In 2018, the Free Reformed Churches of Baldivis, Melville and Southern River cooperatively invited Rev Murphy to come on a speaking tour to kindle our responsibilities and passion for evangelism and outreach, as well as to examine our biblical calling and reformed perspective. Rev Paul Murphy is the pastor of the URCNA Messiah Reformed Fellowship Church in Manhattan New York and a renowned speaker on evangelism and outreach in Reformed circles in the USA and Canada.
While in Western Australia, Rev Murphy presented a series of presentations, discussions and workshops around the topic of “The Missionary God and His Missionary People”. You can find the recordings and other information related to the presentations below.
The Missionary God
Thursday, October 11 @ 7.30pm – FRC Baldivis
The intention of the evening’s presentation was to be inspirational, as Rev Paul Murphy delivered a message on John 3:16 focusing on three words in this text, ‘God’ (the character of God), ‘Loved’, and ‘World’. He then goes on to look at some other passages as a charge for God’s people and then more specifically ‘bringing it down to earth’ as a calling for God’s people.
The presentation was followed by an question and answer session with questions submitted from the audience.
Loving and Reaching The Lost
Friday, October 12 @ 7.30pm – FRC Southern River
The intention of the evening’s presentation is to be more informational (lecture style), going through some of the ‘how to’s’ of evangelism (i.e. how to go about it). Note that during the presentation, Rev Murphy makes frequent reference to this document.
The presentation was followed by a question and answer session with questions submitted from the audience.
Evangelism from Scripture
Sunday, October 14 @ 7.30pm – FRC Southern River
In this evening, Rev Paul Murphy delivered a message on 1 Peter 3:15 which calls us as Christians to always be prepared to give a verbal testimony.
