On reflecting on this milestone Ross said, “Years ago I heard Keith Farmer, then Principal at ACOM, say that in order for a Youth Ministry to thrive the rest of the Church would need to be prepared to be uncomfortable for the sake of the Gospel.”
“Youth Ministry means mess, noise and breakages. From Margaret Street to HumeRidge this is a Church that isn’t afraid to be uncomfortable. And the prayer and support offered has been outstanding.”
“Many years ago I also read, ‘What if one day we discover prayer is the work and ministry the outcome.’ Without God’s work, blessing and intervention our efforts are in vain.”
Over the last 30 years, Ross’ ministry has impacted countless lives.
“I’m very grateful for the Savill’s love and input into our family as it has made a lasting impact,” said Patrick Casey. “Ross is the best ever I’ve seen at discipleship, leaving a legacy for many generations.”
In acknowledging his family, coworkers and volunteer teams, Ross said “this Ministry which has never ever been just mine has certainly not worked just because of me. I am grateful for all who have served, sacrificed and cared about youth alongside me, especially Jen and my kids.”
