Ministering to regional / rural Australia

Bruce Bennett, Senior Minister at Orange Evangelical Church speaks about the great ministry opportunities in regional and rural Australia… and with them, the challenges.

Country towns are ‘islands’ and churches can reach whole communities, dig deeper into people lives. They also respond well to leadership and those willing to ‘give it a crack’. But alongside of those blessings are the isolation, the ministry discontent that modern communication and clashes with Protestant Christianity that has ‘conquered and divided itself’.
