Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
EVERYMAN'S WELFARE SERVICE
In peace or in war, on Military Bases or in the field, Everyman’s Representatives seek to live up to their motto:
“Jesus Christ we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom; in order that we may bring each one to God, mature in Jesus Christ.” Colossians 1:28.
Everyman's has existed since 1940, and seeks to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Australian Defence Force, allies and veterans. Everyman's Representatives, are not members of the Defence Force, but are civilians who have an honourary rank in the ADF. Everyman's Representatives seek to evangelize the soldiers in the field, in recreational centres on bases across Australia, as well as overseas on operations.
Ben Ridley, supported by his wife Claudia, has served as a missionary to the soldiers and fellow veterans of the Australian Defence Force since 2015, after having served in the Australian Army from 2004 - 2014. In 2018, Ben founded a new project called 'Everyman's Veterans League' which is specifically targeted to reach the Veteran community for Christ.
