Introducing Maja Whitaker

We are delighted to welcome Maja Whitaker to Laidlaw College, as our new practical theology lecturer.

Based at our Christchurch campus, Maja will be overseeing our growing relationships with partner churches, crafting and delivering a formational experience for our undergraduate theology students, supervising postgraduate research, and contributing to the leadership team of the School of Theology. She will also be progressing her profound investigations into the intersection of disability and eschatology, which have recently been submitted as a doctoral thesis to the University of Otago.

Maja pastors an Equippers Church in Timaru with her husband Dave, and is mum to her four girls. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, running, reading, and baking. She also writes some fascinating blogs on the topics of spiritual formation, parenting, and pastoral theology at www.somewhitespace.blog
