Supporting churches as they train, equip and grow ordinary Christians in ministry.
Rob Morton is the CCCNZ Training and Scholarships Coordinator. Rob works to encourage our churches as they seek to train, equip and grow ordinary Christians in ministry, within a local church context.
Rob also works closely with the Hillview, Lichfield Lands and Longview Trusts, overseeing the application process for the David Bay Evangelism Scholarship, the JH Baldwin Scholarship and the Matt Alexander Scholarship.
At the heart of each scholarship is the desire to see the right people, studying in the right institutions, and heading to the right places.
The right people: These are leaders who place a very high value on the Bible, the cross, conversion, and serving society. They’ll be able to teach the Bible, shepherd, serve, and disciple.
Studying in the right institutions: These training institutions will prepare our leaders for the multicultural secular New Zealand that is coming. They will establish our leaders in the Scriptures, they will place a significant emphasis on expository preaching to a multicultural secularising society, and they will help our leaders disciple leaders in the home, ministry and the marketplace.
And heading into the right places: We want to support the people we’ve invested into, to be placed in the right ministry context for them, for us as a network of churches and ultimately for the growth of the gospel in New Zealand.

Training, equipping, and growing your church
Rob would love to chat with you about developing a church culture where everybody is being trained and equipped for ministry. It's within this environment that new leaders can grow and are developed. Scholarships can help support these growing leaders as they deepen their understanding of the Scriptures and ministry, all within the context of the local church.
