2025 theme:

Near & Far

God calls his people to faithfully follow Him as we make his name known in all the corners of the earth – both near and far.
 

This year will feature insights from our workers on refocusing our view of the mission field and opening our eyes to cross-cultural opportunities

Meet our speaker

My name is Sam McGeown.

 

Originally from Northern Ireland, I spent 12 years in Japan as an English teacher and church planter. Whilst studying at Ridley I also worked as the pastor of the Melbourne Japanese Church.

 

I have since spent time with Crosslinks in the UK and CMS Queensland with Northern New South Wales. Almost 8 years ago, I became the pastor of Village Church in inner-city Brisbane. Village is increasingly multi-ethnic and socially diverse. We seek to love God and love people from the end of our toes to the ends of the earth.


I’m married to Yoriko and we have 3 adult “kids”, one teenager, an ingrafted son, and a daughter-in-law with twins.


People often say I look like Mr Incredible before he does the exercise.

SUTS History

Our first Victorian Summer School was held in 1908 at Healesville. Since then, we've gathered at over 20 locations, such as Ballarat, Ocean Grove, and Phillip Island. We've moved to larger venues with increasing attendance to accommodate our growing community.
