As we recently said farewell to Toby Baxter from his role as Director of COACH Network we would like share that Sam Hearn will be stepping in to this role as the Interim Director.
Sam has been back on board at COACH for the last couple of years after taking a sabbatical year to be the Mayor of the Mornington Peninsula Shire, and before starting at COACH finished five years serving as National Director of SURRENDER Australia – an organisation that creates partnerships and hosts events across Australia to engage Christians in local & global mission and justice activity.
Prior to this, he served for four years as a Mission & Ministry Coordinator with New Peninsula Baptist Church. He has also worked as a lecturer and consultant around organisational vision and strategy development.
He is one of the leaders of Jigsaw, a missional community-shaped church that is based in his neighbourhood of Tanti Park. He is also the Chair of Tanti Park Social Enterprises, an organisation he co-founded to operate the HomeGround café and provide vocational training and placemaking alongside disadvantaged youth.
