Ministry Training apprenticeships have been an integral part of The Lakes ministry culture since we began 18 years ago. Trainees have been equipped for a life time of ministry and we’ve greatly benefitted from their ministry amongst us – a double investment. As we grow we anticipate this investment to be increasingly strategic. In 2020 we’d like to offer a second MTS traineeship and continue to train Mel Clement in her third year of MTS.
To meet our 2020 goals we need to raise 50% of the costs for two trainees before the end of November. Our target is $30,000. One off gifts or pledges for monthly contributions will help us reach our target. Anything over and above our target will be used towards an MTS Futures fund to ensure finances don’t become a barrier in the years ahead.
If you’re able to give towards either Mel or the second apprenticeship for 2020 we’d like to hear from you via our electronic pledge form form here. Please use to also let us know of your current giving to MTS so we can budget for 2020 and report on whether we’ve reached our target.
If you’d like to give towards the apprenticeship, bank details are as follows:

Financial gifts should be marked ‘MTSMel’ or ‘MTS2nd’, or ‘MTS’ to contribute evenly to both trainees. For more details contact Michael Plaege or Maurice Wrightson.
