As we face more uncertainty in 2021, it is easy to take a step back from situations we can’t control. Yet, as God’s people, we have unfinished business. Join us as we investigate the book of Haggai and the challenge God presents: to put His plans ahead of our own. This isn’t a conference for the faint-hearted – hard questions await. What is holding you back? What risks will you take? Explore how you can be a part of God’s plan in the midst of the challenges we face in an uncertain world.

“Is it a time for you yourselves to live in your panelled houses, while this house lies in ruins? Now, the Lord of Hosts says this: “Think carefully about your ways.” Haggai 1:4-5

Keynote Speakers


Phil & Irene Nicholson

Time to Build
Phil and Irene have been serving with OMF in Taiwan since 1992. They have 3 adult sons who grew up in Taiwan, but now are working in Australia and in England. Previously they have worked with university students and also in mission leadership.

Phil is currently involved in preaching and training ministries, equipping church leaders to understand and faithfully teach God’s word. A lot of his time he is seconded to Langham Preaching, training pastors and church leaders across 9 countries in East Asia. 

Irene wears a number of different hats. She is Mobiliser for the Taiwan field, leading a team that produces resources (social media, website, videos, etc) to make the needs of Taiwan known around the world. Irene also leads the Pre-Home Assignment Workshop, a 2 week training course that helps missionaries prepare for returning to their home countries, helping them develop partnerships with their sending churches and plan how to have fruitful Home Assignments.

Phil also enjoys cycling around the hills of Taiwan, and Irene is often found cooking for fun and for ministry. When they are not working and able to travel, they also both like to scuba dive.
