ATSIM

One of the blessings of our territory is to have such ethnic diversity. In order to better reach out to indigenous Australians we have our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ministry (ATSIM) Department, which is dedicated to sharing the Gospel of the soon coming of Jesus Christ to our Aboriginal and Islander people in Australia.

ATSIM runs Regional weekend programs, Camps and STORMCO’s (young people service ministry that stands for Service To Others Really Matters) throughout the Northern Australian Conference. These programs are designed to connect back with communities by building relationships, cross cultural awareness, healthily living & finding hope in Jesus.

ATSIM also identifies what young people have to offer and invests in youth leadership training and assists in providing strong Aboriginal & Islander leadership for the church, the community and the world.

Ministry for Ministers

Our pastors need a pastor too! Theirs is a unique role where they are constantly giving of themselves to help others in all kinds of circumstances, emotions and needs. So where does the pastor turn when he needs someone to talk to? That is the role of the Minister to the Ministers. He is there to support, encourage and guide the pastors in their busy occupations. Often he is just a listening ear and a sounding board, while at other times he is a resource person, advisor and advocate. Contact is made with the pastors through regular emails, calls, visits and meetings.

Trust Services

The Northern Australian Conference provides a Will service to its members through the Trust Services Department in South Queensland. The service has operated for over thirty years and is under the supervision of practicing lawyers.

For legal reasons, the service provided is limited to “those associated with the church”. This is understood as referring to church members and others who attend church services. Wills are prepared free of charge and without financial obligation to leave a bequest to the church. Information Forms are available by calling the Trust Services Department on (07) 4779 3988, during business hours.

Appointments can be made online or by calling the Conference Office. As Trust Services is not based in the Northern Australian Conference most appointments need to be made for during Big Camp. Some dates may be available outside of Big Camp in your area, so please check the booking site for availability.

Women’s Ministries

“Touch A Heart, Reach My World” is the goal for Women’s Ministry at all levels of our church for the next 5 years.

The Women’s Ministries Department seeks to encourage Adventist women to recognise their gifts and talents and to touch lives within the church and reach out to others who are seeking to find comfort in Jesus.

Youth

The Northern Australian Conference (NAC) Youth team seeks to develop loving communities, share the journey, and serve the community of North QLD and the Northern Territory. We are committed to inspire, train and empower young people to follow Jesus.

Our theme for 2016 is Back to Basics: Experiencing the Love of Christ (Ephesians 3:18). We believe that getting to know Jesus in a personal way – regardless of “how good you are” – is the only way one can begin to understand that God is love! This year we are challenging all NAC Youth to know Jesus in a real and personal way; to grasp and experience how wide, how long, how high, and how deep the love of Christ is!
