Tara is passionate about the Uniting Church and this opportunity to lead the important work and direction of Uniting Mission & Education in the coming, weeks and months.
“Uniting Mission and Education is a key resource for the Synod of NSW and ACT in equipping and training informed leaders who are able to integrate their learning and experience in local community to help people grow in faith, discipleship and leadership in the church.”
“I look forward to working with passionate, professional and community-focussed members of the staff, students, and candidates in exercising collaborative leadership each day, to ensure that mission and education are core values at the centre of our Synod.”
