THE VISION for these chaplains is seeing Indigenous people

  • Overcome the impacts of marginalization, evidenced in poor health and education, unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and other destructive behaviour
  • Empowered to live fulfilling and productive lives in Australian society.

These will be Chaplains to Youth, to Women and Hospital and Funeral Chaplains

Because of the emotional drain this ministry involves, it is important that the Chaplain

  • Be connected to the Aboriginal Evangelical Church in Melbourne
  • Connect to a mainstream church for added support and encouragement
  • Connect to a personal support group and prayer chain
  • Establish a mentor, which could include a local leader, elder or colleague
