Rob Lamont runs Ministryblue - Rob and Jenni Lamont  Katoomba - Full details on Robert Lamont below
  • YOUTH MINISTRY (1978 - 2013)
  • I started youth work full time back in 1978 as a youth worker for Church of England Homes, Carlingford with a heavy involvement in Fusion at Hornsby.

    TRAINING
    My training was at Moore Theological College in Sydney (NSW) Australia in Youth Ministry

    YOUTH MINISTRY
    I have worked for a number of Sydney based Anglican Churches as a Youth Minister and the Bible Society as the NSW Youth and Children's Director and Scripture Union as the NSW Schools Coordinator

    Currently I work part time at Pittwater Presbyterian Church as the Ministryt Coordinator. This is replanting a Church

    Sadly, I had to resign after 5 1/2 years of teaching at Kellyville and Rousehill High School when my SRE Board (KARHCEE) wanted me to promote a church where the Senior Minister rejected the Trinity. The Local Ministers Fraternal had removed him from the Fraternal but it meant nothing to my board.

    Further back I was involved in starting Maroubra Christian Surfers, Coogee Youth Centre, Focus Youth Centre and Trigg Hostel for Boys.

    I have also lectured at Wesley Institute in Youth Ministry, Church of Christ College at Carlingford and Wollongong, Moore Theological College, Capenwray Bible College, TAFE Colleges, Universities, Government Training programmes and even Long Bay Gaol.

    Over the years I has been involved in a wide range of other groups from board member of WARC (Wollongong Anglican Regional Council); board member of Adult Literacy NSW; President of Coogee Youth Centre; Promotions person for Southside Surfing Assn., Founding member of FAYM (Fellowship of Anglican Youth Ministers) and General manager of Hot- M a Performing arts company working with unemployed and a director at Teen Ranch.

  • CAMPING (1999 - 
  • When Jenni and I married back in 1980 we bought 6 acres at Bell in the Blue Mountains with the aim of building a camp centre. This never came off due to distance. The dream sat, till one Sunday in April 1999 while I was on a camp at Katoomba I saw that the old YHA at Katoomba was for sale. By Wednesday with no money we had agreed to buy it.
    This was followed by selling our home and using that money to buy Waratah Lodge at Katoomba.
    In 2000 Waratah Lodge opened. Sadly we closed it in 2013 as we could no longer sponsor this great ministry. 

    My first camp at Teen Ranch Cobbitty was in 1987 I have been committed to its ministry and vision. It is a great privilege to be a director of Teen Ranch Cobbitty from 1990 to 2010

    Over the years I have also consulted for numerous Camping Ministries

    MINISTRYBLUE (1984-)
    Ministryblue is just a vague name for what Christian Youth Resources, Australia started. (1984 start approx. to now). Ministryblue aims at making all major expenses for ministries free or cheaper. I never thought that it would ever get to $1 million yet from 2000 it has managed to turnover $100 million plus in resources. I have actually stopped chasing up groups on the network to work out how much it does now turnover.

    I love doing it even though it sounds more like monopoly money that reality.
    I also love to hear stories from people of ways we have helped them. Ministryblue exists because lots of people have been generous, it no longer relies on my marketing skill or ability to negotiate but on the heart felt generosity of thousands of different people who email free goods, to businesses giving amazing discounts. Ministryblue exists because God is in the business of changing people (even their wallets) not because of me.

    JENNI LAMONT
    2004 was a turning point for Jenni who from the day she started training as a nursing sister to 2004 had been committed to palliative care and aged care.

    The change came in the form of moving to community nursing and love it.
