New ministry for Central Mallee district

Jeremy is currently the Priest in Charge at St Phillip’s, Mount Waverley in Melbourne along with Chaplain at Monash University. Jeremy has also served at St Philip’s, Collingwood and All Saints’ Newtown and Geelong West. Before being ordained in 2011 Jeremy completed a Bachelor of Applied Science and held several roles in areas of town planning, economic development and strategic planning.

Jeremy is married to Claire, who is also ordained and currently serves for St Vincent de Paul as well as assisting with children’s ministry in the parish. Claire will be licensed as a deacon to assist Jeremy as he works to plant new ministries in the small communities along the Calder and Mallee highways.

Jeremy and Claire will base themselves in Ouyen, but will travel extensively to the various communities throughout the Mallee area, with an intention to return to a ministry in which the pastor will travel to minister to Christians in their own locality rather than centralising ministry in larger centres.

It is hoped that through Jeremy and Claire a network of relationally linked local congregations will be grown, and the capacity of local lay leaders built up.

Jeremy and Claire will begin the week of 11 November 2019.
