Biography

Damian has had experience in a variety of employment. He has ministry experience as a missionary in Papua New Guinea 2003-2004, and later in a local congregation in Aberfoyle Park. Currently he is an ordained pastor in the CRC Churches International, and attends The Hills CFC in the southern suburbs. He has experience in VET sector, holding roles at Tabor College as the coordinator of VET Ministry and Theology, and Dean of Students in the CRC College of Ministry.

In his spare time Damian enjoys gardening, hiking, going to the gym, and spending time with family and friends.

Damian enjoys teaching from the New Testament, especially Paul’s letters. He is interested in researching how Paul sought to form Christian identity amongst his first converts. He argues that Paul used several ways to describe how believers ought to perceive themselves and the world around them thought the lens of the crucified messiah. He also believes that the New Testament is best understood by reading it in its original language, Koine Greek, and enjoys teaching it to students and seeing how the New Testament comes alive to them in ways that influence their theology.
