Our Minister

Mr Stan Klan

My background is in the world of education for three decades, where I was a teacher of history and a school principal. I undertook theological studies last century, taking the Bachelor of Divinity degree from the University of Queensland and the Master of Arts degree in Church History from the University of Melbourne. I have been an accredited lay preacher since the 1970s.

I have been called to provide an interim ministry at St Stephen’s Church between the recent retirement of Rev Dr Linda Hamill and the recruitment of a new minister, and I look forward to serving you.

My priorities in St Stephen’s are to lead quality traditional worship and provide mind-expanding preaching informed by my lifelong interests in Biblical Studies, Theology and History, and to get to know you better as I move among you as your pastor. Minister is a Latin word; its English translation is servant.

Please feel free to call me at anytime if I can be of any assistance.

God Bless

Stan – Interim Minister
