Introducing Steve and Tanya Dejong

As you know we've been searching for a 4th Minister to join our Ministry Team.  

Steve and Tanya visited Dubbo earlier in the year with an eye to looking into regional ministry.  Steve then applied for the position in Dubbo and was interviewed by the Elders at our November meeting. He has been invited to come to Dubbo Presbyterian Church for 12 months and has accepted!

This is a great answer to prayer. As a church we have been stretched at every level of church from team member to  team leaders and  ministry staff. By God's grace we have had a period of fast growth in the last 3 years since COVID. We've had lots of new people join church, new people coming to know Jesus and continued growth at church@10.

Steve brings a great enthusiasm and love for Jesus and desire for people to mature in Christ. We have still to work out the exact areas he will be working in, but there are a few possibiities!

Steve will start in February. Steve is currently finishing up his role at EV church in Erina, and they will be moving to Dubbo in February. Tanya is working as a Nurse. We are looking forward to their arrival.

Please be praying for them both as they say goodbye to friends, finish up ministries at church,  and prepare to move to Dubbo in 2024.
