Congratulations to Mr Allan Sauer on receiving a Medal (OAM) Of The Order Of Australia for service to the Anglican Church in the Australia Day Honours in 2016.
Allan served as Honorary State Secretary for the Queensland office of Bush Church Aid from 1981. He provided pastoral care to Queensland-based Field Staff and grew BCA’s supporter base in the region to the point where BCA was able to appoint a full-time State Secretary from 1989. Allan was involved in strengthening BCA’s relationships with the Bishops of the six Anglican Dioceses in the region (Grafton, Armidale, Brisbane, Rockhampton, North Queensland and Carpentaria) and liaising with representatives of other denominations at the state and regional level. After 1989, Allan continued to represent the State on the Federal Council until stepping down from this role in 1995.
We congratulate Allan and give thanks to God for his faithful service to BCA.
