At Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church, the Ministry Team is never just the paid staff and pastors. We believe that Jesus has given every Christian the gifts and opportunities to serve (minister) to their fellow Christians and to the community around them. We see this happening at Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church week-in and week-out as people express love to one another, pray for one-another, serve, provide, train and teach.
Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church is a church where everyone is a part of the ministry team.
Our staff team is led by Peter Blanch, took on the role of Pastor in 2007 when the Church was planted. Over the years, we’ve invested in more pastors to help us grow God’s family together. Each of our Pastoral staff are responsible for helping our church family grow in Christ together:
- To help us all express our fellowship in Christ, Stephen Cox is our Membership pastor.
- To help us all serve Jesus and his church, Stephen is also our Ministry pastor.
- To help us all proclaim the gospel of Jesus, Tim Flint is our Mission pastor.
- To help us all know God more deeply through His word, Peter Blanch is our Maturity pastor.
MINISTRY TRAINEES (MTS)
As a Church family we want to train more people in ministry. MTS (the Ministry Training Strategy) is an Australian movement that seeks to raise up future generations of gospel workers by inviting them to do hands-on ministry with a trainer for 2 years before going onto full-time theological education.
We believe that Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church has a responsibility to encourage young Christians to seriously consider full-time ministry.
