What’s the best thing about being in ministry? Being part of God’s work of sharing Jesus in the church and the community around us, and having a front-row seat in seeing His work in the world.

Andrew Purcell

purcellsWhen did you graduate? 2012

What did you study? Masters of Divinity with a Graduate Diploma in Divinity (MDiv/GradDipDiv)

Who’s in your family? My wife Kerri, and our four kids John, Mark, Timothy & Claire.

What are you doing now? I’m the minister at the Presbyterian Church here in the Callide Valley in Central QLD – we have two preaching centres, Jambin and Biloela.

What’s one thing you learnt at QTC that helps you in your current ministry? QTC actually taught me plenty of things that have helped me in my current ministry, so naming just one isn’t easy!!  Probably the most useful thing I picked up from college, which I use every week would be how to prepare a sermon, and how to look critically at my own sermon before I preach it in our church! (Most of the subjects I studied at college contribute to sermon preparation in one way or another).

What’s the best thing about being in ministry? Serving the Lord and helping others to do the same.
