What do you enjoy most about the PTC community?

I love that we can be united in Christ, and be an encouragement to one another to persevere in faith and serve God.

Tell us about your job.

My full-time role is to be a mother of my three children Kai, Ellie and Hannah, and be the helper to my husband Jesse. I believe the role of helper to my husband means being a fellow worker alongside him in the ministry. As part of this, I am a leader of the College Ministry Wives association here at the PTC.

How has being the wife of a candidate challenged or strengthened your faith?

No matter what stage of life, there are challenges. In this phase in particular, enabling my husband to have uninterrupted study time is certainly a challenge, especially as much of his work is at home. Finances and time management are challenging areas, so I need to trust that God will provide for us.

What do you look forward to most in your future role as wife of a full-time minister?

I was actually praying for God to allow me to be a minister’s wife, two years before I met Jesse! I am grateful that God put the desire in my heart so early on, so the role wasn’t thrust upon me unexpectedly. I think it’s wonderful that minister’s wives can love and encourage people full-time, so I really look forward to doing this for a congregation.

How can we pray for you?

Please pray for patience and endurance as we spend our final year at the college, and that we will be well prepared for full-time ministry. Pray that we continue to fight sin in our lives, especially so that we will never be a stumbling block to others coming to know Jesus.

On Saturday 15 October, women from across the state of Victoria gathered together at the Presbyterian Theological College to sit under the teaching of guest speaker, Carmelina Read. Carmelina led the women through the book of 2 Thessalonians, encouraging them to ask themselves how they can best live today in light of the certain and final return of Jesus.

At the Presbyterian Theological College I gained a deeper understanding that I am weak, sinful and helpless, but that our God is glorious, using even unworthy sinners like me to proclaim His gospel which brings about new creation.

From my ministry experience, the biggest thing I’ve learnt is that it is God who builds the church. He is sovereign over everything, and anything good that happens is His doing, and it is He who deserves the glory.
