Rev Dr Richard Mallaby
BSc(Agric), BD, MEnvirSci, DMinStuds
Coordinator of Transformation Program
Richard Mallaby worked in agriculture in Western Australia before studying theology at the Baptist Theological College of WA and working in West Papua with Service Fellowship International in community development. Since returning to Australia in 1997, he has worked in pastoral ministry within Churches of Christ, and then for the last ten years, at Box Hill Baptist church with his wife, Anne.
Richard’s doctorate explored the experience of wonder and encounter for children in the natural world, and his pastoral ministry is significantly influenced by the need for creative and explorative experiences with children. He is keenly aware of environmental and social issues, and participates in theological dialogue on current concerns.
He serves on the Multicultural Committee of the Baptist Union of Victoria, and in serving at Box Hill, is actively engaged in encouraging multicultural ministries.
