Good News Sports began in 1998 after the appointment of Cameron Butler to the Melbourne Football Club in the AFL as their club chaplain. Working alongside athletes, coaches and sports management staff, including Player Managers and the AFL Players Association Cameron's vision has been to assist sports communities around Australia care for their members more effectively and in a genuine caring manner.
From group-wide critical incidents like the Bali Bombing and Boxing Day Tsunami when Troy Broadbridge died to individual grief and loss like divorce, emotional breakdown and the consequences of poor choices Cameron has overseen numerous 'care' cases over the past 20 years. Including the 13 years as CEO of Sports Chaplaincy Australia – a not-for-profit charity providing volunteer chaplains to sports around Australia.
The Community Builders in Sport
Cameron served for 15 years as a voluntary Chaplain to the Melbourne Football Club, assisted in developing care strategies for agents, clubs and leagues around our nation.
In 2018, after 20 years with Sports Chaplaincy Australia (13 as National Director) Cameron has stepped out to work with some of the most passionate and sharpest minds to address some of the biggest issues facing sports such as performance based identity, purpose, and community issues, like strategies for community transformation and the desperate need for volunteer 'urban' chaplains throughout the wider community.
Our vision at GNS is to see all our communities thriving and transformed by the practical expression of a chaplain modelling Christ's grace and mercy to them. A safe place where people can grow in a full expression of God's life, emotionally, intentionally and committed to others to enrich our wider-Australian community.
