Equipping for Life, a Belfast-based charity established in 2018 by Bro David Jardine, a Canon in the Church of Ireland, has announced two recent appointments to senior management in the organisation.
Audrey Currie will take over the position of Co-director and Darrin Barr has been appointed Area Support Officer.
Equipping for Life aims to enable people of faith to equip others for life by partnering with existing initiatives which are seeking to improve education, employability and social cohesion.
Audrey began her teaching career in Orangefield Girls’ School, and for the past 30 years has been part of the senior management team of Stranmillis University College.
She is passionate about seeing young people reach their full potential and is committed to helping Equipping for Life become a life-changing ministry that partners with churches, schools and communities across Northern Ireland.
Audrey is dedicated to building on the strong Christian foundation of the ministry, especially in regard to prayer.
Darrin has a PhD in organic chemistry and began his career in the pharmaceutical industry, later moving into education and serving for many years as Vice Principal of Victoria College. He was also Vice Principal of Bloomfield Collegiate in East Belfast, and was Principal for nine years.
Darrin is a member of the Belfast Vineyard Church where he plays an active role. His main responsibility will be to spread Equipping for Life throughout Northern Ireland.
Welcoming the new members of the management team, Bro David said: “We are delighted to have two people of such calibre working with us.”
