Welcome to Heroes Academy

Heroes Academy was founded in 2018 by Nations Church. Heroes Academy seeks to support primary school aged children from the community with diagnosed additional needs and their families.

Heroes Academy supports these families in the following ways:

  • Heroes Academy events
  • Heroes Academy on Sundays

Heroes Academy on Sundays

Our team provides support for primary school aged children with additional needs and their families to go to Church if they so desire.  We believe that all families and children should have equal access to faith and the church community. All are welcome!

Why Heroes Academy?

There are more than 290,000 children living in Australia who have a disability. That means that many families cannot successfully take their children to church because there are not adequate programs to meet their child’s physical, social, and emotional needs. We understand that this profoundly impacts both the child and the whole family. Heroes Academy was founded as we began to realise that God wanted us as a Church to do something more for families who have a child with additional needs. We knew we needed to extend God’s love and acceptance to these families.

The Heroes Academy team is a dedicated and trained team of volunteers, who are passionate about all-abilities inclusion and have a heart for serving these families within our community. We believe that every child is unique, wonderful, and made in the image of God. We believe that with specific resourcing and individual support people of all-abilities can and should hold a meaningful space within our church.

Senior pastors Ken and Chrissy Lee are the founding leaders of Nations Church. They have two teenage sons, Jentezen, and Isaiah. Isaiah has a rare genetic syndrome called Mowat Wilson Syndrome. Due to his syndrome, Isaiah has extremely limited verbal expression, severely delayed motor skills and a mild-moderate intellectual disability.

As Isaiah’s parents, Ken and Chrissy have an intimate understanding of the unique challenges that come to families of children with additional needs. As church leaders with a vast array of resources at hand, Ken and Chrissy have a passion to help families in similar situations as their own.
