About 230 people, including congregation, visiting ministers and politicians attended the service of prayer and praise. Federal, state and local representatives welcomed Adam to Toowoomba and Pastor Dale White from HumeRidge Church of Christ gave a special welcome on behalf of the Christian Leaders Network.
Adam, his wife Bettrys and 18-month-old daughter, Amelia, have come to St Bart’s after spending the previous three years serving in the Anglican Parish of Noosa.
He previously spent a year in the UK completing further theological study at Durham University. Prior to this he ministered at Clayfield while also consulting as an Organisational Psychologist.
“We give great thanks to God for this appointment and look forward to witnessing how God will continue to use St Bart’s as part of the church in Toowoomba,” said Katy Goodall.
“Thank you to those throughout the city, who have joined in prayer as the St Bart’s congregation sought a new pastor for their church.”
Adam said his prayer for St Bart’s is, as they seek to make disciples in Toowoomba, that they may grow in Christ for God’s glory.
