Marian Ashford

Children's Ministry leader, GB Captain

Marian has oversight of Children's Ministry at Tuggeranong Baptist Church and is Captain of Kambah Girls’ Brigade.

She started her Girls' Brigade career, back in 1998, as a Captain because her daughter came to her in tears “they’re going to close Girls’ Brigade because they can’t get a captain Mum”. Marian had been praying for sometime for a worthwhile thing to do with her time now everyone was at school – God obliged and he confirmed the ‘feelings’ as only God knows how to do!

More recently, Marian has become National Commissioner for Girls' Brigade Australia where she brings her passion for bringing children into a loving relationship with God together with her people and organisational skills.

In all that she does, Marian demonstrates her reliance upon the faithfulness of God and His ability to provide.
