There is a great need for more and more people in Australia's cities and towns to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Geneva Push is an Australian church planting network which aims to recruit, assess and train a new generation of church planters who are dedicated to evangelising new churches into existence across Australia.
The Open Evangelistic Church is a global church partner with The Point Community Church. Located in Msaranga, Tanzania, and led by Pastor Raynold, this small church has a big vision for Jesus being made known amongst the local population.
The Open Evangelistic Church sees a mission field of around 10,000 people in their immediate area, children making up close to half that number. These children are recognised as “the poorest of the poor children in over 25 developing countries” according to Compassion.
In League with The Open Evangelistic Church (TOEC) in Tanzania, we have supported the work of compassion to see a Child Development Centre planted in the community where TOEC is.
The centre opened September 16, 2012, and currently aids around 300 children from different families. These children have become a part of Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program, and receive: education in literacy and life skills, health care and health education, and if required, supplemental nutrition. Most importantly, these children will have opportunities to hear and respond to Jesus’ Gospel.
Together, we support ongoing child sponsorship with Compassion, as well as special community projects in and around Tanzania.
University is a time when many people make life-changing decisions, and so Port Mac Christian Students is a group that exists to help Christian students keep loving Jesus throughout university, and to help non-Christian students explore the claims and truth of Jesus.
Port Macquarie Christian Students is affiliated with the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES) and has recently appointed Steve Watt as the staff-worker for the group. Steve (along with Lauren and John) are involved with Bible teaching, discipleship and evangelism on campus.
Alpha-Omega is a church that meets in the village of Peshkopi, Albania, in South-Eastern Europe. The Point Community Church has an interest in the work that pastor Ermal and and his wife Sarah are conducting as they preach the gospel there.
Albania is a majority muslim, post-communist nation that has areas of great poverty and is in desperate need of the good news of Jesus. As someone who grew up in the area and took on the role of a pastor at a young age, Ermal is leading a minority group that faces extreme social pressure because of their beliefs. But by God’s grace they’re a tough bunch!
Ermal is always keen to hear from members of our church.
