You would think that in a country that is almost exactly the same size as the United States of America (not counting Alaska) but with only 23,000,000 people compared to the U.S. with over 330,000,000, that we would have plenty of room. But Australia is one of the more urbanized countries in the world. Over 70% of the population lives in the capital cities and most of the rest is in regional town-centres. Only about 5% of the people here actually live anywhere near what you would call the "outback."
But that means they are accessible. Ministry in city-centres can result in many people coming into contact with the gospel. And Australia needs the gospel. We are not only urbanized, we are secularized. 1 in 4 Australians have no religious beliefs. Fewer than 1 in 10 attends any sort of religious service as frequently as once per month. Australia is called "the lucky country" for a number of reasons: great weather, amazing natural resources, an incredibly generous social welfare system. But every weekend Australians are scouring the country, engaging in all sorts of activities - from Australian rules football to pub-crawls - trying to fill a void in their lives that no amount of luck can fill.
We have some great Australian Christian partners who are looking for North Americans to come and help with take advantage of the opportunities for ministry that are here. Would God want you to work in the lucky country?
