The Imagine Project 2
Imagine Project within BCA's mission
With a commitment to reaching Australia for Christ, the Imagine Project as developed in partnership with the Diocese of Tasmania, is the latest fresh ministry angle in a long line for the Bush Church Aid Society (BCA).
National Director of BCA, Canon Brian Roberts says that 'We need to recognise that the Anglicans of the future will not look the same as those who came before them. We need to meet people where they are at.'
The Imagine Project is one way in which BCA can connect with people in an innovative way.
BCA is committed to the current positions of Will Briggs with ‘Connections’ in Somerset and Meredith Campbell with ‘the Heartz Project’ in the Huon. We are also proud to be involved in the development and support the newest addition to the Project in Launceston.
With a focus on leadership development, the third element of the Imagine Project provides an opportunity to see more people working for the gospel in regional and rural Australia. As Paul Cavanough of the Diocese states, the aim is to foster students who are then 'ready, equipped and excited about serving in the local communities'.
The development of leaders at a base roots level will allow for continued ministry throughout Australia. As those training to be teachers and nurses are deployed to regional and rural Australia, they will be able to make a positive contribution to the spread of the gospel in the area they are placed.
It is important that as we seek to reach the lost we do not stand dormant. Today’s culture often presents a distrust of the church and the bible. Whilst keeping the clear message of the gospel we need to reach people in new and creative ways, breaking through worldly barriers and gently bringing them to Christ.
BCA stands side by side with the Diocese of Tasmania as it reaches out to the lost of Tasmania through new and creative means.
