Among their diverse reach of care services throughout Queensland, Victoria and Vanuatu, which is expected to grow under Dr Scully, is Churches of Christ in Queensland’s 19 retirement villages and 26 residential aged care services.

Board Chair Gary Edwards welcomed Dr Scully to the role, which he commenced last month, and says he brings a deep amount of experience, vital to continue the organisation’s growth trajectory.

“Paul has held positions with UnitingCare Queensland and, most recently, as Chief Executive Officer of Baptist Care in South Australia where he oversaw a period of considerable expansion and re-engagement of care services with local communities and congregations,” Mr Edwards says.

“This is exactly the sort of experienced leadership that we need to continue our growth and fulfil our vision and mission.”

Dr Scully has a number of doctorate, bachelor and masters degree qualifications, and in addition is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management (FAIM) and has been recognised for his leadership by being named as the Not-for-Profit Manager of the Year for 2015 in AIM’s Excellence Awards for South Australia.

In his new leadership role, Dr Scully will be responsible for the strategic direction of Churches of Christ in Queensland and the delivery of hundreds of mission activities and care services to tens of thousands of people in Queensland, Victoria and Vanuatu.

“I look forward to working with such a progressive and active community organisation and particularly supporting our faith communities as they make a difference in people’s lives every day,” he says.

“Churches of Christ not only feels like home to me, it also has a good reputation throughout the country and beyond for its innovative delivery of a range of services in seniors care, affordable housing, and children, youth and families to name a few.

“This comes down to those at the front line, those in our churches, care services, and on the ground. Whether they are a church member, staff, resident, client, carer or volunteer, they are all part of something big, something special.

“Where Churches of Christ is now is a testament to the vision of the current leadership and I seek to continue to deliver on the strategic direction.”
