Animate Summit | 2017 Warmbrunn Address

Monday, 8 May 2017

The Warmbrunn Address is named in memory of L.P. and D. Warmbrunn, the late parents of the late Cliff and Doug Warmbrunn, and the grandparents of Doug’s son and past Chair of CCVT’s Council Greg Warmbrunn, who is a part of One Community church in Blackburn.

Cliff and Doug donated funds in the name of their parents to be used for “an address on an evangelical theme, to be presented to a meeting of Conference, or other meeting open to the members of Conference…”.

As Don Smith said at the time of inaugural Address in the mid-1980s, “In this way they have sought to perpetuate the memory of their parents and their life of service to our churches. The memory and impact of parents on each one of us is something that goes very deep. Their influence is with us in so many ways… In this [way] the family have sought to express an ongoing commitment to the future.” The inaugural Address was given by Mike Yaconelli of Youth Specialties.

Others to bring the periodic Address include Martin Robinson (Churches of Christ, UK), Patrick Keifert (Lutheran church, USA), Doug Foster (‘a capella’ Churches of Christ, USA) and Gideon Tanbunaan (Christian Churches, Indonesia).

On Saturday May 6, Dr Andrew Menzies, Principal of Stirling Theological College, delivered the Warmbrunn Address to those assembled at the 2017 Animate Summit and CCVT Inc AGM.

Dr Andrew Menzies

Andrew came to his current position with a broad range of ministry experience in differently shaped churches and roles, and with a strong commitment to forming leaders for 21st Century mission and ministry. In 2016 he took an extended sabbatical during which he wrote the bulk of a book that engages issues of church leadership development, governance, and community life. His delivery of the Warmbrunn Address emerges out of this writing. Andrew is part of Ringwood church. 

The 2017 Warmbrunn Address is titled Not The Fake News, But The Full Story. This audio file includes an introduction by CCVT EO Paul Cameron.
