CMS MISSION PARTNERS
SLOVENIA: KINGSLEY & RONNIE BOX
Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, has a population of around 300,000. Like Slovenia generally, it suffers from a critical lack of faithful gospel witness. Evangelical believers are a tiny minority (0.04%). Living in Ljubljana, Kingsley is the Assistant Minister to Peter Novak in the REC, focusing on youth. Kingsley and Veronica serve at church, and seek to evangelise Slovenes. After 14 years in Slovenia, the Box family will be returning to Sydney in mid 2019.
Karen grew up in Engadine and faithfully served in Japan for over 20 years. In 2018, Karen started a new Japanese ministry in Dubai.
JORDAN: MAL & CHARISSA FORREST
Amman is the capital of Jordan, which is bounded by Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, the West Bank and Israel. Malcolm & Charissa serve in one of the largest churches by membership in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, and a strategic location for evangelical ministry, both nationally and internationally. The Forrests pray that as people move on, God will bring new people along to church. God is faithful, and every year new people do come and the church continues to grow.
NORTHERN TERRITORY: WAYNE & MANDY OLDFIELD-JONES
Wayne grew up in Heathcote and is married to Mandy. Nungalinya College, in Darwin, trains Indigenous men and women for Christian discipleship, ministry roles and church and community leadership. As the Anglican Dean at Nungalinya, Wayne arranges student enrolments and travel, and supports students when they are at college. Mandy teaches in the Cert III and Cert IV Christian Ministry and Theology courses and is the Cross-Cultural Awareness Coordinator at Nungalinya.
PAST MEMBERS IN FULL-TIME GOSPEL MINISTRY
We want to be a generous church, carefully disciplining and training our young leaders, and then encouraging those who can, to go into full-time ministry. We pray that God would raise up a new generation of full-time gospel ministers from our church, from our current kids, youth and young adults.
