“We Dream of a New Time of Faith, Justice and Peace”


ASCM is a national Christian organisation working to build a community of open, active, critical and ecumenical faith, primarily among university students.  The ASCM seeks a new National Director to play a vital role in taking the movement forward by fulfilling the duties listed below. If you have a heart for working with students of all ages, enjoy building respect and cooperation amongst people of a variety of Christian faith traditions, and are passionate about a Christ-centred approach to life and faith, we hope you will apply.


ASCM was founded in 1896 as the Australian affiliate of the World Student Christian Federation. Although we are now small compared to earlier times, our work to bring the gospel values of faith, justice and peace to the higher education community remains as vital as ever.  We are an inclusive organisation, welcoming members with many different backgrounds and points of view, with an emphasis on respectful dialogue. We are keen to flow with new vigour and impact. Our National Executive Committee and local members regularly hold discussions on topics related to social justice, theology and what it means to be Christian amidst the challenges of our 21st century world.
