Mission Profile

Emily Quinn

Serving with BCA since January 2023


Emily is the Coordinator of the Foundation Studies Department at Nungalinya, a combined churches training college for Indigenous adults. She oversees the delivery of three ‘foundation’ courses: a pre-Certificate I, a Certificate I and a Certificate II course in English as an Additional Language or Dialect. Each course is delivered over a three-year period, in four-week intensives, with a focus on literacy, numeracy and the Scriptures.

Nungalinya College is a combined churches training college for Indigenous Australians. The College trains men and women for leadership roles in churches and communities by exploring the Bible and Christian faith contextually. Students are trained to understand and participate healthily in community life while strengthening and celebrating Indigenous identity. Approximately 95 per cent of the student intake is from remote communities across the NT, WA, Qld, and down into SA.


Emily's Points for May 2024
Translation courses resume in May, beginning with the Murrinh Patha language. Pray for the teachers (Indigenous and non-Indigenous), and students as they go deeper into learning about the Word of God in their heart language.

Emily's Points for June 2024
Pray for classes as we approach the mid-year break; for energy for teachers and students alike. Thank God for the cooler weather that starts to move through the Top End at this time of year.
