REGISTRAR AND PASTORAL CARE COORDINATOR
Dip CM, Cert. Min. Dev.
My passion is pastoral care. Drawing on previous Christian studies, a number of years as a mum to 4 now-adult children, and time in ministry, I get excited at being able to nurture and care for the students at Pathways. It's so rewarding seeing them develop spiritually as they seek out what exactly it is that God wants for their lives.
This is what Pathways is all about. Students getting to know God more, building Christian character, preparing for life ministry. I'm so pleased to have been provided the opportunity to contribute to that.
PA TO THE PRINCIPAL, OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR
Julie-Ann has worked in the education sector – from early childhood through to tertiary – all within the Christian framework. She feels it is her privilege to be a part of the Pathways team as they work together to glorify God.
Julie-Ann grew up in a family who honoured God. She has always been aware of his sovereignty. She personally committed her life to Him as a young adult and sees this as being the single most amazing decision ever. Her and her husband love living in the Bay of Plenty and are actively involved in their local church and their wider community.
People are what matter to Julie-Ann. They energise her, motivate her and empower her to live life well. She thrives in community and actively pursues quality relationships.
I have had the privilege of working for a number of education providers in recent years. My main focus has been teaching and academic administration, and it's the things I've learnt from these experiences that I now apply at Pathways. Inevitably, working at different learning centres has led me to compare how well Pathways stacks up against equally good colleges. A stand-out for me is the awesome one-on-one pastoral care and support each student receives. It's possibly the best I've seen.
