Anne 1

Anne Klose

Anne began her working life as a counselling psychologist and was privileged to spend 15 years listening to people (from both within and beyond the church community) grappling with the challenges of life.  It was from this background that she started working as a Formation Director with students preparing for ministry. This experience inspired her to undertake her own studies, culminating in a PhD in practical theology. Anne now mentors through Jacob’s Well Ministries and teaches at Malyon College. She also serves on the Board of Qld Baptists. Anne and husband Peter have two terrific sons, two wonderful daughters-in-law and a growing number of grandchildren. They fellowship at Gateway Baptist Church.
