Brian has lived most of his life in the Hills District. A chartered accountant by profession, he operated his own accountancy practice in Dural until 1990. 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 Dural Sport & Leisure Centre and took on the role of Centre Manager and Pastor of Community Outreach. He is excited about being part of the team that continues to plan its growth and positive impact on 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 children. Brian loves sport and the great outdoors, particularly four wheel driving.
Lynne is a qualified school teacher and school counselor, who has long given up teaching, but is involved in the music ministry, small group ministry and mentoring.
