MTS Recruit is a conference aiming to raise up the next generation of Gospel Workers in Australia and across the globe.

We do this by seeking to inspire delegates to take their next step in serving Jesus with their whole lives and to consider undertaking a ministry apprenticeship for training.

We are wholly driven by God’s Word, committed to praying for more workers for God’s harvest field (Matthew 9:35-38) and equipping them to become disciple-makers (2 Timothy 2:2).

Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38

MTS seeks to multiply gospel workers through ministry apprenticeships. We aim to help local churches and ministries identify and train gifted individuals before helping them to decide on the next step in their ministry. We want every Christian to:

  • Be trained to be the best servants of Christ they can be through ministry apprenticeship
  • Continually grow in the knowledge and service of God
  • Train other ministry apprentices.

To read more about what MTS believes please read our Convictions Statement or check out our website at www.mts.com.au

MTS Recruit is for anyone who follows Jesus and is considering serving him with their whole lives.

Whether you are about to start full-time ministry or if you have never really considered it, we will meet you where you are at and help you think through your next steps.

There are three main categories of people who attend MTS Recruit:

  • Delegates: Individuals who are at different stages of thinking when it comes to serving Jesus in full-time ministry.
  • Apprentices: People who are currently undertaking a ministry apprenticeship either through MTS or a similar organisation.
  • Trainers: Pastors, Ministry Leaders and Bible College Students who are able to Mentor several Delegates each throughout the conference to help them consider their next step in serving Jesus. 

MTS Recruit Partners are Christian businesses, organisations and ministries who are committed to seeing Gospel Workers raised up in Australia and across the world. They are doing this in unique ways throughout their various spheres of influence, but are also actively involved in promoting the growth of MTS Recruit through specific and various ways. 

Each Partner affirms the MTS vision and is aware of the MTS Convictions Statement.

Registrations close on 25 September 2022.

We’ve done this for a few reasons.

Firstly, it is pretty complicated to work out a relative price for different currencies and economies ($20AUD is very different to K32,000).

Yet, the key reason is because we want our Australian attendees to help facilitate this conference to become a global one. We believe that no one should be prevented from being equipped to serve Jesus, so we are asking Aussies to consider seeing their ticket purchase as an investment.

Your purchase allows a brother or sister in Christ from another part of the globe, to become better prepared for a lifetime of ministry.

If price is an issue for you, please contact us at events@mts.com.au

MTS Recruit is both a conference and a conference resource.

Our prayer is that we’d see over 100 MTS Recruit conference sites running around Australia and the world over the first weekend in October.

Each conference site will have it’s own style; some sites will simply stream the entire online conference and delegates will join in online peer groups. Other sites will only use a few elements of the MTS Recruit conference recourses.

But every conference site will be registered here, and you can register to attend a conference site through the mtsrecruit.online page.

If you’d like details about hosting a conference site please get in contact with us.


A delegate is a person who is open to considering full-time ministry. Upon registering for MTS Recruit, delegates are asked to select 1 of 4 strands that best describes their current stage of thinking around full-time ministry: 

  1. I haven’t really considered full-time ministry
  2. I have considered full-time ministry but have no definite plans
  3. I will pursue full-time ministry, but likely not in the next year
  4. I am planning to do a Ministry Apprenticeship in 2022

At MTS Recruit, Delegates will receive one-on-one Mentoring with an experienced Ministry Worker. This is a time designed to help guide Delegates through whatever questions they have about ministry and their potential next steps.

Mentors are people who are either serving in, or training for, full-time ministry and are committed to meeting one on one with a delegate to help guide them in their thinking about ministry.

Mentors will meet with 2-4 delegates across the Conference for about an hour each, either onsite at a Local Conference Gathering or online. 

Each Mentor must attend online training and agree to the MTS Convictions Statement prior to leading.

Peer Groups are a time for a small group of delegates to be led though biblical material to help them in their decision making. 

Peer Groups are organised around 4 stages of ministry thinking:

  1. People who haven’t really considered full-time ministry
  2. People who have considered full-time ministry but have no definite plans
  3. People who will pursue full-time ministry, but likely not in the next year
  4. People planning to do a Ministry Apprenticeship in 2022
