Last week at our Carlton congregations and this week at Bexley and Bexley North, Phil has announced the wonderful news that we are taking on three new MTS apprentices in 2017.
One of the things we are most passionate about is raising up people for the work of the Gospel and over the years we have sent so many people out to minister elsewhere. In 2017 three people have decided to step aside from their jobs to take two years out to do the Ministry Training Strategy apprenticeship: Jessica Ko, Netane Siuhengalu and Rick Vance.
All three of these MTS apprentices have been involved in our 6:30pm congregation for some time and have served in various capacities amongst youth, children and young adults. Please be praying for these three as they start their ministry apprenticeships.
More than that, please take this new initiative into account as you work out your giving for next year as it will be quite a stretch to take on these new positions. In fact, if you would like to support them now please put in a gift in an envelope marked MTS or make a gift through the church account marked MTS.
