Major Nancy McLarenQLD President
Having been called by God to ministry I entered into His work in The Salvation Army in 1975 and for a total of 23 years ministry was in Church work with my husband. Throughout the next number of years work and leadership were at Headquarters until after a total of 41 years of active service retirement looked good. My involvement with World Day of Prayer commenced right from the start of ministry in 1975 and continued as far as possible until now. I have held the position of State President 1992-1995 and from 2014..... I have also been involved with Australian Church Women whilst in Church ministry holding positions on State and National Executive including National President 2003 - 2005. It is a privilege to serve the Lord and see people grow in their faith and ministry.
I am married and with my husband Phillip we have 3 married sons and 7 grandchildren.
