What a blessing it is that our good Lord doesn’t only answer our prayers, but…
Missions at Trinity
This semester Mike Webb has come among us to raise the profile of missions at Trinity and help our leadership think and pray through this important area. Trinity News caught up with Mike.
Hi Mike, please tell us a bit about your story.
My name is Mike Webb and together with my wife, Fiona and our kids Angus, Lachlan, Max and Amelia I have just returned from SE Asia where we had the joy of serving with Pioneers for the last 15 years.
It was during this time that I was able to pastor, train and mobilise teams to be gospel bearers to isolated people groups in a large archipelago, working with people from Pakistan, Papua, Australia, Brazil and the USA. The highlight of our time was praying together – each person petitioning God in their own tongue.
God’s heart for the lost is strong in my own heart. Combine this with my God-given love for teaching and journeying with people, we could see God directing me into equipping future missionaries, and he has opened the door for me to study a PhD in Intercultural Studies at Biola University in California.
What are you hoping to accomplish at Trinity?
My journey to join Trinity started last year with many conversations and prayer with Don about life and missions. In July Don called me and asked whether I would be willing to spend four months putting together a proposal for incorporating missions into the College. Needless to say, I was excited! Being at Trinity this semester, meeting up with students and the staff and hearing their journeys has been such a joy.
As we pray and work through this process, what has emerged is the importance of working with our gospel partners both in WA and Australia. Through talking with these partners, we are gradually gaining an understanding of how Trinity can be part of equipping people with a strong theological missiology from which they can draw to help reach the world! Please join us in prayer as we continue this process and seek God’s wisdom. Pray that God will be in every step as we seek his glory.
