purpose driven mission


Beyond The Walls is purpose driven mission both in Aotearoa New Zealand and across our world that we support both financially and in prayer. We support a collective of missions and missionaries as they work to bring the hope, joy, peace and love of Jesus to their communities. Ranging from sports chaplaincy to child sponsorship, supporting organisations that are creating employment opportunities and freedom from sex trafficking, to supporting children through their parents separation or divorce, the various ministries that make up our Beyond The Walls collective all work to bring positive change to their communities, and we're proud to sponsor them!

global sports chaplaincy

Global Sports Chaplaincy provides pastoral care and support to sports communities across our world by identifying, training, appointing and guiding Sports Chaplains who are available as volunteers to serve these teams at all levels. Sports Chaplains  provide free, accessible pastoral care, support and mentoring to athletes, staff officials and their whānau on site and at the point of need irrespective of religion, lifestyle and beliefs. The effect of Sports Chaplains placed in sports communities has improved mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing leading to better people, better lives, better outcomes and better communities. Sports Chaplains are not sports psychologists, replacements for player welfare officers or trained counsellors, Sports Chaplains act as first responders to assist people in need to professional services. Some of the services Sports Chaplains provide are: Grief, loss and bereavement support; Critical incident response and recovery; Life-skills mentoring; Mental wellbeing support; Suicide awareness and intervention; Home and hospital visitations; Transitions in life and career guidance and support.

The voluntary Board is made up of about 15 members with some Christian academics and various religious backgrounds. The treasurer works for Carey Baptist College. Our income is provided by the support of a few churches. From the budget for this year it is used for such things as national meetings, support for newly established Northtec chaplain, hospitality allowance for chaplains, regional training and conference expenses. We meet at least 4 times a year and some business is carried out by email, and during COVID by Zoom. George Seber is one of the chaplains, who is a retired Professor of Statistics, a Counsellor and Supervisor, and he is a representative of the Baptists. When at Auckland University he was on various chaplaincy boards and also Laidlaw’s Academic Advisory Board for about 20 years.

JOYYA CHILD SPONSORSHIP

west bengal, india

Joyya is committed to catalysing the transformation of communities in West Bengal, India, where people are oppressed and disadvantaged by extreme poverty and exploitation. We believe that access to education plays a vital role in long-term and sustainable changeOur Child Sponsorship Programme was established by Freeset and, for many years, has supported some of the most vulnerable children of the organisation’s employees. In 2021, as Freeset ends, these children will continue to be supported through Joyya’s educational initiatives. Increasingly, Joyya will be expanding the programme to include any child who is living in one of the four communities in which we are based (Dhuliyan, Khal Par, Ram Bagan and Sonagachi). We seek to increase the capacity of each child by connecting them to the educational intervention that best meets their needs and develops their potential. Examples of educational intervention include:  Helping children access the best local government schools; Assisting families to buy books and uniforms; Supporting a child to access hostel-based education when the home environment is unsafe. We are committed to these children for the duration of their schooling. We are currently committed to approximately 40 children, but our vision is to build a programme that enables every child in our four communities to benefit from a good education. We are also developing pathways to specialist education facilities for children demonstrating exceptional potential or exceptional need. Upon completion of schooling, we are working to establish a scholarship scheme to see young women and men pursuing further education at reputed colleges and universities. Through our Child Sponsorship programme, we believe that the cycle of poverty and exploitation will be disrupted, and our communities will begin to find release from generational oppression.

Chakhesang Baptist Church Council
BARNABAS MINISTRY, Zanietso vero        BUTWAL, NEPAL

"We are so thankful to Windsor Park Baptist Church for financial and prayer support. We always feel encouraged by the Church as we take the next step to reach the unreached with the word in Nepal. We are deeply moved by the word of God written in Isaiah 61:1,which says, “ The spirit of the Lord is upon me; because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek…. to proclaim liberty to the captives”.  



Barnabas Ministries work with the local Churches in western Nepal to bring change and hope to local communities. Initially stationed in Pokhara and Kathmandu, they've recently shifted their ministry to Butwal. Once relocated, the District Jail reached out for help to repair the toilet inside the common area (where 200 inmates hang out), which Barnabas donated the funds to do. Because of this they were able to share the message of Jesus Christ with inmates several times, contributing some Nepali Bibles and hymn books to the inmates. Some inmates who accepted the gospel have since organized weekly worship services inside the jail. Barnabas Ministries were also contacted by the Badi community, to help the children of women who have been led to a life of prostitution. They've taught them the gospel and are planning to plant churches in their villages to help bring change and transformation to the community. They are also working to set up two halls as training centres in Butwal to train and equip local leaders to meet the challenges of the community, including correcting the misinformation and treatment of women who are menstruating. During 2020 they were unable to do ministry due to pandemic, however, they they were able to send out two sons to the Badi Village for a program coordinated and communicated by brother Bhim Thapa, the executive manager of Barnabas ministry for western Nepal. They ask that we please uphold them in prayer.

24/7  youth work

Under the umbrella of the Windsor Park LifeCare Trust, and partnering with WPBC and local schools, 24/7 Youth Work is all about prioritising relationships, not programmes, as a way of supporting, encouraging and journeying alongside youth in local schools as they navigate the most forming and transformational years of their lives. We currently have two young adult youth workers placed at Murrays Bay Intermedicate School - Adam and Manaia (pictured above), who have been doing an incredible job journeying alongside intermediates; and as of Term 2 in 2021, we will have 2 youth workers - McKenzie and Luke, placed in Rangitoto College, New Zealand's largest high school, to walk alongside and support high schoolers as they make big life decisions and establish their identity. We're so passionate about the work that our youth workers are doing in these schools, and we encourage you to join with us in prayer over these ministries!

baptist theological college

nagaland

The Baptist Theological College (BTC) started as a Bible school by early local Christians on February 15, 1944. Today, it’s a College that offers two courses: a Bachelor of Divinity (BD) degree and a Certificate in Church Music (CCM). BD runs for 4/5 years (depending on the secular degree) and CCM is offered for one year. This year (2020-2021), there are 228 students consisting of 112 women and 116 men. There are 12 faculty and 9 staff members. It’s an international and ecumenical community, represented by 25 people groups from different denominations and countries. It’s a College that believes and promotes the Gospel values of human dignity, mutual respect, and equal opportunity for all members. Apart from curricular education, BTC has various capacity building programs to prepare students for multi-dimensional leadership for both local and global contexts. BTC is privileged to receive financial support towards students’ education from WPBC. We pray that the mission work done “Beyond the Walls” (of WPBC) will yield great reward for the church and great harvest for the ministry of the Gospel. 

LANGHAM

CliPaul Windsor is the International Programme Director for Langham Preaching, which is one of the three programmes in a ministry known as Langham Partnership. We exist as a response to the observation that the church around the world, particularly in what is called the Majority World, is growing in numbers very quickly — but it is growth without depth. Under God's hand, ours is a depth ministry, deepening maturity among God's people. The key agent for this task is the word of God and so we are about multiplying the ministries of the Word of God and, while preaching is not the only such ministry, it can be demonstrated that it is a catalyst for these other ministries and so becomes a crucial part of what we do.

In Langham Preaching we are trying to nurture grassroots, heart-language movements of biblical preaching that are locally owned and operated. Until Covid struck there were more than 90 such movements worldwide. They are nurtured by gathering people into annual, weeklong seminars and then scattering them back home into smaller preaching clubs, where they can practice what they've learned, and then equipping some to be local trainers who in concert with the clubs spread and grow the movement locally. Before Covid there were about 1200 clubs and 600 local trainers worldwide. It is important to understand that studies show that something like 80% of preachers in the Majority World will never get near a theological college, like a Laidlaw, or a Carey. They are the people for whom we exist.
