ABOUT US


Gary & Jennifer Strachan have been in formal ministry individually and then together since the late '70's and early '80's (respectively). Gary's ministry experience includes Pastoral Ministry both at Epping(NSW) & Belconnen (ACT) Baptist Churches and School Chaplaincy ministry at Epping Boys' High School. Jennifer's ministry experience includes ministering on three Pastoral teams at three churches, Hospital & Workplace Chaplaincy, Clinical Counselling with LifeCare Counselling & Family Services, Clinical Pastoral Counselling at Belconnen Baptist and now in Private Practice as a Counsellor/Therapist.

Gary & Jennifer come to this ministry through prompting, prayer, reading God's word, and seeking God's will and direction for their lives. They have received the encouragement of significant others who also perceive the great need and recognise the gifts and skills Gary & Jennifer bring to this kind of ministry.

Jennifer & Gary are involved with others around Australia who currently are involved in this kind of ministry to Ministers & Missionaries, and have been encouraged by them to develop this ministry. What Jennifer & Gary can offer as a team is quite unique within Australia, with currently only a small number of other couples working together with Ministers & Missionaries, and none offering the mix of gifts that Gary & Jennifer bring. Jennifer & Gary have become part of an Australian wide network called CareGivers which currently is involved with and offers support to 21 different denominations.

Jennifer's father, Noel Coleman, is a semi-retired Baptist Minister who also lives on the property, shares the vision for this ministry and brings with him many years of ministry experience.
