We’ve just launched our crowd-funding campaign to raise $5,000 for “The Parting Gift”, and we’d like to ask your help.
"The Parting Gift" is a 5 minute short film, illustrating the Christian perspective on how God relentlessly pursues all of us with His love. The film is being made in partnership with Student Life with the goal of showing it to thousands of university students to help start conversations about Jesus across Australia.
How can you help?
The more people who find out about our project the better! It would be a huge help if you could share this video with your friends.

It is with pleasure that we announce the appointment of a new Ministry Leader to head up FamilyLife Australia, as a field ministry of CCCA.
Tim Freyer will take up the role from February 1st, 2014. Along with his wife Liz they will lead FamilyLife into the future.
We also wish to acknowledge and thank Peter and Lynn Menhennitt for carrying the ministry load as interim leaders for the past 2 years. They plan to semi-retire but we are especially glad to announce that they will remain on staff part time with FamilyLife Australia, supporting Tim with admin. They have been great role models, good friends, and hard workers for many years within FamilyLife.
Tim and Liz are well equipped for the role having met and married while on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ and having served with us for a combined total of 28 years of full time service. They most recently served in North Africa for many years before returning to Australia in February this year to have a new baby and take up permanent residency here in Melbourne. Tim and Liz have three preschool children Benjamin, Samuel and their baby daughter Charis. So they bring a young family experience to the role as well as a good understanding of evangelism and discipleship.
FamilyLife is part of Campus Crusade for Christ Australia and so they will be working as part of a peer team of Ministry Leaders seeking to build movements of spiritual multiplication in the community.
The Freyers have the full support of the new National Director of CCCA, Allan Gibson, along with the National Leadership Team of CCCA. We have been praying long and hard for this and we see God’s hand bringing them to us in such a way that only our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ could.
Our prayers are with the Freyers and the Menhennitts as they transition and we would ask that you continue to pray and support them over coming years. Please pray that FamilyLife would continue reaching out to families with the transforming love of Christ and see movements of multiplication across Australia.
