We have a wonderful team here at Panania Anglican Church serving our Lord Jesus and the members of the congregation. Find out more about them below or pop in and say hello!
Senior Minister - Oversight and Ministry Direction
David is married to Sue and they have two adult children. He enjoys, photography; reading crime novels; days at the beach (few and far between!) and exploring different cultures. He especially appreciates spending time in the Scriptures gaining a deeper understanding of the great love the Creator, God, has shown to the people of our broken and often hurting world, by sending his One and only Son to share his life with us and do something about our 'brokenness'. David's passion is to see others come to love and serve Jesus as they get to know him through his life-giving Word.
Assistant Minister - Youth and Young Adults
Michael recently finished his study at Moore Theological college in Sydney. Before going to college he worked as a Risk Management Consultant keeping people safe from hazardous materials. He loves Jesus, coffee, and film. Michael came to know Jesus when he was a teenager through the example and teaching of his parents and his youth minister. He loves telling people about the love and grace that God offers them through Jesus. Michael believes that as well as giving us eternal life, Jesus shows us how we can have the best life now.
Assistant Minister - Children and Families
James is married to Amy and they have two young boys. James has recently finished theological study at Moore College, and prior to that worked as an investigator for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. James became a Christian at age 18, while travelling in the UK, and he wants everybody else to understand who Jesus is and follow him as well. James loves to meet new people and talk with them about anything and everything, usually over a good meal or a coffee. When he’s not doing that James loves to spend time with his family, cooking, and following the Swans in the AFL.
