Dr Andrew Ball was Executive Ministry Director for Churches of Christ in the NSW and ACT for 18 years prior to semi-retiring to help those in Christian leadership engage holistically in their own growth and development. During 2020 in his final year of service, Andrew chose to study the Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision at St Marks in readiness to help supervise senior leaders.
When finishing his course Andrew reflected on the experience as follows:
“After 35 years in ministry, I’ve seen that life on the front line in ministry is tough. Quality reflective practice is invaluable. I want to commend St Mark’s for your work in supporting ministers/pastors in this way.”
He believes that isolation and complexity are two critical factors causing many in ministry to flounder and hopes to use his skills, supervision training and experience to help other denominational leaders in their leadership.
