Praise for our Faith Runs Deep Seminars

“Ainsley was a captivating speaker helping students to understand that the Australian Christian story is not one of doom and gloom but one of Christian heroes standing up for the rights of oppressed and under privileged. Student comments following the presentation include: “I was amazed to hear what Australian Christians did to help women’s rights and help the aboriginal community” and “It was great to hear a fuller picture of what Christians were doing in the development of Australia”.
