Parklands is committed to empowering a missions minded generation of young people who desire to serve in their local and global community
We wish to provide our students with experiences that shape their perceptions and inspire them to actively love and care for those less fortunate than themselves. Through education and service we equip our students to fight poverty and injustice, and encourage them to participate and raise awareness of these challenges both global and local.
Since 2011, Parklands has been providing students with cross cultural missions experiences. To date, our students have engaged in 8 outreach trips to Cambodia, serving with Bloom Asia and RAW Impact. Our desire to connect and serve comes from a Biblical heart for justice, love and kindness;
He has told you, O man, what is good—
and what does the LORD require of you,
but to do justice and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8 MEV)
Be it serving in Cambodia, or in our local communities, we desire to serve in love and promote justice. In a modern global community, our students are more aware than ever of the injustice and inequality that exists in our world. Our next generation of students are interested and increasingly committed to addressing serious issues that affect our way of life, and the life of those less fortunate.
At Parklands, we seek to assist our students to develop an understanding of the world in which they live, and a means by which to become history changers and participate in the fight against injustice and inequality.
We believe that Jesus was the world’s greatest example of a servant hearted leader to ever walk the Earth, and we want to live like Him. Jesus healed the sick, cared for the widow, comforted the poor and preached a message of hope. With this example in mind, we believe our students can impact the world and really make a difference. And it is our hope that by providing our students with experiences and opportunities to serve, that they will continue to find ways in which to serve that will endure for a lifetime.
