THREE STUDENTS completed formal studies at Trinity Theological College in May.
Prior to graduation Ministry of the Word students John Gill, Peter Blauw, and Mosese Fangupo were already serving in either Lay Ministry or supply ministry placements.
John Gill has been in Lay Ministry at Merthyr Uniting Church in New Farm, Brisbane, while studying and looks forward to continuing in that placement.
“We have just planted a new church within a church at Merthyr.
“So we have grown it from a zero community to about 60 or 70 people. I am looking forward to growing that even more.”
Peter Blauw is currently doing supply ministry but hopes to eventually work in rural communities.
“I want to bring some hope to those people,” he said.
Mosese Fangupo is currently in supply ministry at Rosewood which involves looking after three congregations.
“I don’t know what is going to happen in the future but I am focusing on my supply at the moment,” he said.
To congratulate them on their achievement, the Uniting Church Investment Service presented portable communion sets to the graduates.
John Gill, Peter Blauw, and Mosese Fangupo are three diverse graduates who will serve the church in many different areas in the future.
