Rangeville’s heart for mission is a core of our ministry. We value the opportunity to support those who represent the hands and feet of Jesus throughout the world. We support people locally, nationally and internationally – a global family. The opportunity to serve in missions can be short term or long term. Some of our church family are currently serving in places like Papua New Guinea and Indonesia.
We are thrilled to be associated with groups such as YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Toowoomba, as well as nationally and overseas. University Impact and Student Life connect with students in our universities; and organisations like Far East Broadcasting Commission, Wycliffe and Open Doors are avenues for reaching many corners of the globe.
We also support School Chaplaincy and have a dedicated team involved in Religious Instruction in schools. Both of these activities play a vital part in sharing God’s love and grace in the schools within Toowoomba.
Rangeville has been Tim and Sharon’s home church since 1985 when Tim was beginning his career as a pilot in the Australian Army. In 1995 they left the Army and joined Wycliffe Bible Translators, heading to PNG the next year with their three young children. In PNG Tim served as a helicopter and aeroplane pilot while Sharon served in department office finance management.
By 2007 all their children had finished high school and were back in Australia. Tim became involved in senior leadership of the organisation, eventually spending 4 ½ years as the CEO. This year of 2014, they are on home assignment in Toowoomba where Tim is completing a Masters of Business Administration in Strategic Leadership.
They plan to go back to PNG in early 2015, Tim into one of the senior leadership roles and Sharon back into her previous role of department office finance management.
Tim and Sharon send out quarterly newsletters. If you would like to receive them, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or facebook ‘Tim Lithgow’.
