Carey Sunday

For nearly 100 years Carey Baptist College has been training leaders for ministry in Baptist churches. On Sunday 1 August, we celebrated that partnership with churches around Aotearoa New Zealand.
In recent years Carey has grown considerably. I’m keen for you to know about two exciting developments:

  1. All of our courses, including our Ministry Training programme, are now available by distance from anywhere in New Zealand. Your emerging leaders can now experience a world-class formation programme without leaving their local church or community. They don’t need to come to Carey. We’ll come to them!  
  2. Carey’s Centre for Lifelong Learning is now developing online training resources not just for pastors and leaders, but for anyone in your church wanting to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Life groups and ministry leaders are now able to access live, high-quality Bible and theology teaching from the comfort of their own living rooms.

To help you connect your leaders and life groups with Carey, we’ve put together the following resource pack (scroll down to see the resources).
It’s a privilege to partner with you in the training of leaders and the resourcing of disciples, for the sake of Jesus and his gospel.
Yours in Christ

A Sermon from Michael Rhodes

Have you ever found yourself wondering, “What’s the point of the people of God?” Dr Michael Rhodes invites you to join him in listening to how Scripture, from Abraham to Matthew, Isaiah to Acts, calls the church to embrace God’s purposes for his people.

Discussion Questions and Further Reading

We have prepared some discussion questions for you to think on or engage with small groups, and we have also provided extra reading from Michael.

Free Webinar: FOCUS on Prayer

FOCUS on prayer: learning how to talk to God when you’re suffering, or angry, or furious, or complaining (with Dr Michael Rhodes).
As a special Carey Sunday gift we’d like to offer free access to Michael’s webinar recording he gave as part of the Carey Centre for Lifelong Learning FOCUS series.
