Church Planting Study Becoming a Reality
It has been almost two years since David Robertson completed study of Church Planting and Development with Kingsley College. His final project for the subject was to draft a proposal for a church plant. David’s pastor, Hugh Cameron, asked if this proposal could become a reality. But David said “No,” he was happy serving in the Capital Wesleyan church in Townsville. But God has had other ideas…
At the recent North Queensland conference David and Stacey Robertson and their team announced the plans to plant Hope Church in Elliot Springs, Townsville. The church plant will be supported by both existing Townsville churches and the North Qld district.
David said of the church plant, “Hope Church at Elliot Springs is gaining momentum. The church plant will be located 15kms south of Townsville in a new satellite city that is at present only made up of a handful of display homes. At its completion the 1,600 hectares will be home to over 26,000 people.”
David and Stacey are forming a team and working toward a launch for the church in February 2019.
At the college, we are excited to see students putting their study into practice. This is not the first time that a project in the Church Planting subject has led to an actual church plant. Nor is this the only example of how a Kingsley student has applied their study to practical ministry. But it is a recent, exciting example.
Please be praying for this particular church plant, and also for the many Kingsley College students across the country who are learning, growing in confidence, and applying what they have learned.
