exciting new event format from Katoomba Christian Convention.
As part of its relaunched men’s ministry, Build Up will adopt a similar style to the renowned TED talks, as men share personal stories with practical wisdom for living as a Christian man.
In the morning of BASECAMP: City, men hear short 12-minute talks as men share their experiences and practical wisdom for living as a Christian man.
6 men will share their stories in this session, with time included for questions. Topics include:
“Two Big C’s”
Where Leigh Hatcher will share lessons of faith and life from more than two years of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and the past two years with Prostate Cancer.
“What persecuted Christians in the Middle East taught me about hope”
Where Carlos Aguilera will share what he learned about hope as he spent time with persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

Katoomba Christian Convention has compiled a powerful new infographic entitled “10 statistics about Australian men”. The statistics, each from reputable sources, describe some of the challenges facing men in Australia today.
• 80% of suicides in Australia are by men.
• Up to 59% of men feel they are not part of a community.
• One in ﬁve Australian children lives with only one natural parent. In 81% of cases, the absent parent is the father.
• Men are lonelier than women from early adulthood right through to their seventies.
• Women are more likely to own their own Bible than men (51% v 39%).
These statistics have been compiled in the lead-up to the BASECAMP men’s convention in Katoomba and Sydney this August. Event Director, Steven Kryger says:
“These statistics are timely reminder of the challenges facing men in Australia today. BASECAMP is an event that will bring together men from across generations to build relationships and encourage men to keep going. Most of all, we pray that as men hear from God at this event, their strength will be renewed and their hope will be found by looking to Him.”
More than 2500 men have registered for BASECAMP, and registrations are still open.
