Our Team

Wal Brown

Senior Minister

Wal (Wallace) and Elinor were married in 1980 and have four children and four grandchildren. Prior to and after marrying Elinor, Wal had been active leading youth ministries in the Ipswich Presbyterian Church. Then Wal, Elinor and family moved to Bell on the Darling Downs where they farmed and Wal served as an elder for 5 years in the Bell Church. Wal was called to full time pastoral ministry and with the support of Elinor has been serving God in this work since 1991. Wal and Elinor first went to Monto for three years, then to Brisbane for four years and Kingaroy for five years. In 2002 Wal was given a call to come to Bundaberg as senior minister of our Church family, taking up the role in January of 2003. Although a farmer since he was a child and loving farming, he answered God’s call, being trained at the Queensland Theological College (QTC) he gladly serves the Lord and His people.
