College Missions

College Missions Program

“…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Jesus sent his disciples out to take the Gospel to their immediate vicinity, their neighbouring lands and to the very edges of the Roman Empire.  At Green Pont Christian College we are seeking to make disciples for Christ and therefore encourage our students to be outward looking as an expression of their love for God and their love for their neighbour.

Our ‘Jerusalem’ – the College itself and Green Point Baptist Church

Our ‘Judea and Samaria’ – the Central Coast and Regional Australia

Our ‘Ends of the Earth’ – reaching the spiritually and physically needy overseas

Our Missions and Service program seeks to encourage all students to become involved in serving and ministering to others.  We also seek to recognise students who are involved in serving others outside of school time.

Junior School Missions and Service opportunities are focused on raising awareness of need in Australia and overseas and involves regular fundraising and SAO child sponsorship.  Students are involved in supporting activities in the local church and visiting local retirement villages and nursing homes.

Secondary School Ministry and Service on the Central Coast.  We encourage our Secondary School students to seek to serve the local church through making and serving morning tea for church activities.  The College choir and band visit local nursing homes and interact with the elderly and run chapel services.  Years 11 and 12 students have the opportunity to serve at Coast Shelter as volunteers at the Saturday night restaurant helping to serve the disadvantaged in our local community.  Our Year 9 students are also involved in the yearly Backyard Blitz which provides a garden make-over for needy members of the local community.

Mission and service to regional Australia.  Year 9 boys and girls have the unique opportunity to partner with AIM (Australian Inland Mission) in yearly missions to remote communities.

Outreach to the world.  The College has a long-standing partnership with Samaritan’s Purse through support of Operation Christmas Child.  The College is also involved in sending mission teams to visit Samaritan’s Purse projects in South-East Asia.  We sent a mission team to Vietnam in 2012 and Cambodia in 2013 and the College community raised funds for a nutrition and education projects in each of these countries.  The 40 Hour Famine has a large number of participants each year from both the Junior School and Secondary School, raising funds for World Vision.  We also have a long standing relationship with our sister school Hofangahau College in Tonga and run a teachers conference thereOur Senior girls (Years 11 and 12) are also able to take part in a mission trip to Indonesia as part of a Compassion team.
