Compass Foundation is a division of Christian Schools Australia, focussing on serving students across the broader Christian schools sector.
Compass hosts places of intensive formation where God’s vision for life is explored. The mantra of Compass is simple, but profoundly important in the work of formation:
Know the Gospel; Know Culture; Translate
More than teaching Christian worldview, Compass seeks to create environments that encourage a maturing embodiment of the gospel of the Kingdom. Environments where we might ‘be transformed by the renewing of our minds’. This renewing demands that we interrogate the stories which are at work in our prevailing culture and also in our hearts. These heart-stories come to us in the form of culture, relationships and experience, and while not always explicit, it is in these stories that we find identity, purpose, passion, reason, love and desire.
Compass believes the Bible is this kind of story. It is a story that engages the deepest questions of life:
- Who am I?
- Why am I here?
- What am I supposed to do?
- How am I to live?
