Code of Conduct
Katoomba Christian Convention (KCC) is a Christian ministry that exists in order to see people’s lives changed by Christ through the preaching of God’s word, by His Spirit. The preached word must be a lived word not just for the delegates who attend conventions, but for all those involved in the KCC ministries. We are keenly aware of the continued integrity of life before God required from all involved: “Be holy because I am Holy” (1 Peter 1:16). Grounded in Scripture as our final authority in matters of life and faith, the KCC Code of Conduct sets out guidelines for behaviour for all people involved in the ministry of KCC.
If you have any concerns regarding the conduct of a KCC staff member or volunteer, please email email@example.com to get in contact confidentially with our Executive Director, Jonathan Dykes, or the Chairman of the Board, Rod Walker.
I’ve attended OneLove three times, and each time have found myself encouraged, challenged and inspired. This year was just the same, and I’m so thankful for your ministry in making it happen!
Nancy Guthrie is brilliant, as have been all the speakers I’ve heard at OneLove, and I am so glad that you do not compromise on the standard of your speakers. Thank you for upholding a high standard.
