After an early career as a research economist with the federal government, I began training and working in the Uniting Church in Australia as a youth and children’s worker. This included working in local churches and on state and national projects. I completed a Master’s Degree in Religious Education at Duke University in the US, studying with John Westerhoff and Stanley Hauerwas.
I’ve worked as a state and national youth director for the Uniting Church, in rural leadership development and as a state mission consultant. I have also been a faculty member of the Adelaide College of Divinity and Flinders University through my roles at Parkin-Wesley College and the Uniting College for Leadership and Theology in South Australia. I worked for the UCA Assembly as a Research Fellow and as the National Director for Formation, Education and Discipleship. Currently I am the Presbytery Minister – Church Development in Port Phillip East Presbytery in Victoria.
