THE Ministry Formation Coordinator at St Mark’s National Theological Centre here in Canberra has been elected to the Anglican bishopric of Rockhampton.
“I am surprised, delighted and honoured by my election. Rockhampton is such a wonderful and diverse diocese, capturing everything from outback towns to 24/7 mining operations and coastal towns for people wanting a sea change,” David said.
His current boss at St Mark’s is sorry to see him go.
“The election is a strong endorsement of David’s contribution at St Mark’s National Theological Centre. David has exhibited the godly leadership, strategic decision-making and practical wisdom the Anglican Church needs from its bishops. We will miss David as a close colleague but look forward to continuing our partnership in theological education, Anglican formation and gospel ministry with the diocese of Rockhampton,” said the acting director of St Mark’s Geoff Broughton.
