PRINCIPAL, HEAD OF CHRISTIAN THOUGHT, NT & GREEK LECTURER
Richard has more than 20 years’ experience teaching Greek, New Testament, church history and preaching. He recently published Reading Biblical Greek for first-year Greek students. Raised in a Christian family, it was at university that Richard realised the importance of Jesus and his gospel. After studying theology and being ordained as an Anglican minister, he pastored a congregation in Sydney’s west for four years. Seeing the value of continued learning, he completed a Master’s degree on 1 Timothy and a doctorate on the emotions in early Christian thought. Subsequent published articles have addressed issues in the New Testament, church history and ministry. Richard’s love of effective preaching led him to serve on Sydney Diocese’s College of Preachers which he chaired for seven years. His greatest passions are his family, teaching the Bible, and caring for students. Richard and his wife Kim attend St Andrew's Anglican Church in South Brisbane, where Richard sometimes preaches. Kim is involved in ministry to university students with AFES and volunteers with the GROW women's conference committee. In his spare time, Richard enjoys playing golf or tennis.
