Chris Casey Begins Role as Diocesan Intermediate Ministry Leader and Developer

As announced last year, Chris will be focussing solely on intermediate ministry for the Diocese.  His main days of work will be Monday and Tuesday.  Chris’ contacts remain the same: email chris@wn.ang.org.nz, 04 471 8589 or 027 472 1057.

Don’t panic!  We’re not losing Chris!  We apologise for the confusion over last week’s announcement regarding Luke Paynter being appointed to Youth Ministry, and not providing the context of Chris Casey’s ministry.

Chris has been planning for some time with Bishop Justin to solely focus on Intermediate Ministry from 2016.  This is a role that Chris has carried for 2015, and has determined that it needs sole focus to support our parishes in this crucial ministry where we often lose our young people in transition.

Chris’ Diocesan intermediate role will be half-time, and he will be supporting two parishes with their intermediate and youth ministry in the other half.  He is still very much part of the Young Persons Office and the Diocese.
