From the Director
“I love that as my daughter explores faith for herself, she has amazing Christian women around her, mentoring her and inputting into her, through her involvement with SU camps.”
“When my children go on an SU camp, there is a noticeable step up in their faith.”
“I learnt that Jesus wants to be my Captain and I want him to be.”
God has encountered people through us this year! Your time, talents, support, donations, prayer and involvement have resulted in these testimonies of changed lives. Young people are meeting Jesus and following Him and are growing in reading the Bible and in leadership through us. Thank you for being involved with SU.
We have been focused this year on building ministry partnerships with churches, to strengthen their witness, discipleship and leadership among young people. It has been a joy this past year to hear from Pastors who have seen this benefit their church.
As Australia changes, we also want to strengthen our focus on taking the gospel to young Western Australians where they are. To do this, we are seeking to rebuild arts and schools ministry. Camping and holiday missions are strong, but we want to find new ways of sharing the good news with children, young people and their families.
God resources His work and I praise Him for his faithfulness this year, that has seen the movement stabilise. We continue to face ongoing resourcing challenges and need to build income to enable this life changing ministry into the future. The need to change tax deductibility for donations poses new challenges for us, but I love that Christian people fund this mission and together change lives. We hope to develop new ministry and income sources too, to build sustainability.
The staff team has been stable and strong and I thank God for their servant hearts and passionate support of the movement and mission.
It is a challenging and exciting time to do Christian ministry. I look forward to God leading us with creativity. The SU movement has so many opportunities to impact the lives of young people. I pray that He enables the new things that He wants for SU and I believe that we are being called to “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness” and look to God to do His work. Thank you for being part of the team and for the privilege of leading you.
