SURRENDER exists to raise up the next generation of Christian young people to live the radical call of Jesus amongst the margins.
SURRENDER’s primary purpose is to motivate young people to move from interest to action by becoming personally involved in expressions of Christ’s mission amongst the poor.
Additionally, SURRENDER affirms, encourages and inspires those already committed and involved in incarnational mission amongst the poor.
At the core of SURRENDER is the relationship with and involvement of the Indigenous Australian people of this land.

SURRENDER TRUTH LABS
SURRENDER Truth Labs are one-off nights where young adults can research and discover what it means to follow Jesus in a hurting world. Truth Labs are about discovering an alternative to living for yourself, about making a real and lasting difference in a world desperate for good news!
‘JOURNEY TOWARDS SURRENDER’ ORIENTATION
Journey Toward SURRENDER is a short-term orientation course for young adults to explore with the message of SURRENDER: to live the radical call of Jesus amongst the margins. This is an invitation to young adults to commit a season of their lives to seeking God’s heart for the poor, to create space to discern their vocation and to explore God’s Kingdom work in their own context.
