Preaching Christ in Australia
"My team intimately knows how challenging it is to be a Christian in Australia," shares Chris Makin, the Director of Leading The Way Australia. Today, two out of every five Australians consider themselves atheist or agnostic. This segment of the population has grown by over 9% in just six years. And among those who call themselves Christian, only 10% regularly attend church. Unsurprisingly, rates of anxiety, stress, and mental illness are also on the rise—with one in five Australians affected. For a society that was once founded on Christian principles, the extent of the spiritual devastation is alarming.
As the church in Australia faces compounding crises, Dr. Youssef is eager to proclaim the Gospel in the nation where God first established his family and ministry.
But God has not abandoned this Western nation; He is still at work to bring in the harvest through Leading The Way and its faithful partners like you. Makin clarifies, "We are so grateful for the Lord's provision. He has empowered us to leverage every form of technology available in order to share the Gospel with not only our nation but the entire Oceania region. Moreover, we are eager to see God move as Dr. Michael Youssef comes to evangelize the lost and encourage the church in person on November 26."
At this timely Leading The Way LIVE event, Dr. Youssef will have the privilege of preaching Christ at the International Convention Centre in the heart of Sydney. Situated at the intersection of Sydney's academic and cultural districts, this landmark venue offers an incredible opportunity to gather both believer and non-believer alike.
As the church in Australia faces compounding crises, Dr. Youssef is eager to proclaim the Gospel in the nation where God first established his family and ministry. With unique insight into Australian culture, he will share where true peace can be found!
As you are led, please be in prayer for this upcoming opportunity. It is our hope that Australians from across the nation would gather, that Christians would bring their non-Christian friends, and that many would be saved, encouraged, and convicted during this powerful evening of praise and Bible teaching. Pray for revival in the Australian church that will impact every area of Australian society for Christ. Above all, pray that Jesus would be glorified through this event—and that He would be found by all who earnestly seek Him.
