A Great Place to Live – A Tough Place to Work
With 37,000 miles of shoreline and abundant natural resources, Australia has all the advantages. Enjoying a comfortable, prosperous lifestyle, Australians feel little need for dependence on God. Since a peak in 1959 shortly after a Billy Graham Crusade, church attendance has steadily declined to the extent that, even with some new church plants under way, every week there is one less church in Australia than the week before. Australian society is characterized by tolerant cultural-relativism. The most common response to any attempt to introduce people to the gospel is “if it works for you .. .” Come and see for yourself what a great place this is, but how desolate the spiritual landscape is.
Church Planting in Adelaide
We envision a close relationship with a core of churches committed to planting churches that will allow TEAM to provide personnel to work alongside Australian church planters. The goal will be to recruit and train an army of church planters to plant churches beginning in Adelaide and reaching the ends of the earth.
TEAM-Australia has already developed a number of partnerships with key Australian groups to encourage and facilitate church planting. Some of the soil is incredibly hard but there is good soil, if you look for it. Could God use you to help scatter some seed?
