    About me

    Chloe and I both grew up in the North West of NSW (Gunnedah and Quirindi). We both studied at Newcastle university where we met at Hunter Bible Church. Chloe studied Occupational Therapy and I studied Physiotherapy. We both grew up with church as a big part of our lives and through Uni we both grew in what it meant to be a Christian and what it looked like to serve Jesus with our whole lives. We got married in May 2016 and together decided we wanted to be freed up to do ministry and see if full time paid ministry was for us.

    About my Apprenticeship

    We are both doing a 2 year apprenticeship with Hunter Bible Church in Newcastle. Throughout the apprenticeship we get to have a hands on experience about what full time ministry looks like, while being trained by a senior staff member (Jo Clark and Dave Allen). We get to experience a wide range of ministries including campus ministry to uni students, leading bible studies, scripture in schools, kids programs, helping people join church well and many other things. It's a great chance to grow in our character as we face many challenges and hardships, as well as great joy!
