Reverend Tracy Lauersen
Reverend Tracy Lauersen was appointed as Rector of StPaul’s Warragul in 2018. She is married to Sven and they have two young adult children: Abbey (24) and Freya (21). Tracy came to faith in Christ as a young adult and studied theology and ministry at Sydney Missionary and Bible College. She had a career in the corporate training field before being called to ordained ministry, and has ministered in school chaplaincy and in parish ministry at Prahran and kew, Melbourne. She is an advocate for gender equity in the Church and chairs a National Working Group on Family Violence for the Anglican Church of Australia. Tracy loves seeing people come to faith and to grow in their understanding of Jesus Christ – a joy she first discovered by volunteering on a Beach Mission Team and by teaching RE in Sydney. She and Sven moved to Warragul for her to take up this role and they are loving getting to know the wonderful Baw Baw shire. Please contact Tracy to ask any questions you may have about our Church or about how you can find out more about Jesus.
