SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH IN ANY CONTEXT

About Present People

Present People training is based on Sport Chaplaincy Australia’s unique approach to ministry, which we’ve practiced and refined in sporting communities over almost 40 years.

We all want to see followers of Jesus making an impact in the world. We want to see our love, our prayers, our words, and our lives bring new hope to our community. And we want to see every person in our church put into practice Jesus’ instruction to make disciples.

A Proven Model

We partner closely with churches to deliver the program, follow up each trainee, and provide additional support. We also help churches measure the benefits of Present People by assessing how effectively trainees are applying what they learned, in alignment with your vision and mission.

Present People is unique because it is a tried and tested model. We’ve designed it to be easily accessible, by providing effective tools to make a kingdom difference right now, in the places that are already part of each person’s everyday life.

WE BELIEVE EVERY CHRISTIAN’S CALLING IS TO “MAKE DISCIPLES”, AND THIS IS BEST LIVED OUT THROUGH BEING PRESENT IN THE PLACES AND SPACES THEY ARE ALREADY IN.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • The basic principle of being present and available to others in their context.
  • The 4 expressions of presence that deepen our interactions and our conversations.
  • 5 practical skills to utilise anywhere, anytime, to make a life-changing contribution.
  • The invitation to immediately begin to practice being Present People.
  • Identification by each person of a specific context where the training will be applied.
  • Regular short questionnaires to participants to identify effectiveness and areas for support.

TIME

12 hours | The training can be structured in a variety of ways. The application in a person’s context will be for a lifetime.

COST

The Present People training is delivered by specialised trainers. We charge a base rate to organise and deliver the training regardless of numbers, and then a per person charge that covers training manuals, follow up, and administration costs. A current cost schedule will be provided to you on request.
