Sports Chaplaincy Australia is Deeply Committed to the Local Aussie Church
We always seek to appoint sports chaplains through local churches as this provides good stewardship and appropriate accountability and support for the sports chaplain.
The other great advantage is that both the local church and sports club can build ongoing authentic and practical relationships if appropriate. Strengthening both the club and church community.
We’ve also discovered that our churches are filled with quality people capable of serving as sports chaplains. They don’t need to be clergy or ordained ministers however they do require a good track-record in serving in a pastoral care capacity and a trusted member of a church community. This ensures quality delivery and great outcomes for both the club and the chaplain.
Brokering a great fit for clubs and churches is our objective. SCA works with the local club to find the best person to serve their community and we also work with the local church to help identify and train their candidates.
