Mission Vision Statement
The purpose of Missions at Wyong Christian Community School is to action Matthew 28:19: ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’ and 1 Corinthians 14:12: ‘So it is with you. Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church’.
Therefore, Mission offers students the opportunity to exercise their gifts through service to others and sharing the news of salvation through Jesus Christ.
Missions should be central to what we do as a Christian school as we encourage students to move away from being individualistic and to put their eyes on loving and serving Jesus and others (Mark 12:29).
Missions is about capturing the very heartbeat of Jesus and the Great Commission and making it real, relevant and integral to the life of the school and students on a day to day basis.
How can students be given opportunity to ‘go into all the school’? This can start in Junior School with students tying each others shoe laces, sharing with one another and other random acts of kindness which is then developed through the grades. Students are also involved in the planning and running of Chapel Services.
How can students be given opportunity to ‘go into all the local area..’? Moving beyond our own school we need to connect and partner with other schools in our region and do missions together and serve one another.
How can students be given opportunity to ‘go into all the Nation..’? This involves looking beyond our own region and ministering and serving the needs of our fellow peers in other areas. This may incorporate trips to other states such as the Northern Territory in Year 9.
How can students be given opportunity to ‘go into all the world..’? This gives students the opportunity to look and discover the bigger picture and plan of God’s salvation at work in the world. Students will be able to serve others and build the global church. As a school we have an annual mission trip to Samoa and a trip to Rwanda.
