There is no better thing to do than to immerse yourself in gospel ministry. Your church needs you to do this and Jesus wants you to do this. Whether it’s chatting to your school mates about Jesus, or helping out in your church with Youth Group, teaching Sunday school or supporting your youth leader. It’s what we are called to do as Christians.
Right now, you may not know what you want to do when you leave school but doing a MTS apprenticeship may be something worth considering.
As an MTS Apprenticeship you get the opportunity to ‘live the life’ of a full time gospel worker. This MTS option will help you work out:
- how you’re wired, and;
- where you might plug in to grow God’s Kingdom in the future.
Right now there are over 280 apprentices who have immersed themselves in ministry in more than 150 churches.
Immerse yourself in ministry and consider a future that includes an MTS apprenticeship

Worst drought in 60 years.

They boil the fruits for several hours to remove the poison before eating them … I doubt we will survive in the next few months.”
