Indigenous Ministries

Indigenous Ministry Sunday, 11th July 2021

1. Pray for a consistent Government approach in addressing Aboriginal issues such as health, education and incarceration.

2. Pray that God would raise up godly Christian leaders for the Aboriginal church and that they would be well trained.

3. Pray that existing Christian leaders would be able to wisely hand over leadership to the next generation.

4. Pray for the many young people in Aboriginal communities who have never heard the gospel, that they would have opportunities to hear and that many would come to Christ.

5. Pray that the gospel would reach remote Aboriginal communities.

Wider Indigenous Christian Community, NSW

Rick and Kayleen Manton serve the Mount Druitt Indigenous Church and the wider Indigenous Christian community. They have served for many decades in such ministry in one form or another with Rick seeking to mentor younger Aboriginal pastors and leaders.

In addition to this, Rick has served for many years as the chairman of the Bimbadeen Aboriginal Training College which is currently in search of a new meeting venue. From time to time Bimbadeen runs short courses such as the Langham preaching course.

Rick and Kayleen are based in western Sydney which has a large Indigenous population. They serve as APWM missionaries and are dependent on partners for their financial needs.

This ministry needs partners who will support the Mantons as they seek to help the Indigenous church grow in its capacity to serve Indigenous Australians.

If you would like to receive their prayer letter then please email the APWM office —

Mount Magnet, Western Australia

Mount Magnet, Western Australia, is a mining town located 6 hours drive north-west of Perth. It is a regional centre with a population of approximately 500 people.

The town has a significant Aboriginal population and for this reason, APWM has entered into a partnership with PIM to help fund Alvin & Narelle Chai’s ministry.
