Mike Raiter, renowned preacher and former principal of the Melbourne School of Theology, will be preaching at Mittagong Anglican's 5pm service.

 

Michael Raiter is a gifted, internationally recognised speaker of the Christian faith. Born in Liverpool, England and raised in New South Wales, Australia, Mike began his career as a high school teacher in Sydney and Pakistan. He studied at Moore Theological College in Sydney, becoming the head of the Department of Missions in 1997. On concluding his study at Moore, he returned to Pakistan to teach at the Zarephath Bible Institute. Subsequently, he worked with Church Missionary Society Australia and Interserve in Pakistan. From 2006–2011, Mike served as the principal of the Melbourne School of Theology, an evangelical theological college.


Mike is currently the Director of the Centre for Biblical Preaching, an organisation that seeks to train and equip churches around the globe in expository preaching. Mike is also the author of a number of books, including Stirrings of the Soul: Evangelicals and the New Spirituality which won the 2004 Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Australian Christian Book of the Year Award.


He will be speaking on Colossians 3:18-41.


We're encouraging everyone from Mittagong Anglican to come along and hear him preach - perhaps even coming twice on Sunday.
