Senior Minister for Wavell Heights Presbyterian Church
For the last 10 years Wavell Heights Presbyterian Church has been guided by this vision – “In prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit, and being guided by the unchanging truth of the Bible, our vision is to be a vibrant, intergenerational, multicultural community where the good news about Jesus Christ drives us into loving relationships, spiritual growth, willing service and clear witness – that the church might grow and God be glorified.”
Wavell Heights (www.wavellpc.org.au) is a growing congregation located in the suburbs on the northside of Brisbane. It has a ministry that is spread across a wide demographic of families, young adults, middle aged and elderly, along with a trend towards a multicultural audience reflecting the population of the area.
Over the past decade, the church has grown both spiritually and numerically from 25 people on a Sunday morning to a congregation that regularly sees attendances of 100+ including children each week. This has come as a result of teaching God’s Word, the fostering of a welcoming community, and ongoing openness towards change so that we might engage people in our community in the context of our contemporary culture.
There is now an opportunity for a new lead minister to shepherd this church for ongoing growth, provide vision for the congregation, along with insightful and practical leadership of its various ministries.

Orange Evangelical Church
We believe that Jesus gave our church its purpose when he commanded his disciples to go and make
disciples. OEC’s mission statement is: ‘Making Disciples of Jesus — God’s people taking God’s
message with God’s help to Orange and beyond’. Every ministry that we undertake is directed toward
the purpose of helping people to believe in and follow Jesus Christ.
The values expressed below are a practical application of the OEC Statement of Belief
We are people gathered by Jesus Christ and united by His Spirit. Jesus is Lord of all and therefore
everything we do is subject to His authority and dependent on His power. Our desire is to see people in
Orange submit to Jesus’ Lordship.
The Bible, God’s word, proclaimed by us and applied by His Spirit is unashamedly at the centre of every
OEC church gathering and ministry. We speak His truth in love, depending on God in prayer to change
and grow us to be more like His Son.
The love of Christ compels us to go in His strength with His Gospel to seek and save the lost and make
disciples. That is, to nurture and grow those He saves to maturity, so that old and young, married and
single would become the people God created them to be, doing the good works He prepared for them to
God’s grace compels us to live thankful and joyful lives of service with a generosity of spirit that reflects
His incredible generosity to us.
Our plans are not an end in themselves but are undertaken in our desire to be faithful fellow workers
with God in the ministry He has given us to do here in Orange and beyond. We are committed to
gathering together weekly so as to spur one-another on to love and good deeds. We do so looking past
the present to that day when a multitude beyond number gather around the Lord in heaven.
Our prayer is that God will use us to add many to that number from the city of Orange, and that God will
use us to encourage fruitful Gospel growth in both the churches of our region and beyond.
History and future challenges
OEC commenced meeting on the 17th September 1995 ministering to approximately 90 people. OEC
was begun by local people as an independent church committed to the Bible as its foundation for what
we believe and how we live.
OEC’s history can be thought of in three stages:
Stage 1—establishing | 1995 – 2005
OEC had a vision for growth, and expanded to three congregations by 1999
Stage 2—building | 2005 – 2020
OEC expanded further to four congregations with multiple ministries currently touching approximately
800 people. OEC is currently building a ministry centre to support its ministries.
Stage 3—transition to future ways of fulfilling our mission | from 2021
From 2021 OEC will transition into a new phase after it moves into its new ministry centre and different
opportunities to do Gospel ministry open up.
