    About me

    Hi there! Thank you for visiting my MTS apprentice page. My name is Jared Venter and I am continually amazed at God's great mercy and love, supremely revealed in Christ Jesus. I am super excited and thankful to be a member of WPC Bull Creek, where I attend with my wife Katja. We started attending WPC Bull Creek in February 2017, after deciding to find a church to attend together. I was raised in a Christian family and I am thankful to God for blessing me with a family who taught me the gospel of Jesus' death and resurrection from a young age. I became a Christian as a child and I am so thankful that God is so gracious. We all deserve judgement for our sin, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. It is truly amazing that God Himself, in the Person of Jesus, would take the penalty for sin upon Himself on the cross. I worked at my former church, leading the youth ministry from 2015-2016. I was involved in 1-1 Bible reading, leading Bible studies, running an introduction to Christianity course and Friday and Sunday youth. I am currently studying for my degree in theology from Spurgeon's College. Some of my interests include hanging out with people, music (playing and listening), reading, writing, ballroom dancing, basketball and enjoying the outdoors.

    About my Apprenticeship

    An MTS apprenticeship at WPC Bull Creek is such an amazing opportunity to grow in Christ Jesus and to learn more about proclaiming the Bible and the gospel message it contains. My MTS apprenticeship is two years (2018-2019) and my fundraising target is $60,000. I really want to do an MTS apprenticeship, because I strongly believe that the apprentice style training method for gospel workers is Biblical, as 2 Tim 2:1-2 (ESV) says:"You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." Jesus says in Luke 10:2 (ESV) "The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest." Our world needs to hear the truth about Jesus in order for people to be saved and so that people will grow in Christ Jesus. I look forward to Lord willing working in partnership with MTS, WPC Bull Creek and fellow Christians to proclaim the gospel of Jesus.

    Prayer Points

    Please pray: - For labourers to be sent out into the harvest; - That God will continue to grow all of us MTS apprentices in our love for Him and longing to see the Name of Jesus proclaimed; - That MTS apprentices and their supporters will build each other up in following Christ; - That God will enable me to trust Him and rely on Him in all circumstances; - That MTS will enable me to grow in my ability to teach the Bible and proclaim the truth of the gospel.
