Wellington Sports Chaplaincy training Phase 1,2

Wellington Sports Chaplaincy training is on 12-14 July. It will run Friday evening, Saturday 9am-4pm, as well as Sunday afternoon.

Phase One:

  • Overview of SCNZ
  • Biblical basis for sports ministry
  • Foundations of Sports Chaplaincy
  • Presence
  • Presence’s four expressions
  • Biculturalism and Te Tiriti o Waitangi

Phase Two:

  • The athlete
  • ‘Ole!’ – affirming athletes
  • Praying with and also for athletes
  • Adrenaline, stress, anxiety and depression
  • Critical incidents
  • Pastoral care in sport

This is the first half of SCNZ’s Four Phase training. Following this, we will run Phase 3 and 4 in October. Phase 3 centres on mentoring and includes a visit to a sports organisation. Phase 4 provides practical guidance on subjects such as family life, suicide awareness, and grief, loss and transitions. 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.
