From Anglican Missions Board: “It is with mixed feelings that we announce our dear colleague Mike Hawke who will be leaving us to become the new Dean of the Cathedral in Nelson.
Scripture tells us that ‘there is a time and season for everything under the sun.’ With this in mind, we honour and celebrate with Mike the beginning of a new chapter in his life and journey of faith. We are sure that his presence and efforts in Nelson (along with the pavlovas!) will be priceless!
We give thanks for the 6 years that Mike has been with us. Thank you Mike for always being passionate about the work of AMB and God’s call to overseas mission. Thank you for your amazing contribution to our 3 Tikanga church, dioceses, Hui Amorangi, parishes and rohe; and to our Mission Partners in New Zealand and overseas.
We release Mike with our blessings, aroha and prayers.”
