The Deputy Warden

Revd Dr Christy Capper joins us as Deputy Warden and college Lecturer in Systematic Theology. After completing her undergraduate Bachelor's degree, she worked at Macquarie University (NSW) and later at the University of Newcastle in on-campus missional roles engaged in evangelism, discipleship and leadership-training.

In 2009 she moved to Victoria, where she began studying theology and working as a Youth and Young Adults Minister in South East Melbourne. Hearing a call to ordination and further theological education, Christy completed her Awards at Tabor Victoria before moving to Trinity College on a residential scholarship and beginning formal study for ordination. In this period, Christy also managed a residence for roughly 50 female international students, which aided her ministry with young adults and developed strong skill-sets in cultural awareness.

Christy moved to Adelaide in 2016 to take up the role of Director of Missiology with Uniting College. In 2019 she completed her doctoral work which considered the theological imperative to authentic selfhood, and proposed a theological definition of authentic selfhood.
