1. Serving your Muslim students effectively – Margaret Powell
This elective will explore the issues our Muslims students may bring to the English class, common misconceptions, and obstacles we might face. How can we serve them well, introducing them to Jesus despite their very different beliefs and world views?
Margaret has served with the Ministry to Muslim team with Evangelism and New Churches (ENC) in SW Sydney for nearly 16 years. Her vision is for hundreds of women and their families gathering in small groups throughout SW Sydney to examine the Scriptures exploring Jesus and growing in their faith in him. In a quiet moment she can be found at the beach.
2. Overflowing faith taster – Danielle McGregor
This elective draws from material in a three session Overflowing Faith workshop series we offer. We’ll consider how our faith overflows in our words and actions as we show a genuine interest in others and humbly and thoughtfully engage with views that differ from our own. We’ll briefly consider different worldviews and how the Gospel connects with them, and we’ll think about how to build confidence sharing parts of our own story.
3. Class excursions – Emily Tucker and Sue Radkovic
Want to get out of the classroom with your students? But how? What can we do? Where can we go? Come along and find out everything you need to run an excursion with your class.
