Ministry Development

We aspire to be a Diocese where each congregation is a self-sustaining unit of the Church of God where the Sacraments are celebrated and the Word proclaimed, where each member’s gifts are recognized and their ministries encouraged, and where the love and care within the congregation spread out to the community beyond so that Christ’s love will be experienced and known by all.

The Ministry Development Officer, The Reverend Gael Johannsen, is responsible for co-ordinating Christian education and formation in the Diocese, working with and providing resources for ordained and lay people.  All this fosters spiritual growth, identification of gifts, ministry formation and congregational development.
