Interview: Jannine Jackson

Rev Keith Garner interviews Jannine Jackson, the National Director of Frontier Services, a work of the Uniting Church in Australia that is focused on supporting rural and outback communities. Jannine explains how patrol ministers travel to remote communities and provide pastoral care and practical assistance.

"A listening ear and the company that companionship and being alongside somebody is very different from jumping on a website or a telephone call. And for them it's a lot to do with actually having that conversation and knowing that someone really cares, to be able to walk alongside them."
