Many have been serving for over 10, 20, even 25 years. Most chaplains serve with very little acknowledgement, willingly, sacrificially and with a great sense of joy. Additional to these outstanding qualities two of the highest appreciated virtues in the SCA network are our members commitment to growing the SCA vision (to see a chaplain in every club) and being an intentional and authentic representative of Jesus Christ to our sports community in Australia. Both of these are highly esteemed in SCA.
