In August, Mission of the Month giving is directed towards WCCEB – the Wollongong Combined Churches Education Board.
This interdenominational Board, with representatives from many local churches, has been operating for many years supporting the employment and placement of paid SRE (Special Religious Education, a.k.a. ‘Scripture’) teachers in local high schools. It is funded entirely by donations from local churches, businesses and individuals.
At the end of 2017, Ed Sowden and Deb Groth finished up as teachers with WCCEB, and we thank God for their service. In 2018, God has provided two wonderful new teachers in Jonny Hann and Georgia Clements. Over all, WCCEB provides ministry in 4 schools:
As well as teaching SRE classes to nearly 1500 students, they also help run Christian lunch-time groups – sometimes featuring “toasties and chats”.
Please pray that teachers will build good relationships with students and other school staff and that they will be bold when teaching the gospel of Jesus. Give thanks to God for Christian staff in these schools and pray for their wisdom in Christian witness. Also pray that enemies of appropriate Christian ministry in schools will not have their way, and that God would keep doors of opportunity open for Christian ministry in public schools as part of appropriate expression of freedom of religion in our multi-cultural society.
