Manawatū Sports Chaplaincy training Phase 3,4 will run over 2 days, from 9am until 4pm. Each day will include one phase of training, consisting of six hours of interactive class time, plus breaks for lunch, and also morning and afternoon tea.

Phase Three:

  • Mentoring
  • Active listening
  • Reason for the hope – sharing the gospel with gentleness and also respect
  • SCNZ’s code of conduct
  • Sports organisations (includes a field trip)

Phase Four:

  • Health and safety
  • Family life
  • Grief, loss, as well as other transitions
  • Suicide awareness
  • Pathway to placement
  • Developing your game plan

This is the second half of SCNZ’s Four Phase training, and it is preferable to have completed Phases 1 and 2 before attending this training. Phase 1 explores the Biblical basis and critical elements of Sports Chaplaincy, while Phase 2 places particular emphasis on pastoral care. Four Phase training is especially relevant for those who wish to serve formally as a Sports Chaplain.

Following each session time is provided for you to reflect on your learning and its application for you.

After completing all four phases, you may then apply to become an accredited Sports Chaplain.
