Te Kupu Whai Ora a te Atua
Kevin and Jillian Connole
Kevin has been pastoring churches in NZ for 28 years. With his wide-ranging practical skill-base, he has been described more than once as “not your typical pastor”! Equally at horne in mechanics’ overalls, or with woodworking tools or a shovel in hand, he is looking forward to using his practical skills to lend support as needed.
Jillian completed her BA with a Linguistics major after the children left home, eventually becoming the last person in the family to graduate! A short-term visit to a Translation Project in Bangladesh in 2015 re-ignited her passion to get involved with Bible Translation work. She will be working as an intern in the Linguistics Department. Kevin and Jillian have 3 married children, and five much-loved grandsons.
For relaxation, they enjoy bush walks, cycle touring and basic camping – their holidays are often a blend of all three.
