Gordon Preece is an Anglican minister, the director of Ethos: Evangelical Alliance Centre for Christianity & Society, and the founding director of RASP, the Centre for Research in Religion and Social Policy of the University of Divinity, all in Victoria, Australia. The Green Room talked to him as part of an ongoing series of interviews with leaders of faith and work ministries.
TGR: How did you first become involved in faith and work ministry?
GP: I could, and I think theologically should, say through working in my father’s concrete products & home improvements business as a teenager. It’s there that I realised there was a difference between the largely working class people who worked for Dad and the middle class Presbyterians where I attended church. They were a bit rough in some ways: swearing, girlie posters on the walls.
