Current MTSF Scholars

Aimee Openshaw

Ministry Apprentice


“I first heard about Jesus during SRE classes at Warrawee Public School. As a result I decided to become a Christian in Year 1, but my first experience of belonging to a church community wasn’t until Year 8, when friends from school invited me along to Elevate Youth. Through uni I’ve served at St James by being a part of D Groups, Thailand mission trips, and Elevate Youth leadership. I’m really excited for the opportunity the Ministry Training Apprenticeship will provide me to give my full-time attention to serving in a range of ministries across St James and growing in Biblical knowledge and Bible-teaching skills.”

Tom Wilson

Ministry Apprentice


“I became a Christian when I was 7 years old and have been discipled at St James for over a decade. I’ve grown up in wonderful Christian family and am very grateful for their love for Jesus. I finished high school in 2015 at Knox Grammar School and completed the Youthworks Year 13 gap year program the following year. I’ve been working as a Scripture teacher at Barrenjoey High School the past two years and completed a year of an arts degree at Macquarie University last year. I’m really excited to be a part of the St James team and am looking forward to the opportunities MTS will provide as I seek to grow in my love for God and in my service of Him.”

Chris Rooleht

1st Year Moore College


“I am currently studying the first year of the Moore College Bachelor of Theology, enabling me to give concerted effort to youth ministry here at St James while also developing my theological knowledge. I am grateful for the support of the MTSF, and thankful to God to be part of a body of believers who value the empowering and equipping of young leaders such as myself. May St James continue to be an environment where potential is identified and nurtured for the sake of God’s glory.”
