Profile: Rebekah Smith
Young people discovering their passions & strengths, and using these to share God's love is the key for Rebekah.
Rebekah, originally from Wellington, was part of a team of students running their Christian group at her high school. Since arriving in Nelson, she has worked as a youth pastor for 4 years, gained a diploma in Management through NZIM and is now on the staff at Scripture Union in Nelson.
Rebekah is passionate about Student Led secondary school Christian groups, identifying leaders and giving young people opportunities to lead by equipping, resourcing & supporting them in their own faith journeys and in how to share God's love amongst their peers.
Rebekah works in Nelson along with the wonderful Youth Pastors/Workers who are supporting each group of student leaders. She covers the Nelson, Tasman & Marlborough area, working in intermediate & secondary schools as well as working in cooperation with local churches, 24/7 workers and Incedo. Rebekah also loves networking with churches and Christian organisations in the area to connect them with each other and with the wonderful services, resources and training Scripture Union has to offer.
Working with Scripture Union is a dream job for Rebekah; getting to use her strengths in making things happen, communicating, networking people & being strategic with what she achieves. And most importantly all for her first love; the Lord Jesus Christ. Why not partner with Rebekah in this wonderful work…
