Tina is a cradle Methodist and grew up in the Middle East and India. After graduating from BusinessSchool in India, she came to the UK on a gap year in 2003, to work in Doncaster at the then
Hexthorpe Methodist Church. She spent the year supporting ex-offenders, refugees, asylum seekers. In the process she learnt valuable lessons which no business school could teach her. At the end of the year, she felt God had transformed her life and she felt a clear calling to ministry in a lay capacity. She then went to Cliff College; after gaining a Masters in Missions and Ministry, she went on to work in a variety of fixed term contracted jobs either as a pastor, a lecturer or an operations manager. Tina is happy and proud of her eclectic career which has provided her with opportunities to travel worldwide, befriend and work alongside people from diverse cultures and communities.
Life came a full circle for her in 2022 and as only God would have ordained in, she returned to
Doncaster and eventually took on the role of finance and property office for Doncaster Methodist
Circuit. Tina works part time, 3 days a week. When not working, she can be found writing assignments or at a placement as part of her latest pursuit to become an accredited counsellor.
She is passionate about mental health and emotional wellbeing. She believes at administration is a spiritual gift and regards her calling to finance and property management as a means to facilitate the Ministry of Word and Pastoral Care.
Her interests include, cinema (Bollywood!), poetry, food and fashion.
