Daniel Stockstill teaching in Melbourne - July 2019
Mission Tour Australia
Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne
Since 2019, Klesis has been hosting Mission Tour Australia to bring experienced overseas Bible teachers to Australia. MTA’s goal is to continue helping improve the standard of biblical teaching among non-denominational Churches of Christ in Australia.
Launched in 2019, the first MTA saw Daniel Stockstill, a Bible professor from Harding University – a Christian college in Searcy, Arkansas, USA – visit Australia in June-July 2019. Daniel is associate dean of the College of Bible and Ministry at Harding and also serves as an elder of the Downtown Church of Christ in Searcy. Daniel was accompanied by his wife, Cindee.
Over a seven-week period Daniel taught in various churches in Brisbane (The Point Church and Holland Park Church of Christ), Sydney (Macquarie and Eastside churches), Perth (Malaga Church of Christ), and Melbourne (Belmore Road Church of Christ). In aggregate, over 200 individuals attended Daniel’s seminars and courses. Topics included “The Multigenerational Church” and “Christian Spiritual Formation”.
The previous MTA was set for 2020 but had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The next MTA is now scheduled for 2022. We’re expecting to host Evertt Huffard and his wife, Ileene. Evertt is a former missions professor and dean of Harding School of Theology in Memphis, Tennessee.
