Sydney Chinese church ministry positions - 2011
SCCCA English is conducting the 2011 survey of open ministry positions in Sydney Chinese churches - starting today. Church leaders have the opportunity to fill out a web form about the details of the ministry position.

We will be visiting some Bible colleges to talk to students about Chinese church ministry in August and September, and this will help us talk to students about specific ministry opportunities.

You can find the web form here: Sydney Chinese church ministry positions - 2011

The web form will accept entries up until 24 July so make sure your ministry position is on that list!
