Hi John Laing here.
I am the ministry coordinator for the Nelson Bays Branch. We are situated in the Nelson Cathedral Trafalgar Square.
I have been a full time evangelist for OAC ministries now for the last 16 years and I also work for the Christ Church Cathedral in Nelson city as their part time Children's Ministry worker.
As well as these commitments I am also involved at a local primary school as their Chaplin.
Up to 3 times weekly I do evangelistic outreach with flip-charts and object lessons on the streets of Nelson and the local markets and when the A&P shows are on in the Nelson and Marlborough areas I travel to them as well.
In the school holiday periods I am usually employed at various churches and Christian camps around the country as their Christian educator.
Christmas and early new year I run Holiday Park missions at different holiday spots around the country.
I also co-labour with other para-church organizations in evangelistic outreach at local A&P shows.
My primary passion is equipping the local church to be more effective in shearing the gospel in familiar settings with family, friends and strangers.
I also desire to equip children's ministry workers to be more effective in their roles as ministers of the gospel.
