Who Are We?
4thSeedMinistries is an Adelaide/Internet based ministry that exists to encourage, challenge and equip Christ-centred communities to be families with one another; So that through the Church’s unity the world would believe the truth about Jesus. This was Jesus’ prayer and so it is ours also.
I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
- Jesus (John 17)
The Idea behind 4thSeedMinistries comes from a story in Mark 4, the parable of good soil producing fruit that produces fruit.
We see this happening in two ways.
We aim to help followers of Christ see themselves as the Church, kingdom hearted and missional. That we would see God’s Kingdom as a family of families practising the way of Jesus.
We seek to create spaces for followers of Christ to use, what the Spirit has uniquely equip them with, for kingdom purposes. Using these gifts and skills, passions and creativity for his purposes.
How this looks will differ in each context. Whether in a different suburb, city, state or country, God's family will reflect him according to where He has placed them. Using his gifts to reflect him well.
4thSeedMinistries does not operate in the "checklists or 8 steps plan" paradigm or the "copy/paste" mentality. We simply say, this is what is working in our context, here it is for free, take it and better it for God's Kingdom.
