Alumni Support Team

Alumni President - Ps Daryl Potts

Daryl J Potts is the President of the Alphacrucis Alumni Committee, and is the Program Director for the Bachelor of Ministry 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 is currently working on a Doctoral Thesis that is investigating 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, and Healing Ministry.

Prior to joining us at Alphacrucis College, Daryl was involved in pastoral ministry for thirty-one years. His ministry experience spans from Youth Leader after graduating from Alphacrucis College (formerly CBC) in 1984 to Associate and Senior Pastoral roles in pioneer, mid-size, large and Mega churches Australia wide.  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.  He brings the wealth of these experiences as a pastor and leader to the ministry stream of our College.

Alumni Manager - Chris Magnussen

Chris Magnussen is the Alumni Manager. Growing up in central Queensland Chris was raised by Christian parents and came to know Christ in his childhood. When he turned 18 he moved to Bowen to do Bible college and an internship. At the conclusion of his time at Bowen Christian Family Centre, Chris was the under 18's Pastor and Bible College coordinator where he pioneered further training centres in Townsville, Charters Towers and Cardwell. Also he was a regular preacher at the Bowen Church. 

In 2015 Chris moved to Brisbane joining with a training organisation with a Christian ethos whose focus was the marketplace. During his time in Brisbane he assisted in the pioneering of a church and consulted with various organisations on design and media strategies. In 2016 he moved to Sydney to take up the role as Donor Relations and Alumni Manager with Alphacrucis’ Advancement Department.

Chris is passionate about his new role and the vision of Alphacrucis becoming a Christian university. He also understands the importance Alumni play in the future of the college and would love to connect with you.

Chris is also available to share the Alphacrucis 'University Vision' in churches and other organisations in New South Wales.

Alumni Events

All over the world our Alumni meet to stay connected as a family. Have a look at some of the amazing Alumni events we have hosted and our Alumni organise to keep our community together! 



Alumni Old CodgersBrisbane Alumni

In the leafy northern suburbs of Brisbane every Monday a group of retired pastors, church leaders and missionaries meet to discuss the hot topics of the day over a cup of coffee. This group of legends was first brought together by one of our AC Alumni, Pastor Fred Evans.  



Alumni Event BrisbaneBrisbane Campus Event

The first building ever owned by Alphacrucis College (formerly CBC/SCC) and Australian Christian Churches (previously AOG) was in Brisbane many years ago. In March 2017 a new property was purchased in Woolloongabba to house our Brisbane Campus. This is the first time Alphacrucis has held two properties at one time and it was very significant for it to be back in Brisbane where we first purchased the 79 Moray Street, New Farm property. To celebrate this milestone of our history a number of our Alumni and friends gathered in the shell of this new building.   

Special guests were there from our 1948 class ("Van Couriers") and 1949 class ("Conquerors") who were honoured on the night. Family members and friends of Charles & Betty Usher were present and special mention was made of the Usher's family contribution which was a catalyst in the purchasing of Moray Street.

Future events are being planned around our new Brisbane campus and we would love you to come. We love connecting our past and future together as we would not be where we are if not for the love and sacrifice of those who have gone before us. 

Education Alumni EventEducation Event
Alphacrucis' Education Faculty has been training Christian teachers for some years. Some of our graduates gathered in the latter part of 2016 and celebrated their achievements in influencing their world for Jesus. Kasie (above photo) published a children's book, which has been taken up by many Christian schools in Australia. Other graduates shared about the doors that have opened to them in senior leadership roles in their respective schools.
