Partnership information

The PGP is an active network of Christian leaders, which is:

  • voluntary – Christian leaders opt in because they share the convictions and aspirations of the PGP and because they want to work together with other like-minded people

  • limited – partnership means a default position of seeking to support initiatives and projects of the PGP, but not any enforced obligation to do so

  • active – partnership means a commitment to desiring to see the other partners flourish, and incorporating that mindset in the way we shape our own ministry, and it means looking for ways to contribute to developing common strategies for gospel growth.

Partners are Christian leaders who want to be actively involved in the network, and who:

Partnership is usually for 2 years; existing Partners can renew their Partnership without needing to renominated.

Endorsed Ministries

The primary vision of the PGP is to advance the gospel in WA by equipping leaders, promoting evangelism and church planting, connecting like-minded churches.

One of the ways the PGP aims to do this is by partnering with other interdenominational ministries.

Each of these ministry organisations shares common characteristics with each other and the PGP:

  • Interdenominational;
  • A Perth based, Western Australia serving, ministry;
  • Holding similar convictions to those found in the PGP Theological Vision Statement in their approach to ministry and mission;
  • A commitment to the proclamation of Jesus Christ as Lord.

Perth Youth Gospel Partnership (PYGP)

The Perth Youth Gospel Partnership (PYGP) is the youth-specific part of the PGP that ministers to youth and those in youth ministry.

Visit the PYGP site

The PYGP aims to support Bible based, Christ centred, Gospel focused youth ministry in Perth and beyond through:

  • encouraging and equipping  youth leaders;
  • reaching out to and training youth.

The Huge Event

The Huge Event is culmination of the PYGP calendar. Bringing together hundreds of youth from youth groups and churches across denominations, Perth and Western Australia, The Huge Event is unashamedly all about Jesus.

During the event youth and leaders will spend time in prayer, sing praises to God, learn from God's word, meet other young Christians and be inspired to live a transformed life thanks to Jesus.

Fuel Conference

Fuel Conference is a training day held each year by the PYGP that aims to grow youth leaders in mature and godliness in Christ and equip them with skills and understanding to be wise and faithful leaders of the youth under them.


Trinity Theological College is an independent evangelical college whose mission is to prepare men and women for effective Christian service for the glory of God.

Trinity believes that a Gospel-shaped ministry will be marked by three interrelated qualities; Bible-based, Christ-centred and Ministry-focussed. It will be dedicated to developing the integration of head, heart and hands in Word ministry.

Graduates of Trinity serve in churches, schools, and other contexts throughout Western Australia and beyond as pastors, cross-cultural workers, and lay people.
