Vision Colleges 40th Anniversary Celebration
Our Celebration on the 30th of August was a great success with 94 people in attendance for the dinner to celebrate the life and ministry of Ken and Alison Chant. It was a special honour that Dr Stan DeKoven the International President of Vision was here and presented Ken with the first 5 books from the Ken Chant library, it is the intention of Vision International University to have all of Ken’s books hard bound into “Collector’s Edition Books”. Vision Australia has joined with this effort in sharing some of the costs. Ken and Alison were presented with a plaque by the Australian board. We were also honoured to have Pastor Kevork for Lebanon and Tim and Karen Hammon from Florida Kay and Chris Ryan, the Vision Representatives in New Zealand joined us, others came from as far away as, Broken Hill, Melbourne, Wagga Wagga, Parkes, Tasmania and around NSW.

Ken and Alison honoured several who have had a significant impact on the ministry with a crystal plaque: Mary Shadbolt typed all of Ken’s notes into a word processor giving us our books, Bishop Harry and Doreen Westcott ran Vision while Ken was in the USA, Ps. Rob Thornton who supported Ken on his return and gave him access to a printer so they could print the college material. Also honoured International President Dr Stan DeKoven; Visions World Zone Leaders Dr. Gail Stathis and Dr. Brian Van De Venter, Dr. Steve Mills, and Dr. John Delgado. There are so many others who have worked so effectively around the world to see our commission come to pass: The Whole Word To The Whole World. Many we have sent a certificate of appreciation to them and we apologise to those we could not.

Our Australian team was also honoured by Dr’s. Ken and Alison Chant and Dr. Stan DeKoven as plaques were presented to Ps Denis, Steve and Trish.

The task of getting the Whole World To The Whole World is a huge team effort and we must all play our part for it cannot and does not rest with one man alone, but if that one man, to whom the vision is given is not faithful then there will be no team, no work and no fruit.

Welcome to this edition of The Visionary. May the Lord richly bless you in all you do, with all you meet and everywhere you go.

Great News for the college and students. We are delighted to advise you that we have gained our accreditation from ASQA for the next 5 years, and we thank God for that blessing. This means that we can continue to offer our Accredited Programs, and we can continue to offer Government-funded traineeships in NSW, W.A. and now into Victoria, where we have also started to offer our accredited program into the school system.

We are now in the process of seeking VET Fee help for our students who are doing the Diploma and above. We have a long way to go, but we are slowly getting there. This is a long processs, but please pray for good success, for it will mean that students will be able to get better funding for their studies.

Our work to gain accreditation in South Africa is proceeding, more slowly that we hoped, but we are getting there slowly.  Read More
