School chaplain investigated for preaching to students

A BRISBANE school chaplain who declared it was his mission to disciple students and their families is under investigation over the statement.

The investigation comes as the Abbott Government this week faced a barrage of criticism over its decision to extend the controversial School Chaplaincy program at a cost of $245 million amid savage budget cuts. But the program also has the strong support of principals across the state.

Scripture Union QLD has confirmed it is investigating the activities of a Brisbane chaplain after being contacted about his blog.

"Discipleship … is ultimately a journey deeper into a relationship with Jesus, and to becoming more effective at seeing and establishing the Kingdom of God in our world," the chaplain blogged earlier this year.

"It is my mission to disciple others, including kids and their families in the schools I work in, as well as those around me in church life."
