Educating in a spirit of audacity and hope
Remar is a movement in Youth Ministry and Christian Vocation
Remar has a fourfold focus
1. Personal Development and Leadership Training
These experiences are gained through both physical and mental challenges. Amongst many in 2011 was the High Ropes Venture activity which challenged students to get out of their comfort zone and put their faith in their fellows.
2. Community Experience
Remar students gain a sense of belonging to a local as well as a worldwide initiative. Retreats have a national profile and are held at locations around Australia. Blue Remar students take part in a Solidatory Camp in a regional area of SA. In 2011, it was held at Port Augusta interacting with the Davenport Community and in 2012 it will again be held at Port Augusta.
3. Evangelization and Spiritual Development
Growth is sought in such a way that students explore and accept responsibility to their Christian calling.
4. Social Justice Education and Action
Foundation 21, the Variety Club Christmas Party, Backyard blitzes, and Fred’s Van and other causes were major beneficiaries of Remar throughout 2011. Rowers did a considerable amount of fundraising with Project Compassion, Christchurch earthquake and Queensland flood victims being major recipients of the student's efforts.
Remar enables young people to experience the richness of giving and to develop pro-active attitude towards social justice in a local and broader community context.
The Remar Team consists of Karen Bailey as Gold Helm Leader, Paul Morgan as the Blue Helm Leader and Derek Leibbrandt is the Red Helm Leader. Rosemary Moten supports these groups by acting as the Co-ordinator of administrative tasks.
