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.
The leadership group of Youth Ministries Australia (YMA), together with CCCA's National Director, Allan Gibson, wish to announce a transition of leadership within YMA.
As of the 1st of January 2014, we're excited to announce that Shayne Hamilton will step into the National Leadership role of YMA. Shayne and his wife Melissa have many years of experience serving with CCCA through Youth Ministries Australia.
With this appointment, we also announce the departure of Travis and Pixi Johnson from CCCA from the 28th of February 2014. They will be continuing in ministry to focus on their passion for developing a story-formed approach to discipleship.
We ask that you join us in prayer as we navigate this transition together that God's kingdom might be extended, and that His people are sustained and released into His mission.
