Southern Cross members are entitled to a number of benefits:
Apostolic Reviews and Consultations: We are developing a process of Apostolic Reviews that enables our members to receive apostolic and prophetic input, to strengthen ministries and leadership teams. The four-fold process involves: input and evaluation, monitoring, self-governance and partnership.
Official Endorsement and Ordination: The Australian Federal Government has granted Southern Cross recognition as an official religious organisation. This enables the Association to nominate qualified persons for marriage celebrant status. We recognise God’s call to ministry through conducting ordination services for our members.
Regional Support Groups: Throughout Australia, and in the nations of South Africa, Kenya and Mauritius, we have established support groups where members meet regularly and minister to each other. We conduct regular mission trips to visit and encourage these support groups around the world.
Leadership Events and Conferences“]Southern Cross hosts international conferences featuring cutting-edge speakers who equip the saints through revelatory teaching and spiritual impartation. We host Leadership Advance events in various cities that bring together members in a retreat-type setting.
Cutting Edge Resources: Southern Cross is committed to providing our members with advice and support with the most up to date, effective and Spirit-led resources. These include many Churchlands and Bethel resources: Australian School of Ministry, Sozo, Shabar, Healing, Ministry Activation and Worship.
