Facilitator and Assessor
Diploma of Theology, Diploma in Ministry, Master of Business, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
Tony is the Trainer and Assessor for the Diploma of Chaplaincy course and will be involved in delivering training and assessment to Diploma students and Chaplains.
Tony is trained as an Emergency Services Chaplain with the NSW State Emergency Services where he is regularly called out to conduct both individual welfare checks and debriefs for large scale emergencies. He has also worked previously as a Chaplain within Aged Care at Anglicare. Tony also works part-time as a Correctional Officer (Custodial), which he thinks will be a good foundation for Prison ministry.
In May 2016 he completed a Police Chaplaincy course at the Police & Fire Chaplain's Training Academy (partnered with Washington State's Criminal Justice Training Commission) in Seattle. Tony also trained as a Minister for four years at Morling Theological College, and in management, including a Master of Business.
Tony's interests include Rugby Union and bushwalking. He recently recharged his batteries by completing the Portuguese Camino de Santiago pilgrimage walk in Portugal/Spain, which involved walking a distance of 750 kms over five weeks.
Tony is most excited about equipping Chaplains with the skills and tools to work effectively in the community and making sure that they take care of themselves spiritually, mentally and physically.
