A Message from John Crowther, Director of Mission & Ministry

A new agency of Fresh Hope, aptly named Mission & Ministry (M&M), has now officially launched out of the Rhodes Ministry Centre.

This agency is the amalgamation of our existing ministry services into one team with 4 strategic function areas, purposefully designed to sharpen our acumen and enhance strategic impact.

These 4 areas are:

  1. Transformation
  2. Spiritual Leadership
  3. Pioneering & Mission and
  4. Resourcing

The current climate in culture and society is one of dramatic change, part of which is a growing adversarial posture towards the Western Church.

In that context the heart of this team is to be an agile, adaptive and adventurous team that relationally engages and partners with Fresh Hope churches; their mission leaders, systems and strategies, to align contextually with the redemptive purposes of Christ and His Kingdom.

The hope of this labour is vibrant and flourishing faith communities that enable current and future generations to pursue the abundant life with God.

Over the following e-news editions we will unpack for you each of the 4 strategic function areas; what they do, the staff that serve in them, and how that relates to you as churches and individuals on the frontline of the Kingdom advance.
