Church Army is experienced in identifying those who God has gifted to the body of Christ with a heart for evangelism.


Budding evangelists need to receive encouragement and discipleship from experienced evangelists to flourish in their role.


With yearly conferences and ongoing discipleship evangelists will receive the tools & heart to serve & equip the church.


We're facilitating Networks around Australia for evangelists to spur one another on in their work of multiplying disciples.
