Hannah Chapman

Raised in a family that fleshed out their deep commitment to reconciliation in the context of whānau, Hannah has continued to live out the same conviction. Inspired by the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous Peoples, a movement she was raised in, she is a co-founder of iEmergence International which operates in Canada and the Philippines, and Good Water – a gathering that nurtures a global Christian indigenous community of faith. Hannah is Ngāti Tuwharetoa, Whakatöhea and Irish and lives with her 3 children on ancestral land in Tūrangi in a whānau papakainga with her parents, grandmother and extended whānau. Their collective aspiration is to restore traditional ways of being and thrive within their whānau and hapū contexts. Hannah works as a National Manager for The Parenting Place.

Frank is a media junky and regular media contributor, helping raise awareness and understanding around global issues and how all Kiwis can respond.
Frank’s faith has been shaped through a colourful and diverse journey that has seen him experience the knocks of life, and also the beauty on offer. His desire is to find the nuggets of God’s Spirit at work in all of it, all the time, with everyone.

Chris Farrelly

(CEO: Auckland City Mission)
Chris has been the CEO of Auckland City Mission for the last year. Prior to this he was chief executive of Manaia Health Public Health Organisation in Northland, since its founding in 2003. At Manaia, Chris led a number of programmes addressing key social determinants of poor health such as poverty, substandard housing, and unemployment, including a large housing insulation project, and the close working with Fonterra to bring back free milk into New Zealand schools. Chris has worked in Northland's health system for 25 years, beginning with works in the area of HIV/Aids care, support, education and advocacy.
Chris spent 10 years living with urban poor in South Korea, where he led a number of health and social development programmes. There, he saw families pushing to get themselves out of poverty, and he's seeing that at Auckland City Mission already. So joining the City Mission was a call to his heart as well as his expertise and experience. What stands out for him is in the midst of all this he continually encounters incredible goodness and human strength.
Other areas of interest for Chris include, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and addressing inequity, partnership with Maori, mediation and conflict resolution. He has Master of Theology and a Graduate Diploma in Dispute Resolution.
