GOSPEL PARTNERS

We seek to grow the kingdom of God in other places by partnerships with our Gospel Partners.

Rev. Capt Rod and

Christene Oldfield

Cloncurry

The Oldfields have served with BCA in Cooper Pedy, Norfolk and King Islands and since 2015 have worked in Cloncurry which had no minister for a period of years. Their ‘parish’ is enormous and they have had great success serving their local folk and reaching others by going on safari regularly, North to the Gulf and East along the Savannah Way.

 

Rod is a carpenter who trained as an evangelist with Church Army and was ordained in Coober Pedy.

Peter & Nice Armati

Mirassol, Brazil

Peter and Nice have been serving in Brazil since 2010. Nice is fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English and Peter has needed to become proficient in Portugese. In their area of Brazil  the gospel is clouded by syncretism or pentecostal prosperity theology. So far, they have not found any church in either Mirassol or Rio Preto which teaches faithfully from God’s Word.

Over the years, many people have come to Nice and Peter by God; people seeking the truth. Some of them have given their lives to God. One of the first converts now leads a small group studying the bible each week. Peter and Nice have distributed over 1,000 bibles to cancer patients in their area and are continuing to reach the poor and illiterate with the gospel.  Peter and Nice are not sent by a mission organisation, and St James is largely responsible for their support and pastoral oversight.

James Kinghorn

Thailand

James was the childrens’ minister at St James and was called to seek endorsement with Pioneers and go to Thailand as part of the team led by the Malones. After working in Bankok slums, the team was led to go to the area of Isaan from which most of their contact had originated. It is the North-Easternmost region in the kingdom and is also the poorest and driest. It has about the same population of Australia. The team commenced in Ubon Ratchanthani, and in mid 2016 James moved into a local village Baan Pladuk.

 

His vision is to reach and work with children and see them learn about the God who loves and cares and to help them become believers and good citizens.
