I started my involvement in ministry in my late teens through beach missions and teaching CRE. I worked on staff at Doncaster Church of Christ throughout my theological studies and became ordained in 2005. I specialized in children’s ministry, service coordination and missions – both to the local community as well as overseas in the Philippines. I became one of the first State Primary School chaplains in Victoria as I pioneered a relationship between the local school and church. For two years I planted a church in a green-field area of Melbourne.
I worked as the breakfast program producer for 89.9 LightFM, the Christian radio station in Melbourne, Australia for three years and then worked for CBM, a not-for-profit organisation that assists people living in poverty with disability.
I am currently part of the Senior Leadership Team of One.Church in Blackburn, Australia overseeing the Children’s and Families ministry.
I have completed a Bachelor of Arts (psychology), a Bachelor of Theology and an Advanced Diploma in Ministry.
I’m married to Cameron and we have had three foster children, a foster grandchild and our own biological son.
Throughout my faith journey I have treasured the wisdom I have learned from the Bible. I love being able to apply the scripture to everyday life and appreciate that its wisdom helps me to have a greater understanding of who God is and who He calls all people to be.
Within this website you will be invited to join me as I explore what the Bible has to say about God, faith, life and leadership.Linda Bailey
