Mueller loves blessing the wider community.
Ever since Mueller began in 1990, the College has sought to widen its blessing further afield. A fortnight ago, a team of 30 plus Middle School students and staff headed out to Goondiwindi. Why did they give up their weekend to travel five hours away? Simply to encourage the students and staff of a small Christian school, through worship workshops, leading Chapel, taking classes etc.
This sort of thing happens all the time on so many different levels.
The Sports department set up the Brisbane Outer Schools League (BOSL) to organise after school sport. This now involves over 2,000 students from over 20 different schools, coming together in community to have fun playing team sports.
Our amazing Primary students have generously donated money in Friday Chapel to fund the fit out of two classrooms of a new school in Nepal. Even better, a team of senior students will visit this school later this year.
The whole idea we are modelling to our students is the idea of giving back to our community. This is the essential antidote to becoming entitled, and to developing life-long habits of being other-person centred.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Ultimately, we want to be a witness to the difference the good news of Jesus makes, here in Moreton, out to Goondiwindi, and to the furthest corners of the earth in Nepal.
We want our students to be so blessed in their Mueller experience, so they can be a blessing to others.
