The good news of Jesus is for all people. This gospel is continuing to grow in a variety of cultures across the world, yet there are still many who have not heard the gospel of Jesus. It is our privilege to partner with others in gospel ministry both in Australia and overseas, including:
Mackenzies (FIEC – Singleton)
Scott MacKenzie is married to Wendy. They have four children. Scott oversees the church plant: Singleton Evangelical Church, including responsibility for preaching and teaching.
We also partner with other churches as a member of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches who promote the planting of evangelical churches throughout Australia.
Simon and Tirzah McKee with Abby and Sophia serving among Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. Simon works as the Coordinating Chaplain at Darwin Prison. Tirzah teaches at Marrara Christian College. Together they help coordinate the Katherine Christian Convention and provide pastoral care in remote communities as time permits. The McKees were members of MEC for many years and we still consider them part of our MEC family

James (South Asia)
Bill & Robyn James have served in various support/administration roles with Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia. From mid-year 2016,Bill has been assigned to a role that manages finances and reporting for several language projects in Asia. This role is undertaken for a group of cooperating mission organisations working together to help people access the Bible in a form that communicates God’s message accurately and clearly in the language best understood. With Robyn’s support and the partnership of MEC, this role is carried out remotely from Maitland.
