The Australian Presbyterian World Mission is the organisation of the Presbyterian Church of Australia which helps facilitate the church's obedience to the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to "go and make disciples of all nations..."


We are different from other denominational mission agencies in that our missionaries serve in one of two ways: either (a) serving with Partner Churches in Bangladesh, Japan, Malawi, Myanmar, Sudan, Vanuatu and Zambia, or (b) serving with Partner Agencies such as GRN, OMF, Wycliffe, Pioneers, SIM etc. The majority of our missionaries serve in this way.

AZTEM's purpose is to encourage and help Christians to become effective Tentmakers, working in a culture other than their own, especially where people do not have ready access to the Gospel.
Tentmakers are those who have responded to God?s call to proclaim Christ in cultures other than their own, and who combine this with secular employment in that culture.
There are many openings for professionals in places where traditional missionary work is restricted.
Christians in fellowship with Aztem have worked in all continents and in many unreached nations. Their jobs have included IT specialist, atmospheric scientist, nurse educator, English teacher, doctor, administrator, agriculturalist and engineer.
If you have an employable skill and a willingness to learn to witness cross-culturally, consider joining Aztem. You will benefit from Aztem's resources and training.

Chinese Church Support Ministries

  Contact David Ryan   02 9533 4096

Perceptions aren't always reality; nothing could be more accurate in terms of the persecuted church in China or the difficulties faced by their 1.3 billion people.

We're active in many areas of mission; serving, strengthening and supporting the church and people of China for over 25 years & have offices in 9 countries.

CCSM support the churches in China by providing free teaching books and Bibles plus other resources unavailable locally. This strengthens, resources and equips the Chinese church by helping to disciple young believers and untaught leaders who need mature, committed believers to stand alongside them.

We also provide a monthly prayer letter internationally to stimulate informed prayer.

Our mercy department operates foster homes and child sponsorship programs for children living in poverty. We also operate a training centre for children with intellectual and physical challenges. Come and volunteer helping in this valuable area.

There are opportunities for people to experience missions by joining one of our short-term Mercy, Come & Do, Cycle or iTell English teaching teams. Like many you may sense a call to join our in-country mission school (6 months to 1 year commitment) preparing to serve in mission for longer periods.

If God is speaking to you about serving in any of these ways we'd love to hear from you.

European Christian Mission is working to bring the hope of Christ to today's Europeans.

Our priority is to establish new churches in Europe, working in partnership with local evangelical organisations. ECM partners with missionaries, churches and individuals who are spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the nations of this continent.

Our desire is to see new churches established where none currently exist and to encourage them to reproduce contextually appropriate communities of faith that witness to Jesus Christ, embody the gospel and act as an agent of change in society. With this desire in mind we have been active in evangelism, disciple making, integral ministries and training of leaders, always looking for creative and innovative ways to adapt to the local culture and the ever changing society.
In addition, we work hard to make an impact on the lives of the people we come into contact with. We do this through various community-based projects working with drug addicts, learning-disabled children and their families, war-traumatised families, asylum-seekers and refugees.

It is a huge task, but one that we believe is vital, exciting and unavoidable.

Will you join us on this journey into hope?

Faith Academy Philippines

Web: http://www.faith.edu.ph
  Contact Anne Penner   +632-248-5000 Ext 269

Faith Academy Philippines is an international Christian school primarily for the children of missionaries serving in Asia. Since 1957, we have been committed to equipping students to be Christ-like, life-long learners by providing a dynamic, relevant education.

We have two schools with a combined student population of approximately 670 students from Preschool through Grade 12. Our school in Davao, on the island of Mindanao, has about 150 students. The school in Manila has around 520 students. Approximately ten percent of our students live in boarding homes staffed by Faith Academy as their parents serve in missions in various areas of southeast Asia. Our students represent over 20 different countries with approximately half from within Asia. We offer both the British IGCSE curriculum for International students, as well an American curriculum.

In order to keep costs down for missionary families, the school does not pay salaries to staff members. Our faculty and staff are either self-supporting or receive financial support under the guidelines of a mission organization, whereby they raise their own support through fellow believers and churches who want to be a part of their mission support.

Far East Broadcasting Company

Web: http://www.febc.org.au
  Contact Jenny Porter   02 9525 6460

FEBC broadcasts Christian radio programs using AM, FM and shortwave facilities as well as the internet to address people's physical and spiritual needs. Our daily international radio ministry overcomes natural and man-made barriers of isolation, persecution, literacy and distance to share Christ's love in over 130 languages, from transmitters located around the world. Last year, the radio ministry of FEBC received more than 1,100,000 responses from listeners.

Most people who join the FEBC overseas staff team have experience in broadcast engineering. Most of our staff have engineering degrees, but not all have worked on high powered transmitters before joining FEBC. At times there are vacancies for skilled riggers or builders depending on projects being undertaken at the time.

Most programming or journalism for FEBC's radio broadcasts is undertaken by the speakers of the many languages in which our programs are aired. There are very few openings for English programmers. However, if you have a language other than English as a first language, particularly if it is a language with few Christian believers and announcers, your radio communication skills could be most valuable to the work.

If you believe that God is leading you into full time work in Christian radio ministry, please contact us so that FEBC Australia's leaders can work with you through this investigative process.

Interserve provides the opportunities, resources and connections for people to serve Christ using their professional skills voluntarily in countries in Asia and the Arab World where He is least known, using their vocational and life skills. We get alongside the local people in tackling material, physical, mental and spiritual needs. Our commitment is to partner together in reaching the hard places of the world.

There is no work in any field that has the label "Interserve". Partnership means being a servant and for many serving through Interserve that service will be through secondment to other agencies, Christian or secular, and to governments or churches. For others it may mean making their own employment contracts and some will be students.

Interserve Partners are engaged in wholistic ministry. That means we get to impact lives at multiple levels. Our skills are applied in communities through assignments where we can make a real difference to the lives of people in need. The sacrificial quality of our service also gives us the proximity, credibility and opportunity to demonstrate and articulate the gospel of Christ as we build relationships and serve the local church.

The residential programme is run on a 'Family Group Home' model where a House Parent couple have care of a household of up to 12 students.

Located in the tropical 'Top End', adjacent to Litchfield National Park, the College forms its own small, remote village/community comprising students, House Parents, Teachers and support staff. All staff live on site. Modest and basically furnished accommodation is provided.

All regular positions are paid but we also welcome volunteers.

We seek to empower them by forming partnerships and networks, developing disciples and servant leaders, founding and nurturing Christian communities, facilitating community transformation, showing mercy and opposing injustice.

We currently have field teams in Cambodia, the Philippines, India, Indonesia and Myanmar.

Servants is a faith mission and all workers raise their financial support from their local churches and friends.

Many people effected by leprosy suffer from lack of choice and are usually powerless to change their situation.TLM wants to help them enlarge their choices and to encourage and enable them to take part in decisions effecting their lives.

TLM's goal is empowerment; not dependency. Empowerment enables each person affected by leprosy to reach their potential as a full participant in their community, which gives them pride, dignity and a sense of worth. In the end, we want to hear people say, "I've been cured of leprosy AND I am a valued and respected person."

We work in 29 countries worldwide and TLM Australia concentrates its focus of work within India, Nigeria, D.R Congo, Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Nepal, Thailand and Myanmar. Over 2000 national & international staff, work together to provide appropriate medical, educational and other services to meet the many needs of people affected by leprosy.

While most of the workers with TLM are medical professionals there are other ways to support TLM. Try the Trek for Treatment, become a participant in the annual Ride for Rehab, or Recykle, or go on a trip with TLM and return to help make the work of TLM more widely known in Australia.

Every day, Bible translators the world over find themselves pulled away from their primary responsibility - translating the Word of God - to deal with tasks that, while important, can be accomplished by others. For example: construction and/or building maintenance, office and bookkeeping, airstrip maintenance, teaching, being house parents for missionary kids, vehicle repairs, etc. Wycliffe Associates are volunteers who help with these things.

Do you know there are over 2000 languages that still do not have any portion of the Bible translated? We help to accomplish this task by contributing our skills and resources to support Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia and SIL in practical ways. Although volunteers desire to see God's Word translated for the Bible-less peoples of the world they are not translators themselves, but they can use their God-given talents and skills to support translators in Australia and overseas so the translators can get on with their primary task.

Volunteers can join work parties for 3-4 weeks, or serve for longer periods up to 2 yrs.

Whether you are young or retired - or anywhere in between - volunteering with Wycliffe Associates is a great way to serve God, support the task of Bible translation and experience other cultures through practical help.

YWAM Frontier Missions can help you make a difference by praying, giving, going short-term or long-term to share the love of God, adopting an unreached people group, or telling others about the opportunities.
