We support Matt and Rachel McNulty in their work for WEC Australia. Based in Perth, WA, they are part of the Australian Leadership Team, supporting, caring for, and training members. They are also involved in setting the direction of ministry in Australia.
They visited the UK last summer and now they're back in Perth having a second summer. The leadership team they are part of is spread across Australia, but they enjoyed planning and prayer time in January face-to-face with the team.
Matt’s primary role is in youth ministry, networking with church youth groups, youth camps and university students.
This leads to recruiting and training young people for various mission experiences, with four stages of training leading to short-term overseas placements and long-term involvement with WEC ministries among the least evangelised people groups of Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and Europe.
Matt also works on WEC media projects (particularly the development of digital resources), builds relationships with local churches, preaches and raises the profile of mission among Christians in Western Australia.
He has a specialist role in conducting training in the Myers-Briggs personality assessment tool and the “Belbin” team-building programme.
Rachel is the Personnel Development Coordinator for WEC workers in Australia and Australian members serving overseas. She also manages the small WEC centre in Perth where they live.
This has a conference room used by many groups for prayer times, information and training sessions and has accommodation for WEC trainees and members as well as administrative offices where she and Matt work alongside a small team. Rachel was recently appointed to the governing board of WEC Australia which meets four times a year in different cities to oversee the many different areas of the ministry in Australia and overseas.
Matt and Rachel are grateful for the prayers and support of churches in the UK and Australia as they seek to follow God’s guidance in setting priorities for their many roles and responding to the opportunities to mobilise God’s people for mission as these are steadily increasing year by year.
