Rev Dr Rick Dacey – Ministry and Mission

This week on Wesley Impact!  we celebrate Good Friday and the message of the Good News with the head of Wesley Mission’s Ministry and Mission, Rev Rick Dacey.

Rick shares his thoughts of the Easter story and the Good Friday message.

“It’s the fullness of our human experience, it doesn’t leave anything out and he didn’t watch from a distance, he got his hands dirty. He allowed himself to be subjected to death.  It’s that compelling love like it says in the old Isaac Watts hymn,  “Love so amazing so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.”  (The Wondrous Cross)

Rick Dacey

“It’s a solemn day but it’s also a celebration that the God of love entered this world, took on the complete fullness of our human experience, all our brokenness and our pain and He took that all upon Himself out of love for us and that’s what makes Good Friday so powerful.”

“Jesus said greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for His friends.  It amazes me that the God of the universe would call you and me, friend.”

Wesley Mission Story – Holy Week

At Wesley Mission much of our work is ‘behind the scenes’ and Christian ministry is no exception.

But it’s during Holy Week that we share the Good News of Jesus in all its fullness. 

From Palm Sunday (and the dramatic re-enactment at Circular Quay of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem) to Good Friday (and the “way of the cross procession down Pitt Street) to the celebration at the Sydney Opera House on Easter Day.

Dr Eddie Fox - World Director of World Methodist Evangelism

This week on Wesley Impact! we celebrate Easter and the message of the Good News with the World Director of World Methodist Evangelism, Dr Eddie Fox. 
Dr. H. Eddie Fox has served since 1989 as the World Director of World Methodist Evangelism and as the Executive Director (1992) of the World Methodist Evangelism Institute. He is responsible for leading sixteen Regional Secretaries of World Evangelism in developing indigenous evangelism on every continent.
The World Methodist Council is an association of churches belonging to the Methodist/Wesleyan tradition representing over 80 million constituents in more than 155 countries. Through the ministry of World Methodist Evangelism, the Council is challenging member congregations to faithfully spread the gospel so “that the world may know Jesus Christ.”

Dr Eddie Fox

“One of our strong passions is how do we multiply the witnesses of Christ.  Listening opens the door to speaking, it’s all about relationships. When we speak to another person we share our testimony. We believe everybody needs to know who Jesus is.”

Lellah’s Story - Easter

Easter is a time when we celebrate Jesus Christ who, by his death and resurrection, offered new hope, forgiveness and purpose. 

This week’s story is a reflection of what Easter means to one of our crisis accommodation clients, who has now stepped back into community life.

Ken Matthews - Anzac Day - Everyman’s Welfare Service

This week on Wesley Impact! we reflect on this Anzac day holiday weekend with a look at the work of Christian outreach to the Australian Defence Force. 
Chief Commissioner Ken Matthews shares about his role in leading Everyman’s Welfare Service

Called ‘Everyman’s’ for short it was formally known as Campaigners for Christ and operates on most Australian Defence Force bases, as well as serving abroad.

Commissioner Ken Matthews

“Many people come to me and say It’s a great mission field. The ADF can’t just let anyone in. We have an official status with the Defence Force which is really a blessing.”

Keith Garner (right) and Commissioner Ken Matthews

“It’s investing in eternity. The ADF is one of the few jobs where people literally put their life on the line, not only for their country but also for their mates and so the call for me is where is the church in this? What part do we play when they face conflict and what can we do to help them come to a place where they are eternally safe.” 

Wesley Mission Story – Ministry and Mission

As Ken has shared, one of the most important things in pastoral care is to have a listening ear and to offer Christ’s love through action.

Today we look at a day in the life of our Ministry and Mission team at Wesley Mission.
