The Patrol Institute
To towns too small for a Church...
When Col Jones attended his first Institute classes he wondered about it all. After a few weeks, he said: "Wow, it's changing my life".
Six months later, he returned with his Uniting Church workers and urged them to tackle our practical studies. Three years later, he claims the help from his teachers has opened new doors for the ministry, and he courageously advances in his special contact with ethnic and local teens in the Belmore area of Sydney. Col Joins a team on Patrol outback during his annual holidays, as stewardship of time in service to people. Col is one of six hundred in the last fifteen years, some Outback Patrol graduates have moved on to missionary work in other countries, some have entered theological colleges to prepare for full-time ministry and others have returned to become teachers themselves.
The great benefit of the Outback Patrol Institute is in retraining local Christians in their Church and youth work. Outreach became more effective.
Evening sessions continue every Tuesday of the academic year. The faculty is made up of some of Australia's leading evangelical workers. "Tuition is offered free, as the Institute is wholly supported by the Lord's people."
Glad Bowman said she thanks the Lord for Outback Patrol, and those who reached her for Christ. She came from Tibooburra.

Remember: 'Don't back out on the outback!'
