Redland City Mayoral Prayer Breakfast 2022
Redland City Council's 20th annual Mayoral Prayer Breakfast has raised a record amount of more than $30,000 for State School chaplaincy programs across the city. Almost 15,000 Redlands Coast students benefit from the programs every year by receiving mentoring, role modelling and pastoral care to improve their welfare and reach their aspirations in learning and in life.
This year’s event welcomed about 190 people, including school chaplains, church and school leaders, community members, local business owners, and government representatives. Attendees were graced with an incredibly thought-inspiring talk by guest speaker Chaplain Bill Hunter. Bill has coordinated sports chaplaincy and served as an integral member of the Australian Wellbeing team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.He was also the chaplain to the Brisbane Broncos team for more than 20 years, and currently leads the God’s Sports Arena in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
Bill was also joined on stage by Paralympian and elite track athlete Alberto Campbell-Staines, who has represented Australia and Jamaica over the years. Together, Bill and Alberto spoke about their most memorable moments and shared motivational stories including from their time at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
The Pastor Glen Gray Award, recognising an outstanding school chaplain, was this year awarded to Chaplain Tanya Tennant from Ormiston College. A key contributor to the development of the Student Wellbeing Framework and curriculum units, Tanya has ensured the College’s values are explored, understood, and incorporated in all facets of the school.
