Profile: Nigel Winder
Nigel joined the staff at Scripture Union in 2005. He has a long history of leading summer holiday programmes and camps in the deep south of NZ, participation in volunteer committees and training others in these mission contexts. Nigel works for Scripture Union because he is passionate about its mission of seeing children and young people transformed by Jesus.
Nigel oversees the running of the Southern Regional Office in Invercargill (which is the national administration centre for senior camps). He co-ordinates local events, speaks at local churches, fundraises, looks out for local volunteers and staff. As the Children and Families Worker he co-ordinates local training events, helps churches with resources and supports the set up, training and support of SUPAkidz Clubs as well as running a SUPAkidz camp.
With a young family of soon to be 4 preschoolers, Nigel knows the joys and frustrations of working with kids of all ages. As a qualified primary school teacher and with many years as a Youth Group leader, he enjoys working with all ages. He loves having fun and he loves God; making Him known by exploring the Bible with others. When he’s not being pummeled by his own kids you will find him either digging up sections of his back lawn to make more vegetable garden or out running or biking around the bush tracks around Invercargill.
