The Micah Challenge is an independent non-profit organisation which is a global ministry which was established in Australia in 2004. It is a coalition of Christian Aid and Development with numerous mission groups such as TEAR, World Vision, Compassion to name but three, along with denominational local churches, Christian groups and individuals.
Graduating in Communications at University in Canberra, Tabitha Horsely's determination to serve the Lord in her area of interest, saw her win the position as the Communications Co-ordinator with Micah Challenge. The head office is in the World Vision office in Sydney, where she works three days a week.
Born in Kenya to an Australian missionary family, Tabitha Horsely developed a passion for justice issues from a young age. This role fits hand in glove with her personal and Christian interests because she feels that God's justice is an important part of Christian commitment and it is to this end that her concentration of energy has developed.
Her responsibilities include developing strategy for media; as well as the production of written materials, videos, the web site and promotion of the Micah Challenge into local churches and Christian groups. Currently Tabitha is seeing Micah Challenge's branch into the world of 'social networking'.
A major part of Micah Challenge are the State Action Groups which are very active in promoting this ministry and which involves local promotion and talking to politicians of all persuasions.
As to her future, Tabitha Horsely said that she has a passion for the non-for-profit sector using 'communications' as a vehicle. Her personal interest is homelessness, both in Australia and globally. Her passion for justice is close to the heart of God.
