Chaplaincy Expressions of Interest
SU’s heart is that being a school chaplaincy provider will open up and enable ministry opportunities with Western Australian young people. SU already desires to do its activities in partnership with local churches, supporting and strengthening their ministry and mission. This approach we will take to chaplaincy as a grass-roots partnership and opportunity for churches to connect with and grow their local communities.
Here lies the exciting opportunity. There is an opportunity for SU people to get trained and step into school chaplaincy roles. Also, we want to discuss your heart for your local community and how SU, through chaplaincy and our other camping, missions and school activities, can help you do it. We envisage this to be a partnership – with you and with local churches.
SU WA is a dynamic and passionate movement of staff and volunteers who make God’s Good News known to Western Australians and see real life-change through Jesus. An opportunity exists for a passionate person to join this creative missional environment to coordinate, grow and drive SU WA’s Holiday camps ministry. They will use their gifts to support, oversee and promote existing holiday camps and develop and implement new camps in order that more young people experience the love of Jesus.
