You are entering into a really important time in your life: the people you hang out with, the ideas you take on are forming who you are becoming. What does it look like to live a life on mission? Let's do this on purpose.
Bible: You are ready to dive in deep—to grapple with more complexity—to know Jesus more through the Scriptures.
Mission: You want to be challenged—to try some new things, even when it's scary—to be equipped for a life of mission.
Personal Growth: You don't want to let your culture define who you are and what you are on about—but to take personal growth and transformation seriously.
This faith-impacting one or two-year VET course is a unique opportunity for students in Year 11 or 12. Boost your VCE score while doing a subject you love!
Practical: learn new skills, be equipped for a life of mission
