SCZA welcomes all people who love Jesus, love people and have the passion & competence to serve as community sports chaplains.
Chaplains need to be authentic, team players, inclusive, relational, and trustworthy. They are people who enjoy volunteering and building into the lives of others.
We are a professional body offering a professional service to professional organisations. It is essential that this is reflected in our training and in the process of accrediting chaplains to serve the sports community.
To become a fully accredited SCZA Chaplain you need to:
- Obtain a Certificate of Competence in Sports Chaplaincy.
- This can be obtained by attending our Introductory Two Day Training and submission of ‘Learning Capture’ assignments outlined at the training
- Be commissioned, or ‘sent out’, by your local Christian Community
- Provide an up to date police clearance (less than 6 months old)
- Sign and agree to abide by the SCZA Code of Conduct & Statement of Faith
- Complete an accreditation interview with members of the SCZA Board
- Maintain annual membership of SCZA
