Celebration Dinner Highlights

Home / Celebration Dinner Highlights

At the Celebration Dinner we were entertained by Dan Warlow, as well as Leanne Kenneally and Leon Warnock. We heard from Carinity, who were generous in their sponsorship of the evening. We honoured David Angell for his outstanding sacrificial service as acting CEO of Carinity over the last 14 months as well as being introduced to Kevin Griffiths, the incoming Carinity CEO. We were excited to hear about the possibilities of the Collaborative Community Projects Grants from Philip Hamilton, the Community Development Coordinator at Carinity. 

Congratulations to John and Cheryl White and Angelo and Faith Giovas on being inducted into the QB Hall of Faith. 

John and Cheryl served at Magnetic Island, Glenden, Yandina, and Mt Isa, then a season as Townsville Pastor Administrator. They have served since 2009 at Atherton Tablelands including being Regional Minister for Far North Queensland since 2020. 

Angelo and Faith served at Boonah/Kalbar, Mundubbera, Minden, and as the BUQ Camping Ministry Co-ordinator. They then served with Sydney City Mission (Mission Employment, Punchbowl), ABMS (PNG), and North Shore Baptist before returning to Queensland to serve at Cairns Northern Beaches, Annerley, and in Intentional Interim Ministries. 

Thank you for your faithful service for over 40 years.  

We heard from Mark Wilson, National Ministries Director at Australian Baptist Ministries, who encouraged us as we prepare for the 23rd Baptist World Congress being held here in Brisbane.
