PERTH, AUSTRALIA TEAM

Artists, Streeties, & Jesus
An alcoholic, a musician, and a street preacher walk into a church. It sounds like the start of tasteless joke. But it’s a commonplace scene at churchfreo, an MTW church plant in Freemantle, Australia. Located smack dab in the middle of the hardest part of the city, the church reaches out to “streeties” (homeless), addicts, a vast artistic community, and other eclectics, with the tangible love of Jesus.

Eclectic Fruit
The scope of our ministry in Perth not only includes sharing the gospel, but also mentoring young ministry leaders. As new leaders mature, new ministries take off. We’re forming a second churchfreo congregation. We work closely with Trinity Theological College. We’re building a partnership among like-minded pastors and missional workers. As members of God’s eclectic family work together, each playing a unique role, the body of Christ will impact the city of Perth with the life-changing power of the gospel.
