God loves our whole world. Every person in every place!
We firmly believe God loves our whole world. Every person in every place! As a local church we join with God in his global work when we support missionaries and agencies that help people follow Jesus.
May is a significant time in Australian Baptist Churches to focus on Global mission. Today 42% of the world’s people still live in people-groups are “least-reached.” That means that there are significant social and cultural boundaries to be crossed if we are to be able to share the Good News of Jesus with them.
We partner with Global Mission in three ways:
PRAYER: Pray for the Ames, Hutchinsons, TEAM, Company of Grace and our agency Baptist Mission Australia each day during May.
FINANCES: Partner financially with our May Mission Month project
TEAM: We bring together people who are passionate about Global Missions so we can support, advocate and increase our Church’s contributions.
May Mission Month Project
During May Mission Month we choose a 'project' to support financially.
This year we will raise support for Owen & Sarah Ames to help them meet their financial support target.
Owen serves as the TEAM Regional Member Care Coordinator for Australasia. He cares for around 50 workers and their families serving in South East Asia. This role involves includes onboarding new workers well, team building, coaching and leadership development as well as ensuring they get the support they need when challenging situations arise. Owen is also the Director of Collaboration and Globalization for the Asia Pacific Region. He works to start and develop partnerships with our Asian brothers and sisters across 18 countries. This includes working with local sending organizations, churches, denominations and seminaries.
Our Church is raising funds for a one-off gift to the Ames. This will go towards their living expenses, paid as part of their monthly allowance.
We are profiling the Ames ministry so people in our church can consider partnering with the Ames through regular financial support and prayer.
