The Farmers Christian Seminar reaches out to farmers both saved and unsaved to let them know that God cares about farmers! This has been a 10 year vision from since 2003.... At the end of 2013 I felt The Lord say now is the time to launch this Ministry Outreach. We held our first Seminar in Mandurah in March 2014 with limited success. Then in June of 2015 we held the 2nd Seminar in Esperance. This was an exciting outreach event where 51 farmers came out to Greg Shipley's farm 50kms North of Esperance. We had a great time of fellowship with a mix of 80/20 Christians and unsaved men.
The opening event was clay pigeon shooting for 2 hours....4 teams were made up of the guys and we had a good competition. Greg supplied all the ammunition and clay targets as well as morning and afternoon tea. After the shoot we came back to the shed, had coffee then ministry of the word. Then we had lunch (2 butts of beef on a huge spit). Then we had the second session of the word. In the afternoon we had the opportunity for some more clay pigeon shooting. It was a tremendous time together with about five churches from Esperance represented. One of the comments made by one of the Pastors was that this type of event can help to bring unity to the churches in Esperance. . Looking forward to the next event. .Ps Kevin Eyre Mandurah.
