Programme Coordinator Ministry Training (Maternity Cover)

BAppTheol, DiplApplFitness


Julie is the Programme Coordinator for the Ministry Training Department coordinating Pastoral Leadership, Youth Pastoral Leadership and Mission Track.

Julie has a background in the fitness industry having worked with at-risk population groups as a personal trainer and health coach before joining Carey, completing her Bachelor of Applied Theology and Pastoral Leadership training in 2017-2019. She is a mum to three teens/young adults, lover of photography, creative writing, beach swims, strong coffee and people!  She brings pastoral experience from working as an associate pastor and chaplain and is passionate about journeying well with people. Having been raised in a controlling, fundamentalist church, she considers Carey as the most formative three years in her life where the unravelling process was necessary to be woven back together in a safe and supportive environment.

“I love being part of the Carey community where Jesus is central to what we do and who we are. What a privilege it is to support and encourage people while they figure out what God is saying and where He is leading them.”
