Baptist Mission Australia has been serving among the people of Papua for over 60 years. There is a deep desire in the church to see local, practical theologians who hold fast to God’s Word and take their context seriously.
Country Consultant, Mark Holt has a deep passion and love for the people of Papua and desires to see their faith communities continue to grow and thrive.

Mark communicates closely with local faith leaders and supports them as they respond to the diverse needs of the local people.
“The Fellowship of the Baptist Churches of Papua is a dynamic and passionate union of over 300 churches. With the leadership of Titus Yikwa and Stevanus Wenda, these churches train workers for God’s Kingdom in theological colleges and training programs. My role is to walk beside this leadership and also initiate intensive mission workshops both on the coasts and the mountainous interior of this God-blessed place of Papua.”  — Mark, Country Consultant
