Perth is a city unlike any in the world. Perth is a vibrant and modern city sitting between the cerulean Indian Ocean and the ancient Darling Ranges. Perth is the capital of Western Australia and the most isolated city in the world. It claims to be the sunniest capital in the world, with an average of 8 hours of sun a day 365 days a year. It sits on the Western coast of Australia on the Indian Ocean and has a population of 1.3 million (roughly twice as many as Nashville). Rottnest Island is right off the coast and is similar to islands in the Caribbean.
The most amazing part of Perth is its people. The Lipscomb team partners with Lifestreams Christian Church in South Perth. We spend the month developing relationships, performing works of service and ministry, and encouraging the people of Perth. This will include helping to facilitate a one-week Winter Youth Camp called WILD LIFE, organizing community outreach activities, spending time in various schools (elementary through high school), prison ministry at Bankshia Juvenile Detention Center through a program called Learning for Life, and much, much more. It will be a life-changing month full of Aussie-sausage sizzles, morning, afternoon, and evening tea, Australian rules football, incredible hospitality, and lifelong friendships.
Are you up for the challenge? We encourage you to contact us about this amazing opportunity and look forward to you joining the Lipscomb Perth team!
