KCC is pleased to invite Kanisha Raffel as a guest speaker for Onward 17. Raffel will be speaking in the Adults and Young Adults program both held on Saturday 24 June.
Raffel is a well known preacher and social commentator and currently serves as the Anglican Dean in Sydney. He was born to Sri Lankan parents in London, and emigrated to Australia in 1972. He grew up as a practicing Buddhist, and converted to Christianity in his 20s after conversations with a friend who encouraged him to read about Jesus in the gospels.

Through a mix of short talks and Q&A, Onward 17 will directly address some of the cultural issues facing Christians in secular Australia and equip delegates with confidence in God's truth, wisdom for Christian living, and courage to engage with people on hard issues and pushback.
