Sydney 2014

This was an extraordinary all inclusive intergenerational time of fellowship, worship and inspirational preaching. Even the creative elements, such as Christ's broken body served on a broken plank of wood, added depth to the experience for all of us. Thank you! - Angela Saunders

It’s an excellent opportunity that creates challenge for me. At One project I get to hear other perspectives and I get to hear that there are others who like me, want a christ centred life. It’s encouraging, challenging, invigorating and it sends me back out ready to go - Lynda Keck

It is a reminder of why I believe in Jesus, and how all my/our beliefs are centred around Jesus! This ABC guide of how I can live out Jesus & Scripture in whatever I do - Valerie D

The One project is a great spiritual program that helps christians strengthen their faith and knowledge. It connects with each individual and brings many great speakers to share the word and to help us understand it - Jessica Kuo

It was such an amazing experience, especially for my 1st time I learnt a lot and it definitely opened my eyes to a completely new perspective on Christ. Being with others who are searching for answers also can help support one another in our walk - Stephanie

A part of my journey towards God. I am currently undertaking bible studies towards baptism this year, and I have found the One project to be a powerful and meaningful step forward in my journey to God - Lauren McColl

It was refreshing, uplifting, humbling and inspiring - Adele

Inspiring, motivating, encouraging - Libby

A non judgemental, happy space where we are gently reminded that Jesus is simply all we need. nothing else - Angie B

It was an opportunity to discover more about Jesus. who he is and how he is working in other people. it is an opportunity to refocus. To stop looking IN and look OUT - Sylvia

The One project should be the model of how church should be run. Small talks and discussions rather than listening to long sermons (kids spend all week being taught and lectured at, Sabbath needs to be a break from that. - Mitch Courtney

A breath of fresh air! so thankful to connect with other like-minded people. Refreshing, inspiring & challenging. Thank you for showing Jesus in all! - Heidi

I met and reconnected with Jesus once again. Through the powerful messages and true church community, God's promises of heaven on Earth became more of a reality for me.

JESUS.ALL. - Beez

It was a great time of personal and corporate encouragement, that God is bringing us back to Jesus, and his Great Commandments and Great Commission - Roland Talamaivao-Amituanai

It's liberating to know that it's ok to explore my beliefs and grow! Thank you for giving us the space and time to think and explore together - Heidi

This was a time where we were challenged to view our own Christian lives from a new perspective, and to develop a more complete understanding of our denominational beliefs. As a minister in training, I also found that the Minister Special on the following Monday was so applicable and helpful. Seeing I know that I have quite a few years to go until I graduate, it was beneficial to get inside the heads of those who had been in ministry for a longer time and form possible ways of dealing with issues that will most certainly arise - Stephen Duncan

It has given me a new light, vision, belief, and hope in the church. That we can be a part of that body of christ, unified with the rest of Christianity - Tyson

The One Project experience has reminded me why I love my church (Adventist) and its message (prophetic and doctrine) and mission (relational) - Ray Moaga

Just what I needed! Speakers were inspirational - more than that - they spoke from the heart and touched my heart. Thank you so much for the experience. I will definitely come again - Cornelius

It is impossible to spend an entire weekend with Jesus and not, in awe, fall back in love with Him - Erin Raethel

It was an amazing opportunity to explore the character of Jesus, and dialogue with a diverse group of people unified by the ONE - Clare Barnes

It was again an experience I would love all my family and friends to have. It is like you have spent a day and a half at JESUS' feet, just soaking up the absolute Unconditional Love HE has for me , it is a Special time with HIM - Russell Fehlberg

I thought I had God's character downpacked..I was wrong, I have been challenged in so many amazing ways and I cannot wait to share it!! Why wait to get to heaven when WE can make heaven here on earth! - Chantelle Proud

The One Project is an opportunity for me to refocus on Jesus. Sometimes life gets in the way and Jesus takes a backseat...sometimes I don't even allow Him along for the ride. The One Project reminds me that without Jesus there is no ride! - Josh Wood

Spiritually uplifting, sometimes we are so busy in the ministry that we tend to forget our own spiritual nurturing. Was good to have that fire relit. Also great getting to know so many people from all different areas and walks of life - Rebekah Bernoth

The One Project ignited a desire within me to know Jesus for real. Off the page and in the deepest part of myself. To have an ongoing connection with Him at each stage of my life and journey. To remember that He is interested and involved with me. He truly cares - Chantal

It was my first One Project gathering and it felt like a camp meeting... on speed. I enjoyed all the speakers even though I was surprised there wasn't more of a focus on Jesus. I also enjoyed the table discussions. Given the passionate comments I'd heard/read about TOP, both pro and con, I was surprised that it felt like a pretty standard Adventist meeting - there wasn't anything radical, critical or "edgy" about it that I could identify, unless you count the hand blessing (which I've done before in another Adventist context) and the lack of caffeine-free hot drinks (which probably was accidental). I'm left with some very powerful theological metaphors and perspectives and a renewed concern for our (my!) tendency to spend a lot of time and effort on talking to ourselves rather than engaging practically and meaningfully with our broken world. Overall I enjoyed it but I probably wouldn't attend again - Kent

I felt incredibly refreshed and invigorated after the One Project. Somehow I see things in a clearer perspective, feel a lot more at peace and relaxed and feel a greater sense of joy, all based in the realisation that Jesus is the most important person in my complete Christian experience - Kylie Stacey

The One Project was a life changing experience! The speakers are so inspirational and challenging! One Project helped me to become on fire for God again! I would recommend it to anyone! - Jessica Hodgkin
