Rev. John is the new Minister at Toowoomba West Anglican Parish – St Augustine’s Church, Rockville and St Alban’s Church, Newtown.
Married to Felicity, they have five children under the age of 10.
“We moved to Toowoomba in December and I have to say that Toowoomba has pleasantly surprised us,” said Rev. John. “We are enjoying living here and getting to know our Parish and the community.”
Prior to coming to Toowoomba, Rev. John was an Assistant Minister at Gold Coast North Anglican and was finishing off his ministry apprenticeship.
Rev. John said he was raised in church but after school drifted away.
“At some point I realised something was missing so I started going back. I didn’t understand everything at first, however slowly but surely God kept putting people in my path that would encourage me further.”
He said it wasn’t long after this that he had a sense that he might be called into ministry.
“The journey has been long and challenging but looking back I see that God has used many of these difficulties to help shape me for His service.”
“I am looking forward to getting to know Toowoomba and working alongside the many great churches that make this city a better place.”
