Finished School? Want to make a difference in this world?
If you want just another gap year, then this is not for you.
Don’t waste your gap year, make it count! Whether you have plans to come to uni, tafe or get an apprenticeship, why not dedicate one year to God and STAND IN THE GAP for your community, our nation and the world.
This is no ordinary gap year. The STAND IN THE GAP YEAR is your opportunity to use your talents for God AND learn new skills at the same time. Ezekiel writes,
Be a part of a of movement that will change the world. God is looking for someone, will you be that someone?
As part of the STAND IN THE GAP YEAR you will help build broken walls. Our world is full of broken walls; family breakdown, child abuse, slavery, sexual exploitation, poverty, spiritual blindness. What walls can you help rebuild?
You will need to STAND! There is a gap between God and the world. Who will STAND before God on behalf of the land?
The STAND IN THE GAP YEAR is built around the Certificate IV in Ministry, with three exciting options:
Enrol in the Certificate IV in Ministry through your local church or as a distance student and STAND IN THE GAP for your community.
Enrol in the Certificate IV in Ministry at Alphacrucis College, Sydney, and STAND IN THE GAP for our nation. You will get to visit other local and regional churches, serve at significant conferences and events (Big Exo Day, Planetshakers) and meet new friends to STAND with.
You can also enrol for the NSW Youth Alive internship and STAND IN THE GAP for the young people of NSW by being a part of a team that is transforming a youth culture.
Enrol the Certificate IV in Ministry at Alphacrucis College, Sydney, missions stream and head off on a missions trip overseas and help build broken walls around the world.
You will need to have a passport and the missions trip will cost extra.
STAND IN THE GAP YEAR extreme is for students who wish to mix their choices, combining options 1, 2 or 3.
Imagine if God finds someone, what could He do? Will you be that someone?
