Did you stick up for Jesus?
More than 670 people travelled from as far as Darwin, North Queensland, Tamworth, Canberra and the NSW South Coast to attend Summer School at Tamborine Mountain. Hundreds chose to ‘stick up for Jesus’ as a symbol of their love for Jesus Christ and their commitment to God’s mission worldwide.

New Vision launched at Summer School!
CMS launched a new vision to see ‘a world that knows Jesus’ at Summer Conferences across Australia in January, including Summer School 2013 at Mount Tamborine. CMS is asking for a renewed commitment from the Australian church to engage in cross-cultural mission.
“In a world that often seems hopeless we want people to see that they can find meaning in this world and hope in the world to come through knowing Jesus,” said Rev Jeremy Gehrmann, General Secretary of CMS Queensland with Northern NSW. “CMS is here to serve local churches in Australia as they seek to be part of God’s world mission.”
Reaching ‘gospel-poor peoples’ for Christ is a key priority in the new vision. The gospel-poor are those people who would have little or no opportunity to hear about Jesus without outside help.
“From the historically Christian countries in Europe, to the politically and socially complicated Middle East and beyond, there are many millions of people who need to know Jesus,” said Rev Peter Rodgers, Federal Secretary of CMS Australia.
In focusing on reaching gospel-poor peoples, CMS is placing a stronger emphasis on evangelism and church planting. CMS will continue to place workers in countries like France, Spain and Slovenia and throughout the Muslim world.
The new vision also places a greater focus on reaching Australia’s near neighbours for Jesus Christ. This year, new ministries will begin in Fiji and East Timor.
“On our doorstep are countries like Indonesia and Cambodia, where millions of people urgently need Christ,” said Rev Rodgers. “CMS hopes to place more workers in neighbouring countries like these – to further grow ministries of evangelism, church planting, Bible teaching and training, as well as to start new ministries.”
In this rapidly changing world, there remains a strategic need for CMS to work alongside the Church in Africa, Asia, Latin America and post-Christian Europe to reach their own communities through equipping Christian leaders for church and society.
“The impact of mission is multiplied through equipping local church leaders in solid biblical teaching and giving them skills for sharing God’s word effectively,” said CMS-QNNSW General Secretary Rev Jeremy Gehrmann.
As part of CMS’s partnership with churches, the organisation will also be expanding its cross-cultural ministry training program across Australia by offering cross-cultural ministry apprenticeships.
