Therese has been attending Moore Park Baptist Church for over 25 years. As an elder since December 2019, Therese has been passionate about having a team of elders who work alongside the Pastor to look after the spiritual leadership of the church. She recognises the value of spiritual, emotional and physical health in leadership and spends much time mentoring others towards those values.
Whilst the role of an elder can be quite varied, Therese currently also serves as one of our Worship Leaders, regularly leading our Sunday morning services. Moreover, she also facilitates personal and corporate prayer and consistently uses her work experience as an adult educator to teach and mentor others. Therese introduced the Kids Hope program, mentoring children at Indooroopilly State School in 2007 and coordinated that program until recently where she returned to full time work in Higher Education. Therese and her husband, Richard, also coordinated our children’s ministry for a number of years.
Therese and Richard have two adult children and a growing family of grandchildren. In her spare time, Therese enjoys spending time outdoors walking through local bush tracks and listening to a diverse collection of podcasts.
