When you look at the ministry of someone like Paul the apostle, it’s immediately clear that the work of evangelism happens best in the local church. Paul’s letters were written to churches like the church in Ephesus or Corinth or Colossae, not to big para-church organisations.
It’s within the local church that you have the regular preaching of the Word. It is where we partake of the Lord’s Supper. It’s the primary venue for baptism. It is where the Christian is cared for and discipled at a personal level. It is where Christians learns how to speak the truth in love to their neighbors.
And it is where we have all been called to serve.
During the two-year apprenticeship , I will be serving full time with a local church. I’ll be assisting in leadership, gaining hands-on ministry experience and taking part in the general life of the church. Tracy desires to serve the local church by serving mothers’ and children’s ministries.
For our four children, this is an exciting time to see their parents involved even more in the work of gospel ministry while having the opportunity to make new friends, learn more about God and experience the culture their mother grew up in.
This mission, to serve the local church cannot happen without your support, both in prayer and finances. We ask that you would prayerfully consider joining with us to enable and empower us to do what God has called us to.
