Pastor Ray Minniecon is a descendant of the Kabi Kabi nation and the Gurang Gurang nation of South-
East Queensland. Ray is also a descendant of the South Sea Islander people with connections to the people of
Ambrym Island. He runs the “Scarred Tree” ministries at St John’s Anglican Church Glebe. His pastoral ministry
has included supporting members of the “Stolen Generations,” a term which refers to the tens of thousands of
Aboriginal children who, from the late 1800s until the 1970s, were forcibly removed from their families by
government agencies and church missions. His father, Sterling Minniecon, was the first ordained Aboriginal
Pastor in the Assemblies of God denomination, Australia.
