SOUTH PACIFIC

Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand

Kath Henry // Tirzah’s Regional Leader in the South Pacific has a background in nursing, midwifery and caring for patients in Intensive Care. She has a BA in Health Sciences and a Master's degree in Adult Education and is currently studying for a Master's degree in Chaplaincy and Christian Spirituality. Kath has worked in the clinical setting and also as a lecturer, clinical educator and researcher. She also serves as Chaplain for a ministry that supports women who have been impacted by a friend or family member’s imprisonment.
 
Kath and her husband Phil are the senior pastors of Northridge Vineyard Church in Sydney. They have two amazing young adult children. Kath and the team are meeting regularly to pray for the South Pacific Region. Kath and the team are seeking  to develop the Tirzah's Emerging Leaders Network in Australia. She is seeking to connect and encourage women leaders across the Pacific Region, who through their faith in God, are seeking ways to combat national issues facing women and their communities.

I grew up in a family where I was encouraged as a young girl and as a woman to value education and was given a sense of responsibility to seek ways to encourage and develop others. Through my career as a nurse and midwife, I became aware of the important role women have in the world as leaders within families and communities. I have a heart to support and encourage Christian women who are seeking to raise awareness of issues for women in the South Pacific region and work towards transforming our world. 
 
I have a vision of all women knowing that they are loved by God. I believe that when women have the chance to explore what God has placed within them, and the support to develop skills and the freedom to live out their passion that our families, communities and nations become a better place.
