How do you see the Morling values reflected in your role at Morling?
I am excited to be a part of the dedicated team of educators here at Morling because we are wanting to teach in a way that is Christ-centred, biblically faithful, helps students integrate what they believe into how they live and is also transformative. I have just spent fifteen years serving in a very varied role in a hospital setting to the aged, those with acute mental illness, prisoners, new mothers and children with life-threatening illnesses. It has been a very varied ministry. I hope to bring that breadth of experience to bear in my leadership and my teaching to inspire the next generation of chaplains the Lord is raising up for His glory.
Stuart was involved in the translation into Japanese of a book by Jill McGilvray called "God's Love in Action, Pastoral Care for Everyone", (Acorn Press, 2009).
Dr Paula Davis is a clinical counsellor, supervisor, marriage educator and trauma counsellor/educator. Working in higher education over many years as senior lecturer in counselling, she has an extensive background of developing and delivering distinct programs for psychologically traumatised individuals and communities in ethnically diverse populations throughout the world and is a regular guest lecturer at Uganda Christian University. At Morling, Paula lectures in the Master’s specialty units; Crisis & Trauma Counselling 1 & 2. Paula has an unshakable desire to integrate her faith with her teaching and to learn what it means to love well. One of her many abiding passions is making a difference in the lives of others. However, she also enjoys lingering over a good coffee while chatting with her husband and can be found utterly absorbed in having fun in the great outdoors, enjoying anything that presents risk and challenge.
