Around the world: In ACT, Australia
In the ACT we remind ourselves Scripture Union has a mission, not a model! So we encourage people to consider how they can use the passions and abilities that God has given them to serve Him in our context. It has been exciting to see new ministries start as people take up this call.
Sports ministry is one such ministry - the result of a young man uniting his passion for sport and Jesus. It has been particularly successful at connecting with boys at an age when they often begin to drift away from their faith, partly due to sport being held on Sunday mornings.
SUPA (Scripture Union Primary Age) Rugby, an afterschool program and SUPA Sports Camp have helped young boys grow in their faith. The students who attended these programs have been encouraged to integrate their faith and love for sport, and live for Jesus in their secular sporting teams.
