Paul Dadd

Auckland Children and Families Consultant


Training adults in how to explore God with children in ways that are fun and meaningful, whether that be in church on a Sunday, at a camp, holiday programme or a school club, is an exciting part of my ministry with SUNZ Children and Families.

My main role is to help train, resource and support the many volunteers who run SUPAkidz clubs and SURGE groups in schools in Auckland. Over the past few years I have developed the SURGE programme to be used by churches in intermediate schools.   It is designed to help young people explore life and values through a Christian perspective.  To find out more you can visit our school clubs page. 

I am involved in running SUNZ children’s ministry training conferences, WAY2GO, and our more local, tailored training days called WAY2GO Focused, and also am passionate about working with churches to support them in growing and nurturing the faith of children alongside adults and the wider church community. 

My work with Scripture Union started as an intern and has enabled me to bring together a lifelong love of working with children with a love of Jesus Christ. My continued motivation is that every child and their family may know the joy of having Jesus as their friend today and for the rest of their lives.

I also work part time as the Children and Families Pastor at St Margaret’s Church in Hillsborough, Auckland.

Please email me if you would like to receive my regular email Prayer Letter to keep up-to-date with my ministry.
