with special guest, Senator Malcolm Roberts
The preamble to the Australian Constitution refers to “humbly relying on the blessings of Almighty God.” If God is Who He says He is, that has enormous implications for our personal life as well as our public policy. So…
” Who, or what, is God?”
Senator Malcolm Roberts has long been widely regarded as someone who asks the tough questions of politicians, bureaucrats, journalists, scientists and critics. He is intellectually honestly pursuing Truth and isn’t afraid of the answers to his questions – or the heat that may come from asking them.
Not sharing an orthodox Christian faith in Jesus, this simple but critically important question is Malcolm’s: trusting the sincerity and capacity of Dave Pellowe to discuss the Australian Constitution’s big idea of Almighty God together with him.
Given the option, he comfortably agreed to invite you into the normally private conversation.
- When: Friday, 11th August 2023
- Main Event: 7pm – 8:30pm
- Where: BTP Conference Centre, Eight Mile Plains (Brisbane)
- Donations: Church And State would not be possible without the partnership of our generous supporters. Further opportunity to help cover costs and support the ministry of Church And State at time of registering and at the event will also be available.
- Main Event: 7pm – 8:30pm
- VIP Dinner: 8:30pm – 10pm
As a fundraising initiative for Church And State Ministries, some extra opportunities to mingle with our special guest Senator Malcolm Roberts, as well as George Christensen, and our host, Dave Pellowe, are scheduled on the same night.
Although tickets to the Main Event (the live studio audience interview) are normally only $37, they are available completely free this time with the special code “FREE” and an optional donation.
That obviously doesn’t work with a fundraiser, so tickets to the VIP Dinner include everything plus a private dinner after the Main Event, as well as front and centre seating in the Main Event.
Special Guest Bio
Malcolm (as he prefers to be called) has a passion for freedom, responsibility and service as his guiding principles in his public role as a Federal Senator for Queensland. He was first elected as a Senator with One Nation in 2016 and returned to the Senate again in 2019.
The early years of Malcolm’s life were spent in India before moving to Central Queensland with his family as his father worked in the coal mines, then later to the Hunter Valley and finally settling in Brisbane. Malcolm and his wife Christine have two adult children and have recently welcomed their first grandchild to the world.
Malcolm has extensive experience and success from within the corporate sector and as a business owner. His background in engineering and mining started before graduating with an engineering degree (honours) from University of Queensland. After graduation he worked for three years as an underground coalface miner. Malcolm rose through management ranks to lead and bring about significant profitability and production improvements at underground coal mines and coal processing plants.
A keen interest in business leadership and economics led Malcolm to a Master’s degree in business administration from the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business. He led the operational development of Australia’s largest and most complex underground coal project that successfully set many industry firsts. He then established an executive consultancy specialising in leadership and management services for Australian and international clients.
Malcolm brings to the Senate a thorough, practical and analytical approach to examining issues and is deeply committed to listening and thoroughly researching the facts. He is enthusiastic to work with Queenslanders to understand people’s concerns, to connect with people’s needs and to work to bring about helpful solutions.
Australia’s capacity to embrace its riches and talent has been slowly eroded over time. Malcolm is committed to optimising our productive capacity by removing excessive government intervention and halting the slow march towards the centralist approach that undermines our ability to take responsibility and have freedom in our lives.
