meeting with and supporting women in ministry as well as recruitment and training women
for ministry.

Kara is married to Brett and they live in the southern suburbs of Sydney. She attends St
John’s at Sutherland.

Kara will be giving two talks from the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, addressing the topic of Honouring God in Challenging Times.

Wendy Francis is the Qld and NT Director for the Australian Christian Lobby. She is a recognised
Australian spokesperson for the rights of women and children and an effective campaigner against
sexual exploitation in all its forms. Wendy is a Director and Board Member of Samaritans Purse
Australia and Vision Media Australia and has travelled to countries such as Vietnam, Thailand,
Bangladesh and Cambodia where she has participated in projects to rescue women and children from sexual abuse, and provide literacy and health projects amongst rural women. She and her husband Peter have been married for 41 years. They have 3 married children and 10 grandchildren.

Wendy will be speaking on the following two topics:

Over exposed – it’s no longer if, it’s when. Preparing for the inevitable and pushing back.

Dealing with the prevalence of pornography and what our response needs to be. Using Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as a foundation passage.

The voice within you. Speaking Truth in love.

Examining the lives of women who have been resolute in their stand for Truth and, in doing so, have changed the lives of those around them. We are called to do likewise. Ignoring evil is not an option for the child of God.
