I think the idea of working and gaining a qualification will forever be appealing to me.
For those interested in ministering to others that are as passionate about horses as their faith, perhaps the likes of Attunga Youth Ministries Pty Ltd – a not for profit Christian outreach camp – would be of interest to you.
The aboriginal word for High Place, ‘Attunga’ is located in New South Wales, Australia above the Wingecarribee and Wollondilly rivers.
Attunga offer an Internship which at the end you will have achieved your Certificate IV in Christian Ministry while serving through the area of horse riding, worship/music, activities, kitchen/catering or site development/maintenance.
Running from February to December each year, you can apply for the internship up to two years in advance and must be within the 18-30 years bracket.
Want to see some native Australian animals?
Maybe the place where kangaroos, wombats, koalas and rosellas hang out might be worth a visit.
Being a camp, it is possible to visit Attunga without taking up an internship or employment.
As someone who plans on reaching out to people through the horse property she owns in the (hopefully not too distant) future, this place like many others, has a lot of appeal.
“What the horse does under compulsion…is done without understanding…and there is no beauty in it.” – Xenophon
