Anne has been in church based ministry for over thirty years, working in Western Australia, Papua (Indonesia) and Victoria. Working closely with her husband, Richard, they have sought to creatively respond to the various ministry contexts, developing local ministries that included an art gallery. She is passionate about the intersection between the arts and theology, and the ways in which we respond to the world meaningfully through the arts. This has led to the intentional inclusion of the arts as a key partner in theological education. She has worked in theological education for many years, particularly involved in the formational processes for ministers and church leaders. This has recently continued abroad, as they returned to Papua to offer encouragement and input in the growth and development of the next generation of leaders there. An avid gardener, sailor, musician, there is always much to do with her three adult children and grandson.
