Hi Everyone, 

Well it’s that time of year again and I reckon as we approach this year’s Covenant Men’s Conference, I’m more excited than ever. 

As you can see, we’re going to keep the event to one day and one day only. This will enable groups from all over Melbourne and Victoria, to either just attend the Conference on Saturday, or they have the option to use the Friday Night for a footy outing or some other social encounter if they so desire. We’ll still have 5 ministry sessions on Saturday but without the added expense of accommodation that was carried by many. 

I’m delighted to have two great friends with us, who are both building great churches with very strong Men’s Ministries. 

Both from Hawaii, Mike Kai is the Senior Pastor at Inspire Church on Oahu & Evan Carmichael is the Senior Pastor of Arise Church on the Big Island. 

I have no doubt that this conference will encourage so many men with a word in season, we just need to get them there. 

If we can do anything to assist you in getting either yourself or your men there, please let us know. 

I’m really believing for changed lives, bold fellowship and worship that changes everything.

Hope to see you there. 

Shane Baxter
Senior Pastor – Enjoy Church
State President – ACC Victoria


With his zest for life and warm sense of humour he has a unique ability to relate and connect with people of all ages and backgrounds.  Shane is passionate about seeing the local church flourish and is committed to leadership development that facilitates people being released into their purpose and calling.

Under his visionary and relational style of leadership, Enjoy Church has grown significantly over the past 18+ years and now has numerous campuses across Victoria, with approximately 7000 people and over 100 nationalities represented.

Shane is currently part of the National Executive for the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) and is the State President for the ACC in Victoria.

Shane and his wife, Georgie, have been married for over 27 years, and together have two beautiful daughters, Emily and Maddison, as well as one ‘son-of-choice’, Ryota, who is married to Emily.


From humble beginnings in 2001 to a thriving multi-site congregation, Pastor Mike and Lisa Kai are passionate about building the Church. They are visionary leaders with hearts to advance the Kingdom of God by attracting non-believers to Christ, connecting them to their church family, training them for life and ministry and sending each person to fulfill their God-given potential. The church began with 40 people has now grown to over 4,000 in weekly attendance over 3 locations island wide.

Pastors Mike and Lisa believe that ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind can comprehend what God has for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9)’, and out of this conviction has sparked the emergence of the Equip and Inspire Network.

Each year, the Network hosts the Arise Women’s Conference, Kingdom Man Conference, and the Equip and Inspire Conference, which empower people from across the Hawaiian Islands, US Mainland, and Internationally.


Pastor Evan Carmichael’s ministry roots run deep. He was raised in a pastor’s home and has been actively involved in ministry from the age of 10. He has been leading worship at his father’s church for many years before answering the call to step into the role of Senior Pastor over ARISE Church. Throughout the last couple of years, the church has experienced growth both spiritually and numerically under his guidance. He is ordained under the Assemblies of God. Pastor Evan truly desires to see men, women, and children rise to the full potential that God has for their life.
