Andrew is married to Heather and they have two married sons and three grandsons. Prior to coming to HTD, Andrew lectured at Ridley Melbourne in Old Testament, Hebrew, and hermeneutics. Before that he worked in IT as a network and systems administrator while leading an independent evangelical church plant at Curtin University in Perth. He has also been the senior pastor of St Matthews Anglican Church in Shenton Park, WA, Anglican Chaplain at Macquarie University, and National Director of the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES).
Andrew is also the author of a number of Christian books on the Old Testament, hermeneutics, and apologetics and has a passionate interest in preaching from the Bible, helping people understand the Old Testament as Christian scripture, and in training preachers. He regularly speaks at conferences around Australia and South East Asia, volunteers as an international facilitator for Langham Preaching, and has trained preachers in expository preaching in Australia, Pakistan, South East Asia, South America, and Papua New Guinea.
Andrew and Heather love bushwalking, trekking and camping. They have almost fulfilled their goal of driving and camping around every major section of Australia (only the east Kimberley to go!). Andrew relaxes by walking their two kelpies and watching quirky British detective series on TV.
Linda is usually the first person you see when visiting the church on weekdays. She started work as a legal secretary initially and later worked for the Commonwealth Public Service. She has been working at Holy Trinity since 1999 and says she loves her work and the people with whom she interacts.
HTD has an extensive staff team covering all its services. Linda can put you in touch with each of the team members.
