Susan studied a B Min as part of the requirements for a Candidate for Minister of the Word within the Uniting Church of South Australia. She was a full time student, having resigned from nursing and moving to Adelaide from Port Lincoln.

“I have experienced friendship, caring and nurturing at the College that gave me life. Students, lecturers and staff from varied backgrounds and ages shared together experiences, thoughts and opinions. This sharing broadened my learning, sometimes confirming and other times challenging my opinions in a way that was safe and enabled me to be whole,” she says.

“Study and change are not easy, the faculty and staff are there to help. If they can’t they will find some one who will. As soon as I commenced at Uniting College over six years ago, I felt like I was “home”.”

Today, Susan is an ordained Minister of the Word and in her first placement at Adare Uniting Church, Victor Harbour.
