The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) is a fellowship of churches and pastors across Australia. These churches are committed to praying for one another and continuing to promote planting of evangelical churches throughout Australia. Their pastors seek to provide support and encouragement to one another. The FIEC began in 2002 when a small group of evangelical pastors had the simple aim of encouraging one another to proclaim Christ and plant more churches across Australia. In 2018, there are over 30 member churches across Australia [of which Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church is one]. The FIEC is aiming, with God’s help, to plant 100 churches across Australia during the next 15 years.

The vision of the Overseas Council of Australia is to provide churches in the developing world with the leadership they need. Strategically, OCA focuses on supporting theological colleges in the developing world, to train a steady supply of competent leaders to ensure the church matures in line with the Word of God in a way that is sensitive to the local context.
At Wagga Evangelical church we have a wonderful opportunity to partner with the church in the developing world by assisting with the training of leaders. Currently we support a number of students at the Madras Theological College in India.

SCRIPTURE TEACHING WAGGA
Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church helps resource Special Religious Education (SRE) in our local area. SRE gives students in NSW a safe place to explore and discover the Bible’s answers to the big questions of life. As a partner church locally we provide volunteers to teach in local schools and contribute financially to the ministry as a whole.
OVERSEAS MISSION – CAMBODIA
Cameron and Lara Blair both became christians while they were studying at university in the early 1990’s. Their own experience of life was that those years after school were crucial for making life’s big decisions. The Blair’s have seen that Cambodian students don’t have the same opportunities to hear about Jesus on campus as they did. They have moved their family to Cambodia on a mission to help reach the thousands of students at the dozens of universities in Cambodia, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Wagga Evangelical Church supports the Blairs financially and in prayer. You can find out more about the Blairs at: http://blairs.id.au/author/cameronfeva-org/
