Ps Grant Buchanan
Associate Lecturer in Ministry, Program Director - Bachelor of Theology

Grant is a member of the Faculty of Theology .


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.  From 2010-2015, he covered a number of part time roles apart from his teaching, including chaplaincy and counselling. He re-joined the Harvest Bible College Staff in 2015 as Dean of Learning and Teaching and is currently the BTh Program director with AC. He is presently completing his PhD at University of Divinity in Melbourne looking at a pneumatological reading of Galatians and how this impacts identity.

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

When not drinking coffee, talking coffee and thinking coffe, 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 enjoys 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 within Australia and beyond.
