Introducing Chris Battistuzzi
Chris has the full support of the SUSA Council as the Executive Director for Scripture Union in South Australia. The Executive Director is an essential part of leading SUSA’s Mission to reaching young people in South Australia with the Good News of Jesus.
With over *270,000 children in our schools, it would be safe to assume that most have not heard about God’s love for them. It’s vital that we reach as many young people as possible with the Good News of Jesus. If you believe that everyone needs to hear about Jesus, then you will appreciate just how vital Chris’ ministry is.
SUSA is different from other organisations in that we receive no government funding for any of our programs. All ministry, including staff wages, are funded by the generosity of our supporters.
Chris has been passionate about helping young people discover Jesus for themselves ever since he was a teenager. He has ministered in schools for over 25 years as a youth and children’s pastor, a school Chaplain and a denominational State Children’s Coordinator.
He has held several other roles in his career, each directly involved with ministry to children.
“My greatest desire is to help churches connect with local schools, local kids and local families, bringing the message of life, love & hope of Jesus”
Chris is an ordained pastor with Churches of Christ and Baptist Churches. He is a gifted speaker and leader, and continues his passion for children’s ministry as the Primary Projects coordinator.
When he gets the chance Chris likes to visit country markets, 2nd hand shops, and he enjoys long walks along the beach.
He is married to Maria, and have two teenage children.
Chris brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the ministry. The passion and commitment he brings to the role is unparalleled.
It is our hope that you will support Chris in this role.
God’s hand is firmly upon this ministry, and we are excited to be part of a mission that is sharing God’s message of life, love and hope with children, young people and families.
With this in mind, we invite you to be a part of this life changing and dynamic ministry by supporting Chris. Please join us.
Yes! I Would like to support Chris in his role.
