Please join us to Pray in May!
MTS Pray in May is a month-long campaigning inviting all Christians around Australia to partner in prayer with the MTS movement.
MTS (Ministry Training Strategy) is a movement that promotes and facilitates ministry apprenticeships. These apprenticeships are designed to raise up harvest workers through two-year, hands-on ministry training in local churches, on campus and in other ministry placements.
MTS apprentices are well placed to then undertake theological study and become gospel workers who are able to handle God’s word with care and apply it with wisdom to the lives of those to whom they minister. Hundreds of men and women have completed MTS apprenticeships in Australia, and the movement is growing internationally.
We would deeply appreciate your prayers this month that our movement may continue to grow and see more apprentices raised up, to win the world for Christ.
