Rural ministry musters courage

THE ANNUAL Rural Muster will take place from 27-29 April at the Jondaryan Woolshed.

Hosted by Oakey and District Uniting Church, the muster will place particular focus on assisting Lay ministry teams.

Coordinator Julie Savage said the church has taken up the challenge of working to support Lay people in rural communities.

“The main aim of the 2007 Rural Muster is to encourage, inspire, uplift, and equip congregational members of small rural churches in that ongoing presence,” she said.

“The Muster will provide participants with resources they can adapt for their own setting.”

“Each session will be practical, interactive and multi-sensory and will provide resources that participants will be able to take away and use in their congregations and faith communities.”

Guest Presenter and Workshop Facilitator will be Ivan Hewitt a part-time Community Minister and lay person with a passion for encouraging people to seek out their God-given gifts and abilities, equipping them for involvement in the local congregation.

The cost of the conference includes meals, sessions and onsite accommodation.
