Who is SUSA?
Scripture Union South Australia is a Christian organisation with over 145 years’ experience working with children, youth and families in over 120 countries, and is well known for producing educational material and Bible resources for churches and individuals. In co-operation with volunteers from local churches, we train and resource volunteers to conduct classroom and seminar programs in primary and high schools, as well as voluntary student groups during lunchtimes or after school. SUSA also runs popular holiday and camping programs for families and young people.
It is a founding member of the Schools’ Ministry Group (SMG), established by the Heads of Churches in South Australia. This group co-ordinates the Christian Pastoral Support Program (Chaplaincy) in schools throughout South Australia.
Scripture Union in South Australia is affiliated with Scripture Union organisations in each Australian State and Territory, and in over 120 other countries. Scripture Union in SA is run by a small professional team working with volunteers from all major church denominations.
SUSA has many ministry opportunities for you to get your hands into!
Volunteering with SUSA isn’t just about having fun (which we do plenty of), but it’s primarily about introducing Jesus to a culture and world that does not know him.
From helping in the office or supporting events, providing breakfast for hungry students or taking part in a camp or school program, volunteers are at the heart of everything SUSA achieve. By providing generous gifts of time and talent, individuals and groups make an important and valuable contribution in everything we do.
Whether you’re interested in up-front roles working with children or young people, prefer to be behind the scenes in administrative field support, or have a passion to design and communicate with creative flair, then volunteering with SUSA can give you that valuable, hands-on experience which employers crave. It’s the kind of experience that can give you that competitive edge as you embark upon your career.
With an international presence in over 120 countries and countless victories of empowered lives for Christ, we’re not getting older – we’re simply getting better! Join the team that’s been running the race of faith for over 145 years, and changing lives in the process.
