Power to Change is an organisation that seeks to connect people to Jesus and each other. No matter what type of work our missionaries and volunteers do, we understand that our collective work is to further this mission.

Church Movements

We mobilise generations to live like Jesus to be helping people discover God with their friends (MyFriends), build disciple-making movements (Shiftm2M), and multiply missional communities (MC2). We're about forming and transforming communities.

 

Global Aid Network (GAiN)

As the humanitarian partner of Power to Change, we exist to reveal hope and restore life for people living in crisis and poverty through relief and development projects. Through international partnerships, we provide clean water to villages in West Africa and medical assistance to communities in the Asia Pacific region, opening opportunities to share God's love.

Families

We strengthen families and the relationships which are their foundation through 'A Day to Remember' and 'Love that Lasts' marriage seminars. Through Homebuilders marriage worships and the Marriage Mentoring Initiative, we equip couples around Australia to multiply their impact by engaging and encouraging others in their community using Biblical principles.

You will be helping coach and develop marriage movements where young couples start to learn about Jesus, grow in their faith and are sent out to help other relationships find a love that lasts. Reporting to National Strategy Director for Families, this full-time missionary role will be a key member of the Families team, which is based in Melbourne.

Main Responsibilities

An entrepreneurial bent is helpful as is a passion for outreach. You will need to work with people from different backgrounds and be willing to coach couples who have a passion for the family but aren’t confident in their skills to make a difference. Necessary training will be provided.

This is a full-time missionary position.

As Power to Change has no central funds for paying stipends, our missionaries raise a financial support team to allow them to serve in the movement. If this position becomes a full-time missionary one, then the applicant would be assigned a financial support coach who will help them through the support raising process. This normally takes between 6 and 12 months. Power to Change is very experienced with this method of funding mission work with over 150 people currently serving in Australia using this model.

International students make up 25% of most university student populations and are the top students of their home countries who will become leaders and influencers. They are eager to have new experiences which include learning about the Bible and Christianity. Australia opens its arms wide to receive tens of thousands of these future leaders every year. While at the same time, Australia’s strict visa laws means most students will return home after graduation. This receive-send-back situation is a strategic mission opportunity hiding in plain sight!
