Mission to Queensland: Ron and Paula Turner
Serving in Blackwater, Queensland
Ron and Paula have a heart to see a movement of disciple making through-out the outback of Queensland, from the Flinders Highway in the north to the border of NSW in the south, and west to the Northern Territory border.
Many people in the outback live with uncertainty about their future, especially with the ongoing drought, and a growing sense of losing control of their destiny. Coupled with this has been the steady demise of churches in these towns.
Ron and Paula believe the time has come to start bringing the hope of Christ back to these communities.
They have a vision to plant 20 hubs (churches) in 20 towns by the year 2020. Because of the changing nature of many towns in the west ‘we believe that the hubs (churches) planted will be simple in design and flexible to change, meeting in houses, mine camps, farms or public places; focussed on reaching out to those who do not know Christ and discipling them to be missionaries in their own hometowns.
