“One life, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for Christ” (24/7 Squad motto)
The 24/7 Squad is a team of volunteers who come to Student Convention and are prepared to do anything necessary to help the SCEE staff make Student Convention successful. Squad members are usually graduates of the A.C.E. program, however sometimes students can be over 20 years of age and still at school because of the lack of educational opportunities. If these older students have a heart to serve, they could also come as volunteer Squad members. The Squad is also open to willing adults who can volunteer their time for the whole Convention. It is an opportunity for students who have been blessed by Student Convention during their school years to put something back into Convention to bless the next generation of students. Senior students who are still enrolled in a school or home school provider may be eligible to serve in a 24/7 squad somewhere other than their own region. These senior students, and their parents and/or supervisors, should contact the Events Coordinator, and their suitability will be assessed on a case by case basis.
You don’t have to be an expert, just willing to serve!
The idea of the 24/7 Squad was birthed as a result of a Student Convention message in 2001 exhorting us to live 1 life 24 hours a day 7 days a week for Christ (1L2474C). That message identified four elements of a 24/7 Christian lifestyle: Commitment – Jeremiah 24:7, Obedience – Exodus 24:7, Worship – Psalm 24:7, Wisdom – Proverbs 24:7.
We especially celebrate the 24/7 Christian lifestyle on 24/7 Day, which is the 24th day of the 7th month (24th July) each year. We encourage everyone to take up this celebration and on that day especially contact each other to encourage and exhort one another to live their one life 24 hrs a day 7 days a week for Christ. The first 24/7 Squad served at the South Pacific A.C.E. Student Convention in 2002. Since then selection as a 24/7 Squad member has become an honour shared by many graduates, parents, teachers and senior students. These “Squaddies” have made an invaluable contribution to Conventions throughout the South Pacific, leading by example and encouraging students to continue to raise the standard for Christ as they use their gifts and talents to minister to the world around them.
The 24/7 Squad has now progressed to other A.C.E. Student Conventions around the world, with the “24/7 Team” at European A.C.E. Student Convention, “His Servants 24/7 Squad” at International Student Convention, “24/7 Squad” at the All African A.C.E. Student Convention, and the Student Convention in Singapore.
