Our church has gone through a very difficult season with the dismissal of our pastor. This required us a team to be raised up and take on the running of the church, whilst at the same time dealing with the fall out of our ex-pastor’s actions. Throughout this time Bev Murrill was an immense support and an encourager. Without the input of her, her husband Rick, and the other core leaders of CGI, the organisation Bev and Rick lead, I’m not sure our church would have survived. We would certainly not be in the position we are today.
One of Bev’s greatest gifts is to speak and inspire groups, whilst also valuing personal relationship and taking the time, even in the midst of a pressured season, to mentor and build relationship with individuals. She dealt with difficult situations with incredible sensitivity and wisdom, whilst never once shying away from difficult truths, confronting things as needed and also seeking specialist help when it was required.
On a personal note, Bev’s insight and wisdom have greatly contributed to my growth, in both my spiritual walk and as a leader. Without a doubt our loss will be Australia’s gain.
