Jan was commissioned as a Church Army Evangelist at the end of 1983. She grew up in Victoria, in both Melbourne and Gippsland Dioceses. After college, Jan served in parishes in Tasmania and Sydney. Her ministry love in the last 20 years has been ministering to those behind bars, whether as a ‘chappy’ in Juvenile Justice, or in the adult prison system. She says, “it is an absolute privilege to share God’s love, salvation and peace with those ‘in green’, and I love seeing their lives change as they grasp these truths for themselves.”
Now officially retired because of ill health, Jan is still involved in prison ministry, through volunteer ministry with Kairos Prison Ministry Australia, as well as teaching knitting and crochet in a women’s jail. Jan lives in Sydney with her gorgeous little rescue dog Harry and attends Darling St Anglican Church.
