Life At Moore

Your time at Moore College will give you lifelong memories of good times and build relationships with partners in ministry.

Community Life

Community allows students to be given strong support academically, socially and spiritually.

Growing in the knowledge of God is more than simply learning and knowing ‘stuff’. It is about being shaped and transformed, growing in Christ-likeness, in fellowship with others. We are committed to fostering loving personal relationships, developed through regular meeting centred on prayer and hearing God’s word, as the proper context for learning about God and his purposes.

I am originally from Northern Ireland but came to Australia to study at Moore College. After college I returned to the UK to the University of Durham to complete a PhD in New Testament studies. I joined the faculty in January 2014 after several years teaching New Testament at Melbourne School of Theology. I have worked for churches in London and Sydney and had 2 years missionary experience in Romania. It is a real privilege to work at Moore College and I have enjoyed the fellowship with my colleagues and the experience of serving our students.

I grew up in Perth and after a few years teaching maths in country wa headed east to be further equipped to teach people about Jesus. That has involved 2 years as a ministry apprentice at UNSW and now almost 4 years at college.

I have been really thankful for my time at Moore. I’m thankful for the opportunity to think, learn and dwell deeply on the word of God. I’m thankful for lecturers who work hard for us, and for assignments that stretch me in my thinking (even though they can be painful at the time). I’m thankful for the privilege of studying alongside others who know and love the Lord Jesus and want to see him proclaimed.

I wish that I had done this theological study as a much younger person. It has equipped me in a way that I had not been previously for church ministry. I’ve been so blessed by it that I don’t think I’ll stop once I’ve finished this course. I particularly appreciated the overview of Scriptures, and the rationale for that. Then when we’ve gone to study the individual books, they have become a lot more meaningful. I feel privileged to be able to access this level of theological training, especially in the country. We’re a small country church but I know it’s impacted me in terms of my confidence. My knowledge of Scripture, being able to use Scripture to help others, being able to turn out a passage because I know it so much better now. It has gotten me focused in my church work – it makes me much more targeted in where I put my energy, especially
the verbal contribution I might make in conversations. I now truly understand the importance of my Christian service, it’s become much more meaningful than it might otherwise have been.

As they say in the territory, Jesus is the “big-boss”. As a family, we are heading to the Northern Territory to serve among indigenous Australians.

Before Lisa and I met each other, god had been preparing us in different ways for this task. I had seen god save aboriginal teenagers in Armidale. Lisa had seen god at work through missionaries in the northern territory on a mission awareness trip, and a teaching prac at Ngukurr. We are both trained as primary teachers but wanted to get some experience in christian ministry before heading “up north”. After two years of a ministry apprenticeship in Armidale, we arrived at Moore wanting to learn to think theologically as we share the news of jesus with people.

I like to tell people I went to bible college because I lost an argument.

The story isn’t entirely apocryphal: a new acquaintance had challenged me with the question “should all christians at least consider the possibility of vocational ministry?” and I had gone away determined to make a watertight case for why my calling lay squarely in the secular workforce.

After a little reading and reflection, I was confident I could give a sound biblical justification for Christians finding their place of ‘kingdom service’ outside the church, the chaplaincy office or the mission organisation. Yet something else happened to me in that process—something that eluded keyword-searches and flowcharts and neat thematic summaries.

And so as prayers and conversations and oddly timed nudges began to fall into place around each other, I felt a growing conviction and excitement that God might in fact have a different job lined up for me than the ostensibly ‘perfect’ one I had just thrown myself into. Eighteen months later I was taking my seat in the Knox Lecture Theatre alongside the fellow travellers with whom I would share the exhilarating—and, in many respects, all too fleeting— adventure of theological study and ministry preparation over the next four years.

Mission

Each year, Moore College sends teams of students and faculty out from college to partner with churches in Sydney, Australia and overseas to run missions that proclaim Jesus.

Please pray for the students, faculty, chaplains and local churches as they prepare for missions. Each year the churches we partner with change, keep up to date with who we are partnering with now.

Women at Moore

There are a large number of women studying at Moore, who enjoy a wonderful community life.

We are keen for everyone’s time at Moore College to be spiritually rich and rewarding as they grow to know and love God better and prepare to serve him in Sydney and beyond. Through Moorewomen, we are particularly concerned to provide opportunities for student wives to be knit into our community and to provide a range of opportunities for them to grow in Christ with other women.
