The Barnabas Project – Applications Now Open

South New Zealand Conference

Are you passionate about sharing faith with others and desire to grow in your discipleship journey with Christ?

The Barnabas Project is an internship and educational programme for all members of our Conference. The project involves training from local pastors and international guest speakers over 6 months, as well as continued mentorship from your local church pastor. The curriculum focuses on equipping you further as a disciple who serves God’s kingdom and brings people closer to Jesus. There will be practical experiences available in the pastoral, outreach and evangelistic programmes of your church as well as participation in the upcoming We All Have Hope Evangelistic programme in October. A significant part of the project will be reflection and hands-on mentoring with your pastor and peers. Starting March 24. Application forms are now out.

Download your application form here or contact your local church pastor to receive one.




Disaster and Famine Relief Offering – 16 February

Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

This Sabbath, we are taking up a special offering to support the work that ADRA does when disasters strike. This offering will enable ADRA to be ALWAYS READY to respond and ALWAYS THERE when those affected by disasters need help the most. The story of Joseph teaches us how preparedness saved Egypt from the catastrophe of seven years of famine. Please dig deep and give generously, your generous gift will give hope and represent Christ to those who are in desperate need.

*NB –  Church leaders, please include this message in your bulletin.

Heading Off To Study? Your New Home Is Ready and Waiting.

Adventist Young Adult & Tertiary Student Ministry NZ | New Zealand Pacific Union Conference

Heading away from home to work or study can be a tough time.  But we have a growing number of churches all across NZ who are ready and waiting to be a home-away-from-home for tertiary students and young professionals.  The churches in this Network are committed to ensuring young people are supported, nurtured and equipped for this major chapter of their lives.

Young adults, parents, teachers, pastors, youth leaders, and friends are now able to make contact with a church in a centre where a young person is thinking of going.  So, we invite you to email the Young Adult Contacts at the centres in the Network and let them know the young people who are arriving this year.  No young person ever need leave home and be left alone and unsupported.

We want every young adult to know: wherever you go, we have a home for you.
