That means more young people, like sixteen-year-old Katie, will have the opportunity to discover their true self-worth and belonging in the God who loves them and gave his only Son. We are so grateful to have such dedicated supporters like you!
Thank you for the incredible generosity you showed by supporting SU Schools Ministry into the future!
Special thanks to the small group of kind supporters who were cheerfully willing to contribute to our matching fund and double the value of donations from other supporters.
Thank you for helping us raise important funds to bring the Good News of Jesus to school students like Katie! You can hear Katie’s full story at: sunsw.org.au/donate.
What does it mean, to be a Christian?
SU Schools Ministry is an opportunity to guide the next generation as they wrestle with the challenges of High School and develop their own sense of identity and faith in this world.
In our fast-paced culture, I think it can be hard for young people to find the time to think through who they are and why they are here. So it’s a real privilege to work alongside the next generation at ISCF as they think through what it means to be a Christian in the world today, and such an encouragement to see the passion that many of the students have to know, follow and share the love of Jesus.
Northern Sydney ISCF
Doctors have discovered something wrong with my lungs, so I’m taking Term 3 off to find out more and so that my ISCF group can continue uninterrupted under a healthier teacher. I know I have a heavenly assurance. On the other hand, I have loved my job and wanted to be a little old lady teaching students about Jesus for 50 years! I guess I got halfway there and whatever the future holds, I know it is God’s work, not mine. I have felt privileged to share my Jesus with so many students over the years and can’t wait to see who stands with me before the throne on that last day, with our perfect resurrection bodies that will never get sick or sore.

North West Region SUPA Club
When Sam came to SUPA Club he brought friends with him every week. Now in High School, he’s wanted to be a student ISCF leader since day one, and recently invited almost everyone in his grade! It’s super encouraging to see students so impacted by Jesus they take the initiative to talk with their friends and invite them along. It encourages me to press on, because God is at work.

So being able to share the Gospel message of hope in Christ with the young people who attend the group has been the greatest privilege.
