We believe the Church is not limited to the four walls of a building. The Church is a living, breathing organism made up of people from every background and culture. Our mandate is to empower the Church - as both individuals and as a collective body - to be everything God intended it to be.
Whether you are a creative, a business person, a leader or someone who is still trying to figure it all out, we know that as you take the time to pursue God, He will be faithful to do extraordinary things - immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine, according to His power.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are from, you are invited to join us this September as we take a few days to tune in and find out what God is saying to His Church.
Senior Pastors and your TBCØ Conference hosts, Henry & Alex Seeley were born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, where they first met.
They moved to Melbourne in 2003 and alongside their pastors, pioneered a worship movement in Australia that grew to a church of nearly 10,000 people.
Both ordained pastors with The Australian Christian Churches (ACC), a movement of over 1,100 churches, they have been in "full-time ministry" for over 2 decades.
In 2012, along with their two children, the couple moved to Nashville TN where they began ministering to local musicians and artists in their home, a small group that has birthed The Belonging Co.
Henry & Alex are passionate about seeing people have a genuine encounter with Jesus, raising a generation that will share the love and hope of Jesus to this world.
Married for 19 years, they have two children, Holly (14) and Taylor (9).
After relocating to Nashville, TN in April 2012, Henry & Alex Seeley began opening their home on Tuesday nights for people to worship, encounter God and build genuine community in a city where people's personal and spiritual lives often succumb to the transient nature of 'Life On The Road'.
During their first meeting with just a handful of people, something profound happened - the presence of God filled the room and every person there had an encounter with God in a fresh and tangible way. Continuing to meet every other week, it only took a few months before their basement was at capacity and The Belonging Co. was born.
News of what Jesus was doing in people's lives spread across Nashville. People began to come from all over the city to encounter the presence of God; lives were changed as room was made for The Holy Spirit to move. Marriages were restored, addictions broken and wounded hearts were healed.
The Belonging Co. quickly became known as a place to find freedom, a place for people to belong before they believed. After 2 years of meeting together, it now reaches over 3,000 people across Nashville and thousands online from all over the world. We can't put into words what God is doing, but we're sure about one thing - He's building His Church and transforming lives from the inside out.

Chris is the Senior Associate Pastor at Christ Tabernacle in Queens, NY. He is the creative architect of the misfit movement, a local youth ministry that has had global impact. For 10 years he passionately led the next generation ministries called Misfit NYC.
Chris with his wife Yahris reside in New York City with their two children, Dylan and Chloe. They are committed to seeking the presence of God and helping others encounter Him. Their passion for bringing the Gospel to all generations is best explained by Romans 12:1-2 (The Message):
“Take your everyday, ordinary life-- your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life--and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God."
