Daryl J Potts is the Program Director for the Bachelor of Ministry Program and the Associate Degree Program.  Daryl’s particular area of expertise is in pastoral praxis and managing the spill-over of ministry work and responsibilities into the relational areas of the minister’s marriage and family.  Daryl's Doctoral Thesis investigated the impact that being involved in ministry has upon the family life of the minister. Daryl lectures in ministry based courses such as Church and Society, Foundations of Pastoral Ministry, Pastoral Administration and Management, Communicating the Christian Faith, Preaching, Healing Ministry and Pentecostal Practices for Ministry.

Prior to joining us at Alphacrucis College Daryl has been involved in pastoral ministry for over thirty years, starting out as a Youth Pastor upon his graduation from Bible College, and then being involved in pioneer, mid-size, large and Mega churches in Associate and Senior pastoral roles in churches across our nation.  He has served the AOG/ACC in various roles such as Youth Alive, District and Regional Leadership, State Executive membership and was Vice President on the State Executive in South Australia until he relocated to take up his role at Alphacrucis.
