FOCUS Military Ministry works on training bases in the ADF leading voluntary, on-base bible discussions, small groups and social activities. By presenting Christ to trainees we assist in the development of trainees values and beliefs and the foundation of their character for service to the nation through their roles in the ADF.
We aim to give every person joing the ADF the opportunity to know Jesus Christ. This means that we want to be visible, accessible and encouraging to all trainees regardless of beliefs or persuasion. We work to ensure all our interactions with trainees proclaim Christ as he is presented in the Scriptures. We do this through several activities:
Our weekly gathering
We run main meetings usually weekly where we work through scripture and proclaim the gospel. These meetings are open to all people. We pray together, enjoy friendship and encourage each other.
Big lessons in small groups
In disussion groups we will open the bible and talk through the meaning and implications for each of us. This is where people can ask more questions and wrestle with what it means to follow Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
Targeted growth and care
Staff and volunteers will meet regularly with trainees to support them personally in their growth as a Military Christian. In these catch ups we will discuss and pray through specific challenges, hopes and goals.
