About TMPC

The Master Plan Conference (TMPC) seeks to bring glory to God through biblical teaching and encouraging fellowship for Christian home-schooling families, home school graduates, and those considering home schooling. The conference seeks to communicate the Master’s plan for family life and spur families on to live within His plan for families and churches.

About the Conference

We endeavour to ensure that TMPC is a time of encouragement for all attendees. We keep a large amount of free time in the program to allow time for fellowship with others, and to enjoy the food and the view!

Speakers

TMPC has homeschool speakers who speak from their heart, reflecting on their own experiences and encouraging us from God’s word.

Children

There is no children’s program run through the sessions other than an outdoor games session during the Mum’s and Dad’s Panel, run by the older youth and unmarried adults attending the camp. Parents are responsible to supervise their children in the sessions, and one idea is to bring quiet activity resources for your children to play with. Free time is a good opportunity for them to mix and fellowship with other like-minded families. The experience at other TMPC has been that the children have a ball, playing, learning, eating, and just spending time with other homeschooling children.

Sunday Morning Church Service

This is an opportunity for all of us to worship together. While we come together as Christian homeschoolers, the most significant thing that unifies us, the most lasting, is that we are saved by the blood of Jesus and adopted into the Father’s family.

Mums’ and Dads’ Panels

We will again be having a Mums’ panel and a Dads’ panel, where we have set aside time to enable Mums and Dads, separately, to share with each other, with the hope that we will encourage and spur each other on in our homeschool journeys.

Free Time

Free time is exactly that! There will be no planned activities during that time so that it is your time, to do with it what you want. Catch up with friends, play ball games, go bush walking or bring along card games, board games, or musical instruments.

Resource Rummage 

A chance to bring your pre-loved no longer needed resources to sell or give away. No time slot is allocated to this activity. Just when you have a moment, come and check it out.

TMPC Workshop

This year, for the first time, the TMPC conference weekend is followed by a 2-day workshop. This will allow extra time to dig into some practical ideas with our speaker. Since Mike will be speaking on discipling our children beyond homeschooling, this year’s Workshop will be most suited to older kids and young adults.

TMPC2019 Workshop runs from Sunday afternoon after the conference, 13 October 2019, through to lunchtime on Tuesday 15 October 2019.

TMPC2019 Workshop will be held in the Lodge at Ridgecrest and we will be catering for ourselves as a group.

TMPC Beach Camp

TMPC Beach Camp is like agreeing to holiday at the same place at the same time, so bring your own everything. We cook and eat in the common camp kitchen.

Most of the time is free time for meeting new friends or catching up with old ones or spending time with your family. There is plenty to do with beach walks, sand castle building, games, music or just chatting.

We have a church service together on the Sunday morning in the camp kitchen.

Beach Camp is held at Lake Tabourie Holiday Park.

There are bungalows / bunkrooms available at $80 per night, but there are also options for camping, caravanning, or cabins.

Contact the park on 02 4406 3101 for details of the accommodation and let them know your booking is for the “TMPC Beach Camp” 12-15 March 2020.

There is no formal registration for TMPC Beach Camp, but you can let us know to expect you by using the contact form.

    TMPC Family

    The families attending TMPC through the years have been so encouraged by the fellowship and the teaching that we have grown together in love for one another. We come from a wide variety of geographical areas and faith backgrounds, but hold in common a love for Jesus Christ and a desire to disciple our family in a way that honours him.

    All things have a limited life time, but at present God seems pleased to use this conference to encourage and spur on many families to disciple their children to be people who will disciple their children.

    We each seek to live pure lives that are engaged in our communities and impacting those communities for the good news about Jesus.

    We would love you to come and join us at the Conference, the Workshop or Beach Camp, new people are always welcome.
