larry adams : power to change - International student ministry (ISM)

Larry is beginning his fifth year with the Power to Change ISM ministry at the University of Queensland (UQ). He is involved in many parts of the ministry including teaching, training, discipling and organising events at UQ. His passion is for missionaries and students alike to shine God’s love to not-yet Christians on our Brisbane university campuses, and by doing so, there will be spiritual multiplication on our campuses. Larry loves to help equip students to be future church leaders or missionaries and to see them lead other students to Christ while they are still in university.

Josh Foo : power to change

Josh is working part-time with Power to Change, reaching international students with the message of Jesus at QUT (two days a week). He is involved in discipling young Christians in their walk with Jesus, sharing the gospel on campus and coaching students to build 'ethnic communities' (called Houses of Peace) to reach their own people group. Josh is always looking for more people (young or old) to be involved in reaching unreached people with the gospel - he'd love to catch up with you over coffee to see how you can make a difference!

JONATHON KILCHESTER : POWER TO CHANGE

Jonathon also works with Power To Change (formerly Student Life, CCCA) in Victoria, ministering to around 64,000 uni students that attend the various Monash University campuses. 

Jonathon is the National Power To Change Frontline Coordinator, which means that two days a week he coordinates the training of new missionaries as they go through their first two years of training and development (called Frontline). Jonathon's general campus ministry involves discipleship, evangelism, leadership development, strategic thinking and prayer.

Jonathon's other role is the West Asia Partnership coordinator - which entails pastoral care and some administration tasks to care for our Australian Missionaries serving long term in West Asia, as well as coaching our Short Term International missionaries (STINT) and Global Missions team leaders each year. Praise God that this year we have completed one partnership location in West Asia and have moved to a new location! God is at work.
