Biography

Grant came to Australia to take a position in an ACC church in Melbourne’s SE suburbs primarily as Creative Ministries and Small Groups Pastor.  Since 2010, he has been covering a number of part time roles apart from his teaching including chaplaincy and counselling.  He has begun his doctoral research at University of Divinity in Melbourne looking at a pneumatological reading of Galatians and how this impacts on identity.

As a chaplain and counsellor, Grant continues to engage in pastoral care and counselling helping encourage and equip people for life and ministry is active as an itinerant speaker, and though not on staff, is a part of the leadership team of a missional church in Pakenham.

When not drinking coffee, Grant spends time reading, at the gym and time with his wife Trudy, his two boys, Joel and Zac and friends.  Both he and Trudy love exploring the various eating precincts of Melbourne.  He loves NZ Rugby, AFL and action movies.  As a musician for many years his taste varies from Blues through Rock to some forms of Jazz.  He loves flying and previously worked as a flying instructor.  Travel for love and ministry is high on the agenda, so he and Trudy are looking forward to holidaying and ministering more abroad within Australia and beyond.
