“I am passionate about what breaks the heart of God and what we are called to do about it.”

Stepping into the role of Missions Pastor is an amazing realisation of a calling God has had on my life since I was a teenager. It’s an incredible opportunity for me to combine my love for my home church, 20 years of experience working in International Development and a continued pursuit of social justice within a missional context.

As a young kid, God broke my heart for those in physical poverty and facing overwhelming need. However, it was the experiences of living and working in India as an adult that really accelerated and developed different aspects of my faith and my desire to make a difference. There was a deep realisation that in any and all situations, Christ was and would always be my all-in-all. This was no more evident than when John, my husband, and I worked alongside those who were devastated by the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004 – all while I was four-and-a-half months pregnant! It was during this time that I could see in full HD the importance of understanding what it means to bring the good news that is both declared and demonstrated.

Since that time God has had me on a journey where I continue to learn that as I abide in Him, seeking to obey and express God’s heart-in-action, His Spirit gives me the grace to do what I could never do in my own strength.

If you are thinking about getting involved in missions, come in and let’s catch up, pray and see how we can engage with you as you seek to obey God’s prompting on your life in the area of mission!
