Ministry Apprentices

At MBM, we’re committed to raising up more workers for the harvest. That’s why we invite people to undertake a 2 year, full-time, hands on ministry apprenticeship. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get a taste of frontline gospel work, whilst being trained by the MBM staff.

To read and be encouraged by some of their reflections and stories, please visit their blog or sign up for their individual newsletters.

2020 Apprentices
Our ministry apprentices need to raise approximately $30,000 per year which is made possible through generous givers who might prayerfully consider giving:
10 people giving $58 per week
50 people giving $50 per month
125 people giving $20 per month

I love Jesus and love finding creative ways to share the Gospel! MTS is a way for me to explore and grow in teaching others, while also having the awesome privilege of witnessing people see Jesus more clearly!
Josh Onden-Lim

For most of my life I thought I was a Christian. As I became an adult, I appreciated what Jesus’ death meant for me and that I’m saved by grace alone. I used to work as a physiotherapist but now I want to equip others for evangelism in the workplace. In my spare time I enjoy doing all things soccer related and learning urban dance choreography.

I’m passionate about King Jesus & His saving message. I am super thankful for this opportunity to point youth & women of Sydney’s west to Jesus! I’m sympathetic to a Nicolas Cage film, short walks on the beach and soft tacos. I look forward to experiencing more of God’s faithfulness as we partner for His gospel work in 2020.

Rehan Prins
My life was turned upside down when I realised God loved and pursued me by sending Jesus to suffer on the cross for me. I am married to Kartika. I eat tasty Korean fried chicken. I wake early in the morning to watch Barcelona and Lionel Messi create beautiful football. I loved being a Physiotherapist but now have the best job in the world as Youth Pastor at MBM Youth!
Kartika Prins
I was changed forever when I encountered the love of God at university. You’ll easily find me immersed in deep & long chats with people, cooking or gulping down asian food with my husband Rehan. I love finding encouraging resources to fuel both my own and others discipleship to Jesus!
Josie Allen
I love Jesus, and I love being able to be part of His transforming work in this world! I am so excited for this chance to spend so much more time meeting with people, and sharing the gospel. One of my favourite things about God is that He is faithful and unchanging—I can trust him through all times and all circumstances!

Jethro Dickens

I grew up in Darwin and committed my life to Jesus as a teenager, through the faithful witness of others. I moved to Sydney, studied engineering at UNSW and married my wife Alice. After a few years of working and speaking about Jesus to my colleagues, I was been encouraged to consider full-time ministry. I’m keen to see how God might use us to build His kingdom at MBM Rooty Hill!
