From The Regional Manager - August Update
Spring To Life
Our vision is for every child, young person, and family to have opportunities of transforming experiences of God’s love and Good News. This inspires missional imagination, empowers prayer and brings energy and creativity to ministry. In this edition we share glimpses of stepping towards this vision, stories of God at work in young lives in new communities and through innovative ministries as chaplains and volunteers teams serve in schools, on camps, and on missions.
The SU movement has been busy! The Coola interns travelled to the Northern Territory to support Katherine KidsGames. Construction is nearing completion on the Lake Camp Multi-Purpose Hall, finalising the Coola Building Project. Coola is heavily booked with school camps Terms 3 and 4.
Winter School Holidays included the launch of East Gippsland MAD (Make a Difference) Day Camp, and in-person Performing Arts Camp and Portland SUFM Youth Programs, reconnecting and impacting.
Last week we welcomed our 50th Chaplaincy program. We give thanks for the privilege of serving students, staff, and
families in each of these schools and acknowledge the creativity and resilience demonstrated by our chaplains in responding to transitions between at school and remote learning.
In June I was appointed as SU Regional Manager, Victoria. After 7 years serving with SU Victoria I am excited for the opportunity to lead the team and the ministry in Victoria. Thanks for being part of Scripture Union in Victoria. Please pray God continues to empower us together with creativity, courage, and energy as we serve with love, and engage with impact.
God bless you!
SU Regional Manager, Victoria
