At: The Northbridge Piazza community Centre, First Floor Meeting room.
Freedom2b Perth is proud to announce a visit by the National Chaplain Rowland Croucher and John Wallace a member of the Sydney Chapter.
Rowland Croucher is a Baptist pastor/counselor who resides in Australia. After pastoring churches – small and large – in Australia and British Columbia, Canada, he then pursued a Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller Seminary, Pasadena.
He has since begun a ministry-at-large with pastors and churches in Australia and in many other countries.
He is currently director of John Mark Ministries, focusing particularly on the fifty percent of clergy who leave parish ministry for various reasons. (He says there are 12,000 of these ‘mostly wounded warriors’ in his native country of Australia alone – and they generally feel they’ve ‘fallen into a black hole’).
The John Mark Ministries website is one of the three largest in Australia, with over 10,000 hits a day. Website: www.jmm.aaa.net.au
John Wallace is a doctor working at Sydney Adventist Hospital in Emergency. He does a lot of work in building bridges between churches and the gay community.
John has an SDA background and has been actively involved in furthering the conversation with church leaders in that context and he is also involved with other churches – mainly behind the scenes.
He is a board member of ABBI, the organisation Anthony Venn Brown has set up to build bridges between the GLBTI and church communities.
He came out 2 years ago after more than 30 years of marriage. He found he could remain in the closet no longer. He has 3 adult children, with whom he has a good relationship. He and his wife remain friends.
The Northbridge Piazza community Centre is located on the Corner of James and Lake Streets Northbridge.
