Generate Field Development Manager

In 2014, BCA entered into a partnership with Generate Ministries with the aim of seeing a paid SRE (Scripture) teacher for every state high school in rural NSW by the end of the decade.

Generate Ministries helps NSW Scripture Teachers, Chaplains and Scripture Boards strengthen their ministry in NSW schools. It is a joint ministry of Scripture Union NSW, Youthworks, Presbyterian Youth NSW and the Baptist Churches of NSW and the ACT.

From 2014-2020 BCA supported Generate's Bush Scripture Adviser position. In 2021 this support moved to a Field Development Manager position.

Rachael's October Points
Please pray for all NSW SRE teachers who are patiently waiting to hear if they will be permitted back into schools this year (schools need to be operational at level 2 for this to occur). Please pray that school principals would allow information about high school SRE (via a recorded video or letters from HS SRE teachers) to be shared with students and parents before the end of the year. Please pray over the dwindling numbers of HS SRE students in many areas across NSW - that God would be at work to fill those classes with students keen to learn more about Him.
