Spiritual Formation & Creative Arts

Why Spiritual Formation?

Is your heart’s desire to lead God’s people into a deeper authentic relationship with Him?

Has God gifted you with the passion and skills to use drama, creative writing, art or music for His purposes?

The Spiritual Formation, Worship and Creative Arts Stream will provide you not only a sound biblical theology to underpin your personal devotional and prayer life, but equip you with particular skills and insights for ministry in prayer, spiritual formation, musical worship, and the appropriate use of the creative arts in the Christian life.

It is with great excitement that we welcome Dr Matt Jacoby, high profile front man of Sons of Korah, to the MST team in 2014! Matt is teaching Christian Worship, Introduction to Philosophy and Preaching, as part of the new Spiritual Formation, Worship and Creative Arts ministry stream.

Outside MST, Matt is a pastor at Barrabool Hills Baptist Church, Geelong, where he has been doing most of the preaching and teaching for the best part of a decade. He tours nationally and internationally with Sons of Korah and has written widely on the spirituality of the Psalms,
including ‘Deeper Places: Experiencing God in the Psalms’, published recently. He also writes daily devotionals for the quarterly booklet ‘Thrive’.

Katie's Testimony

“I always had a passion for worship ministry and, at age 21, I moved to Melbourne to pursue an internship with my church. For more than eight years I have been part of the worship team and it has been such a rewarding and educational experience. I hope to one day be involved with a worship ministry where the prophetic voice of God is heard and declared in the songs written within the team.”
