Power to Change is a not-for-profit, non-denominational, Christian organisation, originally founded in USA and established in Australia in 1967. We have over 140 full-time workers across Australia.
In Australia, we work with university students, high school students, churches, and families to connect people to Jesus and each other. We send regular mission teams to a number of other countries to demonstrate the love of Christ through aid and community development.
Our Headquarters is in Melbourne, with offices in Sydney and Brisbane.
We have one purpose – To help fulfil the Great Commission in Australia and beyond.
We have one process – connect, build and send multiplying disciples.
We have four major priorities – students, churches, leaders and digital.
Do we share our faith?
In Power to Change we do believe that verbally communicating Jesus' story, and how God has worked in our lives through him, is important. Such communication provides options for people.
We also believe that such communications should be appropriate (to the person, culture and situation) and show respect to appropriate authorities and individuals.
We are conscious that in some settings there is sensitivity to proselytization. Like many churches and Christian organisations we affirm with World Vision that, “In all ways appropriate for all our local contexts, we seek to witness to Christ — through our deeds of love and mercy, the character and conduct of our people, and through our words of testimony.” (from http://www.worldvision.org/our-impact/our-faith-in-action on Jan 11, 2016)
We believe that all people have a free will, deserve respect and have the right to choose belief systems. Respecting individuals includes cultures, faiths and beliefs. We do not proselytize. We do not exploit vulnerability to obtain a profession of faith.
