The National team consist of 12 young men and women who travel around the nation in a van running encounter days. They move from host home to host where families and homes around the nation giving them a place to stay for a few days or a week.
The team spend their days together while not doing ministry by travelling great distances, having days out, praying everyday, and preparing for the upcoming encounter days they have.
Each team is based in a local area all living in a house together where they live out all aspects of team life such as team prayer, meals, ministry prep and of course running ministry for their area. The team might be placed in a Diocese, a School or a parish. There they would facilitate encounter days, youth groups, small groups and other events for young people and young adults. The team is involved with all facets of the local area and involve themselves with the events already running.
NET has teamed up with Freedom to embark on their first teams based in universities. The aim is to encounter students who have perhaps stepped away from their faith or are looking for an opportunity to continue to grow their faith in an ever increasing secular world.
The teams this year are based at the University of Queensland and in Melbourne at Mannix college. This ministry has the potential to grow to every university in Australia.
