It was great to have Akos Balogh visit Lismore last weekend – as the current AFES staff worker with TBT, it gave me an exciting glimpse into what’s in store for TBT and gospel ministry at SCU in 2010.
Yesterday Akos and I spent a serious chunk of time in the plaza at uni: we were there for 4 hours and had a constant stream of TBT students dropping past for a chat, excited to meet Akos and think about the future of TBT. It’s stuff like this that gets me excited about TBT: not only seeing each student grow as a Christian, but also seeing TBT students growing together as a visible group of Jesus’ followers on campus, excited to think about ministry and where it’s headed at SCU.
On Sunday at SCPC, Pete interviewed Akos about the new direction for TBT. From 2010, the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES) will employ both Akos and myself in full-time gospel ministry at SCU, which means that TBT staff are no longer employed by SCPC. This also means, as Akos explained on Sunday, that gospel ministry at SCU now depends upon the generous donations of many people, both in Lismore and elsewhere.
As residents of Lismore, SCU is a major mission field right here in your backyard – please consider how you can join with TBT in gospel ministry and support mission to uni students in Lismore. Everyone can be a TBT supporter through praying regularly for TBT. Additionally, you might be in a position to contribute financially – which as you saw on Sunday, is a great need for TBT as we expand this ministry. For more info about this, please contact myself or Nicky Pryor, or go to the AFES webpage.
I’d like to thank everyone at SCPC again for your continual support through prayers and giving – your partnership with TBT in gospel ministry is a great encouragement to us.
