The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few… Government laws in Australia make it legal for churches to go into public schools to share the gospel with students during weekly 30-minute to hour-long lessons. Sadly, in this post-Christian society, there are too few volunteers to take up the task. In partnership with a local church in the suburbs of Sydney, you will spend a week teaching scripture lessons to primary and high school students who know little to nothing about the God of the Bible. Spend time encouraging students and building relationships through outreach programs in schools. After school, lead Bible studies, and also serve with our Sudanese and Filipino congregations. You’ll also spend a week serving at Life Kids Club (VBS Aussie-style), the church’s largest evangelism event of the year.
Students will partner with Life Anglican Church in Sydney, which has four campuses in the suburbs of Riverstone, Stanhope Gardens, Marsden Park, and Quaker’s Hill. Life Anglican sends missionaries and church volunteers to teach in 13 primary schools and 6 high schools. Students will be provided with curriculum, trained to teach the Aussie students, and divided into pairs to teach in the classrooms. Students will also lead by sharing testimonies, leading small group discussions, and games or activities.
Aussie Winter is June to August. The temperature will be cool but not cold with rain possible. Quality medical care is available.
