Working with Talua Theological Training Institute and Trutok Media to support the Ni-Vanuatu church.
We moved to Vanuatu in 2013 to teach at a rural Bible college. Since then, we have served at two colleges, supported mission to the unreached, planted a church, preached God’s word in many contexts, survived two cyclones, and worked hard at raising our children. We have now moved to Perth, Australia, so our kids can go to school. Although the Pacific islands remain in our hearts, we have become urban dwellers. But we are urbanites with a passion for theological education and supporting Christian ministry in the least resourced parts of the planet.
Theological education is a highly strategic ministry because it multiplies – we teach those who will be leading the church for decades to come. This is magnified in hierarchal oral cultures where people pass on what they have memorised. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the church by developing a contextual curriculum for Talua Theological Training Institute and training staff in its use.
There are more active phone numbers than people in Vanuatu. Phones and tablets are prevalent and social media has become the marketplace for new political, social, and religious ideas. File-sharing is rife, and videos of preaching, crusades, and music, travel from device to device – most of which is currently African or Caribbean prosperity teaching or faith healing. This creates a tremendous opportunity to fill the electronic space with solid Bible teaching. We have created Trutok Media to meet this need.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”
2 Cor 5:14-15
