Having completed a Bachelor of Theology and a Bachelor of Ministry from Australian Lutheran College by 2014, I have served as an ordained Lutheran pastor for 9 years in both Gympie and the Northern Darling Downs. During that time, I completed a Graduate Diploma of Divinity focussing on the hermeneutics and ontologies of Paul Tillich and John Caputo.
I received a call from St. Stephens in late 2022 and took up the position of minister at the start of 2023, moving from the Lutheran to the Uniting Church. While distinct, the two traditions are similar and hold in common the foundation of saving grace as the pure gift of God, won through Christ, received by faith.
At St. Stephen’s, I aim to provide Uniting Church members in Toowoomba with quality traditional worship and thoughtful preaching for an engaged Christian life based in inclusive Biblical and Existential theologies.
If you would like pastoral care, spiritual advice, or assistance in planning a baptism, wedding, or funeral please don’t hesitate to contact me.
