St John’s Anglican Church, Wishart | Trainer: Michelle Philp


I am super excited to be completing my MTS apprenticeship for the next couple of years! I have seen God working in my life over many years now, guiding me to explore the possibility of full time ministry, and MTS is providing me with a fantastic opportunity to learn Christ-centred and gospel-focused ministry first hand, as I serve in my Church, St Johns.

My first term of MTS has been a busy and challenging time. I have studied and learnt a great deal from and about the bible, including studying the New Testament and its historical context, the gospels (particularly Mark), and the kingdom of God. I have also learnt about personal prayer, corporate prayer and prayer ministry, and also the realities and challenges of ministering to all ages and stages of life. During this term I have also been serving and leading in children’s and youth ministries, music ministry, RI, and more.

I have been greatly encouraged by the support I have received so far in my apprenticeship in every form; be it prayer, financial, emotional or physical support, and this has spurred me on in my training and service.

Thank you so much for partnering with me in this ministry, I am so thankful to God for everyone who is walking with me in prayer, encouragement, and financial support. I would not have this chance to try out full time ministry without all of you!

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of your wonderful deeds. (Psalm 9:1)

  • Praise God for the encouragement, challenge, and growth that I have been through in Term 1!

  • Pray for Michelle, who is my primary trainer in my internship. Give thanks to God for her willingness and enthusiasm to serve God in my training, and pray for wisdom, strength and energy as she continues in this role!

My support structure:

  • Pray for financial support for me, that I will trust God and his provision, and that I can be proactive and Godly in my support seeking
  • Praise God for the incredible support I have already received so far in my training. Thank God for all those who are faithfully supporting me.
