Moore College graduates serve in churches, schools, universities, chaplaincies and theological colleges, across Australia and throughout the world.

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.

In the Tanzanian church most language groups have no complete Scriptures. I came to Moore to be trained well to understand, handle, and live out the Scriptures I hope to communicate to a minority language group with Wycliffe Bible translators. Translation is a detailed, methodical task, but also dynamic and eye-opening.

I’m keen to help others use their language to unlock a grander and richer vision of God and to grasp more deeply what it means to have fullness of life through his Son.

I am now completing pre-field training at Redcliffe College, UK, and seeking prayer and financial partnership to work in Tanzania. Please pray that God will raise up many to continue the vast unfinished task of taking his life-giving word to all nations.

Shaped by faithful Bible teaching from Moore graduates and knowing that gospel preaching is our greatest need, I resigned from pharmacy to invest my life in gospel ministry. Since graduating, Bea and I have been serving at Captivate Presbyterian Church, Epping—a young and small church working and praying hard to bring people to Jesus.

My favourite thing by far has been teaching the Bible each week. What a privilege to put into service what you have learnt and see God work through it. (Who would have thought that Greek and Hebrew would come in handy!)

In strategy development, training young evangelists, sermon preparation, familiar challenges and breaking new ground, Moore has taught me a gospel-centred and theologically grounded practice, equipping me to face the challenges of being the only staff member. It has encouraged me to keep holding out the gospel—the power of salvation.

Andrew graduated from Moore and now works part-time as the Community Pastor at City on a Hill in Melbourne while studying a PhD in biblical hermeneutics.

For Andrew, the scholarly nature of the course, and the impressive library made Moore the obvious choice. The integrated nature of Moore’s program has grounded his teaching and discipleship of others in a rich theological framework and enabled him to think and act strategically in Christian ministry and leadership.

Stephanie graduated from Moore and now oversees the teaching, training, and discipleship of women at City on a Hill, Melbourne. Stephanie chose Moore because of the fine Bible teaching she received from Moore graduates and the rigorous language component.

In preaching, evangelism, discipleship and apologetics, she has found herself increasingly up against strong cross-pressures of secularism. She regularly gives thanks to God for the rigorous disciplines learned at Moore, which has helped her to adapt to unforeseen challenges.

Married to Jess, with two kids, I head up a new church plant at Condell Park. We have been meeting together for about a month and God has already brought people along to hear the gospel and find out more about Jesus.

Moore helped me to know God—and in knowing, to be changed by Him. There are a hundred things you can do as a minister, but only two things you must do—pray and preach the Word. College taught me to rightly handle the living word of God and always put the need to call people to repentance and faith at the heart of everything I do. This Kingdom-minded DNA now shapes the ministries I lead.

I chose Moore because my Minister said I should go. Now I want to encourage others to go as well so that the gospel will go out to the nations.

Born in London and raised in a Christian home, it was at Sydney University that I understood grace as I was taught how to read my Bible well.

I chose Moore because graduates had such clarity and trust in God’s word. Moore is not only about informing but transforming people by God’s word. Learning in community gave me precious relationships that would be a great support in ministry into the future. Moore equipped me for a lifetime of ministry, with deep theological grounding, sensitivity to historical developments, and an understanding of how the Bible impacts life and ministry. It made me a confident and careful reader of God’s word, producing a robust trust in the scriptures and the God who wrote them.

After College, Gemma and I moved to Brisbane to work with AFES, where I equip students to read their Bibles well so that they too can live for Jesus.

Married to Charlotte, with two daughters, I’m working at Church by the Bridge, focusing on integrating new people and youth. The work is immense but I love it. To see people wrestle with sin, delight in the grace of Jesus, and seek to serve others is such a joy.

When I began at Moore I was petrified about the communal living and learning focus. But I came to see that the Bible is meant to be read in community. Communal learning is really what we do every Sunday. Not only did it expose me to different ways of thinking, but it was profoundly pastoral. At College, I discussed God’s Sovereignty with friends struggling to fall pregnant, and the nature of Hell with someone whose loved ones don’t know Jesus.

Libraries and lectures are important, but it is people who make the difference. And Moore College values people.

As a tradesman from South West Sydney, I chose Moore because of its high academic standards, figuring it would push me the hardest, and be the best use of my time. I try to spend my time in ways that bring the greatest degree of profit for Jesus’ name and Kingdom.

Clare and I now head up a Church Plant in the Fairfield area. On 12 Feb 2017 we had our first service in Smithfield Public School, with 70 adults and 30 kids. We have seen 7 people give their lives to Jesus, a number of families join our church, and many more hear the good news for the first time. It has been a privilege to be a part of this incredible team.

I would highly recommend Moore to anyone willing to push hard and sink deep into God’s word with the aim of leading people to Jesus.

As they say in the territory, Jesus is the “big-boss”. As a family, we’ve headed 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.

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

Almost half of those studying at Moore are women, who enjoy a wonderful community life.

Single women students reside at Carillon House on the Newtown campus and all women have the same full range of subject choice as men. In addition, there is a special stream in our Advanced Diploma of Bible, Mission and Ministry devoted to the particular issues surrounding women’s ministry. Women students attend chapel three times a week (as do the men) and one of those is a dedicated women’s chapel. Women students are also members of a chaplaincy group (led by a member of the faculty and a woman co-chaplain) and each year go on mission. Special events for women students are held from time to time.

Many women are part of our community as wives of students. Moorewomen, which organises, amongst other things, a weekly fellowship meeting with a wide range of speakers and a network of weekly Bible study groups, is designed especially for them (though open to all women at College) and provides further opportunity to be knit into the College community and to grow in Christ by learning and serving alongside other women. We are concerned to provide a spiritually rich and rewarding time for all in our community, without burdening those who might already have a heavy load of commitments inside and outside of College.
