The New Dunesk Gap Year is an exciting opportunity for young people to grow in their faith while also building practical farm and ministry skills, allowing them to share in PIM’s vision to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in remote and sparsely populated areas of Australia.
Develop a whole range of useful farm skills, including fencing, driving and maintaining a range of vehicles, firearm handling, and managing livestock. You might even pick up a truck licence, first aid qualifications and take a course in chainsaw operation.
Grow as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ and deepen your theological understanding through structured study as part of the Timothy Partnership course.
Help out with different events at New Dunesk during the year, where you’ll develop your relational and leadership skills as you work alongside the New Dunesk manager to help events run smoothly.
Become actively involved in the life of the local Presbyterian Church, and develop skills in leading Bible studies, worship service leading, and community evangelism. You might even help with SRE in the local school, or learn to preach a basic sermon.
The Gap Year is a full time, live-on program that accepts participants in early February and Early July each year. You can participate in the program for either a full year or 6 months.
