prayed about how God could use him – he was approached to join the board of Mission Australia. “You read those lists of gifts in Romans chapter 12 and you think, ‘This is what it looks like’... the leadership and governance and sh apin g of Christian organisations like Mission Australia can have a tremendous impact in terms of reaching people with the love of Jesus in a way that local churches often can’t,” he says. “Anglicare has such a profound impact on the lives of so many people in Sydney in terms of reaching them with grace and mercy, [from] a retirement community where there are chaplains – a community with a Christian focus – right through to people who are in the darkest, most desperate need. [Anglicare] reaches into the community and extends that hand of love... I’m really grateful for the opportunity to be involved.”

Archbishop Kanishka Raffel welcomed the appointment, saying, “The leadership of this organisation is one of the key positions of responsibility and trust in the Diocese, and I’m just so thankful to God for the way he has led the board through this selection process, and the wonderful news of the appointment of Simon”. Mr Miller, who will take up the role on February 7, is looking forward to the challenges that await him.“Anglicare is an organisation that has such a wonderful history – 160plus years of serving the city for Christ…that history, that richness, is deeply attractive to me,” he says. “But I also think that it’s the future. The way that we can continue to deepen and extend the way we love the city in the name of Christ is really exciting, and I’m really looking forward to the challenge and opportunity of doing that.” He observes that Jesus thinks about the concept of loving God with one’s heart, soul, mind and strength as “an integrated whole”, adding: “I think part of what I bring to Anglicare is wanting to live that out, and really love the Lord my God and love neighbour as self. And I think Anglicare is a wonderful place to do that.” Mr Miller and his family attend St John’s, Ashfield.
