OVERSEAS MISSION POINTS
For millennia, Christians have undertaken a two-pronged mission of sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ and helping those in need – all to God’s glory. Today, supplementing our local ministries in Australia, the Belmore Road church continues that ministry in several overseas mission points.
Bago, Negros Oriental, Philippines
Supporting local preachers from Bago Church of Christ, constructing church meeting places, helping the disadvantaged.
Sathupalli, Telangana State, India
Supporting Sathupalli Children’s Home which serves orphans and disadvantaged children.
Lae, Morobi Province, Papua New Guinea
Supporting local evangelism in PNG, and projects at the Boundary Road Church of Christ, Lae.
Nias, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia
Supporting Jochebed Children’s Home near Gunungsitoli, Nias island.
While 2/3 members of Churches of Christ live outside the US, the overwhelming majority of theologically trained members live and serve within the US. Churches outside the US are often led by foreign missionaries or missionary-trained local leaders. God has used them to further his kingdom in great ways.
GCS partners with Harding School of Theology (HST) in Memphis, USA, to make the Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (MACM) degree available for church leaders around the world. The MACM prepares graduates for the practical work of leading a local congregation. Classes will primarily be taken by distance education, allowing students to remain within their home country.
Concurrent involvement in congregational life helps make the MACM even more practical and allows the training to have an immediate impact on the local church.
