PLC Sydney’s co-curricular Christian group, Fuel, and The Scots College Christian group, Cru, met in the scenic foreshores of Port Hacking over the weekend of 19 August. The group of 30 students were there to examine and consider what leadership looks like, in particular Christian leadership. Luke Murray from Presbyterian Youth spoke about Christian leadership: challenging the next generation of leaders to examine how the Christian gospel grounds character and how actions in leadership reflect character. The leadership conference was a huge success! Here are some reflections from students who attended the weekend.
Highlights from the conference?
‘The highlight of the conference for me was the balance of bible talks, practical workshops and ending each night with the camp fire. All the activities we did were encouraging and fun.’ Alison Lowe (Year 11).
‘A highlight for me was being able to have intimate discussions and many laughs with small groups but most importantly, having the time to delve into Gods word and have great fellowship while learning more about how to be a good Christian leader!’ Hingis Li (Year 10).
What is one thing you were challenged to think about?
‘We should aim to be godly leaders in all that we do and sometimes that means recognising when to be a godly follower of Jesus.’ Katarina Kiew (Year 10).
Would you go again in 2017?
'I would definitely go again next year. Experiencing how strong everybody's faith is was really encouraging!’ Steph Chew (Year 10).
‘I would go again to meet more people. The talks are truly inspirational and help you grow further in your faith.’ Maria Psarris (Year 11).
‘Definitely, it was a great opportunity to learn more about leadership as a Christian and to make stronger connections, with those who attended, through games and other group activities. I've come away feeling encouraged, refreshed and excited by my faith and the Christian friendships that have been strengthened as a result of the camp.’ The Scots College student (Year 12)
Fuel is a student-led group which aims to provide opportunities for students to explore and nurture faith in Jesus, ask real questions, and think hard about the issues facing young people. Fuel members aim to do these things through discussion groups using the Bible, or with visiting speakers or through music and bands, as well as networking with Christian groups from other schools. Fuel is a group that loves having fun and genuine friendships.
