Walk the World - Response Form

Thanks so much for getting involved with Walk the World!

This was the first year of Walk the World and we have been so encouraged by the response. There were churches registered from every State and Territory, as well as families, individuals and small groups getting involved.

How did you engage with Walk the World? We'd love to hear what you got up to and how we can improve Walk the World for next year. (Plus, complete the form by November 30 and you're in the running to win one of the church or individual prizes!)
 

How did you go? (Response Form)

Below are two forms, one for churches or groups to complete and the other for individuals. Fill in one of the forms to share how you and your church got involved. 

This will do three things: 
  1. Inspire and encourage others in our mission community! On Baptist Mission Australia's website and social media, we will share photos and ideas from around the country. 
  2. Enter your church into the running to win one of our 'invest back' prizes! We will carefully read through what you share, and choose two churches and one individual to win a prize. To enter, please complete the form by November 30. Head to the 'Competition Details and Prizes' dropdown for more information.
  3. Help us improve the Walk the World event and resources for next year. It's only the first year of Walk the World, so we know there are ways we can make it better next year! Thanks for helping us improve.

'Competition' Details and Prizes

Walk the World is not a competition, but there are some prizes up for grabs...

We are taking Walk the World as an opportunity to say thank you and invest back into church communities through some prizes. There are 'invest back' prizes for two churches and one individual.
The Prizes

For Churches:
  • 1st Prize: A full after service morning tea for your whole congregation to invest in your community building time. Plus, we can also provide a speaker to do the sermon or share an ministry story or update (depending on what the winning church wants).
  • 2nd Prize: Media support from our Communications Team on one project to invest in your church's media and communication. This support could take the form of editing a video, recording a podcast episode, designing a brochure or banner, providing a personalised story / reflection / thank you video from our team or another media project. The exact project will be decided in conversation with the winning church and be dependent on their media needs and our team's particular skills. 
For Individuals:
  • 1st Prize: $100 Koorong voucher to invest in your spiritual formation and growth.
Your partnership with our teams is opening doors for the Gospel to be shared. We can truly only to do this together! Please take these prizes as a active gesture of our appreciation for you and your church's partnership in mission.
