JFC Chaplaincy is all about SUPPORT, ENCOURAGMENT, and CONNECTION! We want to see residents reach the fullness of who they are … as a person, as a student, and as a unique individual with an exciting purpose. Representing the Uniting and Lutheran Churches, our College has a part-time Chaplain who supports and promotes a caring and spiritually rich environment.
The main role of the Chaplain is to provide support and encouragement to students and staff. This goal is achieved by providing activities and events that give opportunity for the Chaplain to connect socially with the residents and therefore build rapport and trust. The Chaplain is also available for referrals and counseling, or if a resident just needs someone to chat to.
Our College Chaplain provide an essential link with local youth groups and churches, and acting as a visible sign of the Churches care and support for our staff and residents.
