Young, gifted and on fire for the gospel
In 2012 I was challenged to consider my role in the body of Christ and have since spent considerable time seeking guidance from church leaders, trusted Christian friends, and reading my Bible and other books on the subject. Throughout this process, the friends and key leaders I spoke to encouraged me to think about doing a two-year ministry apprenticeship.
So now that I have taken up the challenge what next? During my apprenticeship I have the privilege of being involved in a wide variety of ministry activities. My main ministry priorities are serving with the ANU Christian student group (FOCUS) and working with international students as part of the Crossroads International Fellowship. I also will be part of a mission trip with Crossroads to India in October to teach Moore College PTC courses to local pastors and will spend a few hours each week apprenticing to sports chaplains across a rotation of sports and clubs.
Beyond MTS I would like to go on to Bible college. And beyond that I am open to going wherever needed. Thanks again to all of you for your support not only to me, but to all of the MTS apprentices. It is my prayer that God will see a great return on all of your investments!
