Thinking Matters, an apologetics organization in New Zealand, is looking for someone who’d like to be an apologist missionary in their country for a year. This is the organization that brought me, Brett, and Jay Watts (from Life Training Institute) out there to speak a couple of years ago, and we had a fantastic time. I loved the people there—they were warm and hospitable, and of course the country is beautiful.
The culture is very secular, but there’s a growing interest in apologetics (and even a few well-known apologists, like Matthew Flannagan), and you’d have a chance to help fan that flame, bringing glory to God by encouraging believers and reaching out to non-believers through apologetics:
Thinking Matters New Zealand Foundation would like to extend an invitation to a suitable apologetics graduate or mature worker who wants to gain practical experience volunteering in New Zealand.
This is an opportunity for someone who can raise their own support from a home church or mission organization to complete a one year full-time ministry placement that gives them the opportunity to serve the wider Church in New Zealand – based in beautiful Tauranga, on the East Coast of New Zealand….
The commencement date and period of commitment would be negotiable – but a 1 year placement would ideally be sought, with the possibility of extending into a longer term position if appropriate.
At the end of your term you will have both gained ministry experience, and also had an opportunity to build strategic relationships with strong, apologetics-friendly churches throughout New Zealand which could open further doors of ministry opportunity.
Learn more about the position and its requirements here, and you can hear more from Rodney Lake about Thinking Matters in this short video Brett shot while we were over there. Pass this along to anyone you think might be interested!
