What is your job role?

My role as the Vice Principal at the Hills Campus of Hillsong College is to oversee the day to day running of the College, the health and well being of our staff and students.

Background

I have been on staff at Hillsong church for over 8 years now, and have been leading within the life of our church in various capacities for over 16 years. I have served in numerous capacities in leadership, having started in the youth ministry for 8 years, overseeing the discipleship journeys of hundreds of young people; all the way through to coming on staff to run our Hills Campus Operations teams across the weekend for 5 years, as well as being a service pastor at Hillsong church for 3.5 years during this time.

Since 2014 I have been involved in training and discipling our student body and leading our staff at the Hills Campus ever since! My passion and experience is in the field of leadership, discipleship, and pastoral ministry, and I believe my tenured involved in leadership, operational and pastoral roles across the life of the church (as well as being a Hillsong College student myself) has really equipped me to raise, equip, empower and release our students to lead and impact in every sphere of life and ministry.

Since coming to College I have gone on to complete a Diploma in Business Management, a Cert Iv in Training and Assessment, a Bachelors Degree in Theology, and am a current student in a Masters program studying a Masters of Business Leadership. 

Relevance

Hillsong College exists to raise, equip, empower and release you know God in a new and fresh way, to discover the God-calling on your life, and to set you up for a life of significance and impact in any and every sphere of life. Our Higher Education courses seek to produce mature disciples of Christ, who are seasoned in the word of God, have a solid grasp of their own Christian worldview, and who are passionate about building the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Testimony

As a result of studying and now working at Hillsong College, I genuinely believe I am a better leader, a more passionate follower of Jesus, a better theologian, a better teacher and better pastor as a result. I remember when I finished College I was put up into management because the company I worked for then were so blown away by the leadership skills I had learned at College and was now putting into practice. I can honestly say doing my degree has helped me to understand the world on a whole new level! I am constantly challenged to continue to grow, see bigger and further ahead, recognise the gold in them.
