Brian made a decision to follow Jesus in his teenage years and has been on a journey of experiencing more of God’s grace, mercy, and love ever since. In following the call of Jesus on his life, Brian has proved the words of Jesus to be true – ‘I have come that you might have life, life in all its fullness’
A chartered accountant by profession, he operated his own accountancy practice in Dural until 1990 at the same time doing part time bible college. While being a part of the church since 1980, Brian was invited onto the pastoral team of the church in 1991 with the brief of building better connections with the community.
As a result Brian was involved in the initial planning of the ‘The Centre’ and took on the role of Centre Manager and Pastor of Community Outreach. He is excited about being part of a Church that continues to impact the community of the Hills District, and the opportunities that keep emerging across the globe to be involved in mission and community development through sport and leadership training. These opportunities have led to ongoing mission in the Solomon Islands and in Australian indigenous communities.
Married to Lynne with three adult children. Brian loves sport and the great outdoors, particularly four wheel driving.
Lynne is a qualified school teacher and school counsellor, who has long given up teaching, but is involved in the music ministry, small group ministry and mentoring.
