From the Director

G’day MTS Challenge Conference Delegates

One of the things I’ve discovered during the organization and lead up to this conference is how much I really hate administration. It’s not just that I don’t have the gift of administration, I think I have a gift for hating it.

However as bad as the organizational process has been, I have persevered on. I’ve done this because I believe in the vision the MTS Challenge Conference has for ministry in Tasmania. I believe this conference is an essential part of challenging people to give their lives to the ministry of the church, whether in paid or unpaid, sitting in the pew or standing up the front.

The Bible tells us that Tassie is full of people ripe for the harvest who need to hear the good news. What we need is a generation of supporters, leaders and preachers who will stand up and step up to be part of a movement that seeks to bring the good news of Christ to Tassie.

Moreover I’m proud to be a part of this movement and Conference has been responsible for challenging and supporting the current generation of leaders, preachers at our churches and bible colleges. It’s my hope and prayer that this year my (and our committee’s) efforts can lead you to join us in this vision for Tassie.

It’s my aim that over this weekend you think about how blessed we are to know Christ, and leave challenged and enthused for bringing the good news of salvation to your Tassie mates. If we can achieve that, I’ll rest happy. My toil has not been in vain.

God Bless
Mike Jolly
