Reverend Dr Geoff Leslie
Interact with and observe agricultural life as a basis for theological reflection on agriculture, the land, social and family life, the environment and economics in a rural setting. Explore needs, opportunities and appropriate models for ministry in rural Australia, including in times of natural disaster. Out of reflections on these themes using the Bible and contemporary discussions, appropriate models for pastoral care, church life, community involvement and support in times of natural disaster will be developed and evaluated.

Whitley College is a culturally diverse community of learners committed to practical expressions of God’s activity in the world. We wrestle together in spiritual formation through theological reflection, creative exploration and academic rigour.
Shaped by the Bible, and drawing on our Baptist heritage, we are responsive to the contemporary needs of church and society, affirming liberty of conscience in conversation with other traditions of religion and spirituality.
Our educational ethos unifies heart, thought and hands, giving priority to personal and social transformation.
