Letter From ACB | ST3C Time Table |  NWYS Time Table |  About ACB |  ACB Website 


The ST3C is not merely a rite of passage for the adolescents of our church.

It is designed with the aims of:

  1. Drawing student into a closer relationship with God especially through fasting prayers.
  2. Enabling the students to understand the sound patterns of truth and the preciousness of salvation.
  3. Helping the students to build up character and integrity.
  4. Helping students to apply the word of God in a practical way.
  5. Training up young people as future workers of the church.
To achieve these aims, the running of the ST3C is intensive, with emphasis on fasting prayer, learning of God’s word and firm discipline in an environment of spiritual fellowship and support. Field or practical sessions may be included.

We do strongly recommend that you think about what your aims are before you sign up for the ST3C so that you come prepared in body and spirit, humbly accepting instruction, counselling and when necessary, discipline.

Please discuss these aims with your parents as the greatest effect of the ST3C comes about with parental cooperation.

The ETD acting upon the advice of the local church council or on the basis of its own investigation has the right to refuse your application on behalf of the ACB should an applicant be found in breach of the above conditions. Local church councils and parents are to note that disputes arising from a rejection of application will not be entered into.

All those registering whose age will be under 16 on the 24th December 2017 will be required to get their parents to fill up a “medical and consent” form. Unless this form is filled and submitted together with the online application, the ETD will not be able to register this category of applicants. This measure is necessary in view of the increasingly stringent levels of child protection.

Although a great amount of financial and human resources have been used on past ST3Cs, the institution of the ST3C has palpably and perceptibly contributed toward the stability of the churches in Australia through the training of young people.
