  • Teen Expedition 2017

    Announced by North NZ Coordinator on Feb 21 2017

    Kia Kaha (Stand strong)
    23 - 30 April 2017

    We are heading to the beautiful Lake Waikaremoana. Waikaremoana means "sea of ribbling waters" but we want our young people not to be blown around, but rather to stand strong in Christ. This is our theme which Pr Lance will focus on as we journey through this magical part of the country.

    Numbers are limited so be sure to speak to your young people. Already 1/3 of our spaces are taken. Get your application in now to be sure of your place. Download forms at http://www.nnzc.org.nz/document_groups/5714

  • Teen Expedition

    Announced by North NZ Coordinator on Feb 17 2017

    This year Expedition is earlier in the year. We have swapped dates with teen camp so that there are still great events for our teens during both school holidays. It means we get better weather which is great too! However, it isn't far away.

    Please talk to your young people so they are aware and ready to jump at this great oppertunity when application forms come out on Monday.

    The trip? We are heading to beautiful Lake Waikaremoana to hike and kayak. Everyone will be walking for part, and kayaking for part. We will take in the most beautiful hike in the North Island, stay in tents and fabulous huts, possibly see (definately hear) Kiwi, build great friendships and memories, and see God in a new way.

    Dates are 23-30 April (maybe 22).

    Cost is $140 for teens and adults. (Sorry adults, Great walk huts are expensive for you and free for kids)

    Deadlines: To ensure you will have a space on the trip we need your application form by the 28th Feb. We will still accept applications till the 31st March, but we cannot garantee you a place. It will be subject to the DoC booking system, so if you are keen, get in fast.

    Payment is required by the 17th March, or when your application is confirmed if after that.

  • Pathfinder Leadership Award & Master Guide training

    Announced by North NZ Coordinator on Feb 16 2017

    Pathfinder Leadership Award and Master Guide training is coming up in just under a month! We apologise for the late notice, but due to the conference moving we have had a little more to do in secure an Auckland venue to hold it. It will be at the Conference Office which is now located with East Auckland SDA church at 47 Ben Lomond Cr, Pakuranga Heights.

    Please note the following change.

    • Master Guide - Sabbath 11 March from 2pm - 6pm.
    • PLA - Sunday 12 March from 9am - 3pm.
    • If you wish, you can attend BOTH MG and PLA seminars.

    We are looking at doing things a little bit differently this time, so that your time is better spent. Resource books and workbooks will be posted out to you once you have registered for you to work through leading up to the training. This allows you to gain an idea of the course content before arriving, and start to digest it.

    At the training we will highlight the key points to refresh and clarify, then open up for your questions. This allows us to be answering your questions, looking at how to make it relevant in your unique contexts and the like. This way you will learn more, retain more, and best of all, understand more.

    To give you time to work through your workbooks, we will be take no new registrations after the 27th Feb. Workbook will be posted out on the 28th giving you time to work through them. PLEASE BE SURE TO COMPLETE YOUR WORKBOOKS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU TO THE TRAINING.

    Click here to download your registration form. Please fill it out then email it back to Valmarie Young (ValmarieYoung@adventist.org.nz) by Monday the 27th of February. All items with a RED outline are required fields for you to fill. Thank you.
