Platinum Partners



Open Doors serve the persecuted church.

Overseas - We work through local partners and build long-term relationships in over 60 countries around the world. We partner with people who know and understand what is needed to see the church strengthened and the gospel proclaimed. Our mission is to help local churches transform their nation for Jesus.

In Australia - We partner with Australian local churches. We believe that caring for the persecuted church should be part of the DNA of every Christian. Your support enables believers living in some of the darkest places on Earth to be a light for Christ. Our mission is to make sure that the persecuted church is remembered in every Australian church, every Bible study and every home.

We are part of the Body of Christ, devoted to Jesus Christ and His Commission, and motivated for the glory of God.



MTS multiplies gospel workers through ministry apprenticeships. As churches and parachurch ministries invest in raising up the next generation of gospel workers, MTS seeks to assist in identifying and training gifted individuals for ministry. 

The MTS apprenticeship is a two-year, hands-on, full-time ministry training experience. Apprentices are discipled by an experienced gospel worker, who invests deeply in growing their godly character, theological convictions and competencies in word ministry. With options of both a standard pathway and a number of pathways specific to certain ministries, apprentices are enabled to undertake the training pathway that best serves their future ministry. All of this is just the first step in a lifetime of ministry. MTS trainers also set out to help discern what each apprentice’s next step in ministry ought to be. 

The hope of MTS is to see Christians trained for Christ’s service through ministry apprenticeships, continually growing in love, knowledge and service of God, and training others for ministry.


At the very heart of SMBC is the desire to see men and women prepared to take the light of Christ out into a dark world. Mission is in our DNA – reflected in our School of Cross-Cultural Mission and School of Preaching and Pastoral Ministry.

We are a Bible-centred, interdenominational college with a commitment to learning and being shaped within the context of community. Our experienced teaching staff come from diverse backgrounds of ministry and missionary experience. It’s not only their academic expertise which will stretch and deepen your biblical thinking, but also their life experience ‘on the field’ that provides application to what they teach.

We offer a flexible approach to learning, including our gap year program, The Bridge. With full-time and part-time, day or evening, intensive mode or semester length options, there’s every opportunity to be ready for whatever God has in store for you!
