Mrs Kerrin Huth
Lecturer in Educational Theology, Lutheran Strand Coordinator ACU Brisbane, Coordinator of Education Studies
Kerrin was born in Brisbane, moved to the beautiful Lockyer Valley at age 10, and continues living there today. She is married with four children (now adults) and loves spending time with family. Her passion for working with children began in her teenage years and developed through supporting children’s ministry in her church. This led her to primary teaching and for 29 years she taught in both State and Lutheran schools. Lutheran Education Queensland provided an opportunity to pursue her passion for teaching and leading Christian Studies through a secondment to support Christian Studies in Queensland Lutheran Schools as well as facilitating EQUIP training for teachers of Christian Studies. This in turn led her to ALC, commencing in Semester 1, 2017, allowing her to continue working with teachers of Christian Studies while following God’s call on her life.
