In 2013, Light Bearers launched ARISE Australia in partnership with the North New South Wales Conference (NNSW) and the Kingscliff Seventh-day Adventist Church. The first program was a glowing success and 24 enthusiastic students graduated on May 10th. This superb start opened the door for a deepening of the partnership between Light Bearers, the NNSW Conference, and the Kingscliff Church.

While David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

To strategically facilitate this partnership David has accepted the call to be the senior pastor of the Kingscliff Church. He will occupy this position while continuing in his current role with Light Bearers as a speaker, writer, and instructor for our ARISE programs. David will continue to teach the same classes he has taught for Light Bearers at our ARISE programs in the US, speak at our annual convocation, and continue with our new Table Talk television series, among other projects. In other words, while David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

We are very excited about the ministry possibilities this new situation will open. It’s an expansion of the dream God has given us in training, teaching, and empowering disciples of Jesus Christ. We solicit your prayers as we continue to go forward spreading the Good News about Jesus!

In Christ,

Ty, James and David
