Welcome to Ambassadors for Christ International – Australia

Our team is made up of individuals who are passionate about accelerating the spread of the gospel through local churches. We turn up to work every day because we want to see local churches in Australia become effective in evangelism. We want to teach believers to become effective witnesses in their daily lives and relationships. The problem we are trying to solve is this: People all around us have little interest in the God who loves them and calls them to him. The way we are going to solve this problem is by helping churches move from event-driven, leader-owned evangelism to congregations with a culture of living as witnesses in their daily lives. We believe that as we begin to teach people how to witness in the normal relationships of their lives we will see more Australians than ever being invited to church services, entering through the doors of church and accepting Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
