Pastor looks for apprentice
A Peninsula pastor is on the lookout for a new apprentice to develop and launch a new congregation in the Woy Woy-Umina area.
Peninsula EV Church's Mr Craig Dobbie is seeking an MTS ministry apprentice to train in 2017-18.
Mr Dobbie has trained MTS apprentices for the past 20 years in the region and said the beach culture of the Peninsula provided many opportunities for evangelism and growth as families flooded into the area.
"In the year to come, we have plans to plant a second congregation on a Sunday evening to minister to the younger demographic," Mr Dobbie wrote in a Facebook post advertising the apprenticeship.
"This is an ideal training field for the MTS candidate who's eager to see people come to Christ and who wants an experience in church planting.
"Such a person needs to be well-organised, have a good work ethic and some experience in the working world and is above all ready to be stretched," he continued.
"They will receive training in a whole bunch of areas: preaching; evangelistic strategy and skill; bible exegesis, teaching; event management; recruiting, establishing, training and developing teams; and they'll have a unique role in launching and developing a new congregation.
"There's lots of opportunity," Mr Dobbie said.
