 Our Presbytery Ministers

Gippsland Presbytery has three Presbytery Ministers

The Presbytery Minister Administration is Wendy McDonald

Wendy came to the role from a corporate background with broad experience in various organisations in Melbourne and Gippsland as a Personal Assistant, Office Administrator and Secretary. She has been in the role since her commissioning in April 2008 and during that time has completed the requirements to be commissioned as a Lay Preacher and recognised as a Pastor. Since 2010 Wendy has also held the role of Presbytery Secretary.

Presbytery Minister- Mission and Education Rev Caro Field

Caro grew up in Sydney, and in 1985 undertook a residential training course in Christian Youth and Community Work, based at Kilmany Park in Sale, and later worked as a youth and community worker with Christian youth organisation, Fusion in Sydney, and then Hobart. (And she is noticing that Sale has changed just a little bit, since 1985).

Caro fell in love with Tassie, and ended up living in Hobart for 17 years, and it was during this time that she joined the Uniting Church, serving as Elder and
Church Council Chair for a number of years in her local congregation, Sandy Bay.

In her ‘life before ministry’ Caro completed studies and research in medical science at the Uni of Tas, and worked for 7 years as a Program Officer with a support and resource agency for General Practice in Hobart.

Caro comes to us from the Presbytery of North East Victoria, where she was minister to the congregations of Myrtleford, Beechworth, Yackandandah and Stanley for 7½ years. During that time she enjoyed the pastoral connections with people, as well as providing input and leadership to the Beechworth Celtic Pilgrimage each year.

Within the Presbytery of NEV, she was active as a member of PRC, convenor of the Presbytery’s Candidates’ Committee, Period of Discernment Coordinator, and secretary of the Presbytery’s Strategy Task Group.

Caro is excited (and just a little bit terrified) to embark on the different style of ministry which her new Presbytery Minister role will entail. She has a passion for encouraging and enabling the people of God to discover, develop and exercise their God-given gifts, and looks forward to working with the congregations and ministry workers across Gippsland, as we all seek to answer the question, “What does it mean for us to be the people of God in this place?”
