Our most important resource continues to be our 3600 staff and 1000 volunteers who exemplify Care you can trust each and every day. We thank them for their hearts, their dedication and commitment and for the difference they make in the lives of our customers.
The Association of Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT continues to work alongside BaptistCare, and we thank them for the very practical and prayerful partnership we enjoy.
The leadership of our Board of Directors, our Executive Committee and Senior Leadership Group have ensured BaptistCare is well positioned for the future, and to them we express our sincere gratitude. Of particular note, we farewell and thank Robert Dunn, who resigned from the Board during the course of the year. His professionalism and wise counsel will be greatly missed.
We appreciate those that have gone before us and paved the way for BaptistCare to become the caring, trustworthy and Christ-led organisation it is today. Our members and donors play a very special role in our organisation, and we are indebted to their passion, commitment and long-standing support of our mission.
In particular, we thank Ron Robertson, our first Secretary, who went to be with the Lord on Monday 27 June. Ron gave 27 years of employment and service to our organisation, and with his wife Nancy, was pivotal in the development and expansion of services in those very early days.
As always, we thank God for his grace and provision. We commit the future to Him, confident that under God’s direction, BaptistCare will continue to grow and prosper as we seek to leave an imprint of the love of Christ on the lives of those for whom we care. With all the challenges of change we face, we continue to place our trust in Him as our refuge and our strength. (Psalm 46:1)
