Nungalinya eNews - Christmas 2015

Christmas greetings to all!

Dear <<First Name>> 

As we approach Christmas again it is good for us to reflect on the gracious gift of God in Jesus Christ, The Prince of Peace.

Despite the turmoil that the world has faced in recent weeks, we can be certain that God's purposes for humanity have not been derailed.

The Board, Principal and Staff of Nungalinya College wish you and yours every blessing this Christmas and in the coming year.
Our final graduates for 2015!

Our last two graduation ceremonies for 2015 were held in November. We were honoured to have Mr Peter Styles MLA present (pictured in back row) to present the awards. We know that he had a very busy day but still made time to be with our students. He gave stirring speech in which he congratulated the students for their hard work and encouraged them to persevere with their education.

Another record was set this year with more than 80 students graduating across the four courses.

You can view an album of the Cert I Graduation HERE and the Cert II Media Graduation HERE
Our second cohort of Certificate II in Media & Discipleship graduated on November 13. As always, it was a joy to see the videos they made of their respective stories. The videos will be soon be available on YouTube.

From the Bible

Isaiah 7:14

New International Version (NIV) 

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

Finance Update 
Our End of Year financial position on current indications will leave the College with a deficit of approximately $100,000. This was not unexpected as there have been significant cutbacks in government funding but thankfully not as bad as we had feared.

Can you help us eliminate this deficit and get off to a great start in 2016?

Please consider viewing 'JUSTINE'S STORY' (above). It is a powerful story. Have some tissues handy!
CMS Summer Schools

The Church Missionary Society (CMS) runs Summer Conferences in each state every January. In 2016 the conferences will feature updates on the Northern Territory by Bishop Greg Anderson, Anglican Bishop of the NT.

Dr Jude Long will also speak at the Victorian conference supporting Bishop Greg and will be the keynote speaker at the Tasmanian conference.

Various Nungalinya staff will also be present at the CMS Summer Conferences in their home state.

This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand about what God is doing in North Australia and to meet the Principal and staff.

You can view a video of Greg Anderson HERE and then visit the CMS website for registration details.
