Compassion Australia is an incredible organisation – led by an incredible man.
Tim Hanna is passionate about empowering those who are without resources, or hope, which led him to his current role of CEO of Compassion Australia. Tim was a senior pastor for more than 30 years and in 2008, he took the role of National Director of Church and Mission with Compassion Australia. In 2010, he became CEO.
After almost 10 years of service as CEO, Tim is making plans to retire in 2020. In an announcement video to supporters, Tim said “the word retirement does not sit well with me”, and explained that he planned to spend time coaching and mentoring young leaders, helping young people in their faith journeys, writing, and spending more time with his wife and family.
Sam and Duncan had a chance to talk with Tim about his journey from pastor to CEO, and some of the most rewarding parts of his job.
