REV PHILIP COURT
Convener , Health & Community Chaplaincy Committee
The Health & Community Chaplaincy Committee is delighted to announce the appointment of Kellie Davis as our Ministry Wives’ Chaplain.
We selected Kellie from a strong field of applicants. She has a passion for ministering to women, an excellent mix of qualifications, and a robust life experience, including being a minister’s daughter. She is married with three school-aged children, with all the joys and challenges that brings.
The role Kellie will take on
Last year, after conducting a survey of ministry wives, the committee revised and updated the job description for their pastoral support. There is now a sharper definition of scope so as to provide encouragement, support and assistance where it is most needed. We recognise that women whose husbands are providing parish ministry face unique challenges and stresses that are often beyond the pastoral care capacities of their Sessions.
Kellie’s chaplaincy is available to all women whose husbands are employed within the PCV in paid parish ministry, or are in training for such a role. This includes the wives of home missionaries, licentiates and ministry candidates, as well as ordained ministers in paid parish ministry. This means Kellie will be available as a chaplain to around 100 women.
The working arrangements
Kellie commences work on Monday 21 March. She is employed on a three-year contract for three days a week.
Her working days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM (excluding public holidays).
From 21 March, Kellie’s contact details are:
Phone: 0493 393 800
Please join us in welcoming, supporting and praying for Kellie as she takes up her chaplaincy to ministry wives throughout Victoria.
