Missions Interlink Northern Territory
Hi, my name is Rachel and I am the new MINT co-ordinator!
Up until recently the co-ordinator for Missions Interlink South Australia had been responsible for both SA and NT. The mission representatives have met in the middle of the year for ’Sharing and Prayer’. This is a fresh new era with now a representative for Missions Interlink based in the Northern Territory (MINT).
I am looking forward to representing and facilitating communication between the mission agencies and churches in the NT. I will network and organise events to promote effective cross-cultural and global mission.
– With Indigenous Australians? (As a visitor, short term, long term, or as a ministry wanting to connect with Indigenous ministry)
– In cross cultural missions from the NT to the wider world?
We can help you link in with the missions you are interested in, contact us to find out how.
A great experience of Indigenous and non-Indigenous coming together as all one in Christ Jesus. More info.
Are you 18 years and over? Want to go on a time of Ministry, outback Adventure and Discovery? Want to know more about the work of Bible Translation with Indigenous Australians? This may involve learning about co-ordinating translation, literacy, working in ways to reach youth and children, discipleship, etc. Then this is the trip for you… see http://wycliffe.org.au/event/mad-short-term-trip/ for details.
Aboriginal people across Australia are asking for Gospel ministry. There is an open invitation to help lay some firm foundations for the future of the Indigenous Church. AIM has many opportunities for you to get involved in mission in Australia’s backyard. Find out more here.
Mission Adventures offers short term mission trips for groups. A typical program will include four days of Christian missions training at our YWAM centre here in Darwin, followed by a seven to ten day cross-cultural outreach where you might be volunteering in orphanages, teaching in schools overseas, or simply offering practical help in a local community here in the Northern Territory of Australia. Find out more here.
Get in touch and I will e-mail out the mission representatives in the Northern Territory to see who is available currently.
Email us and we will contact across missions/language groups to help get you get started with your project.
