David is married to the beautiful Tammy and has two awesome children. They have been at EFCA for the past 9 years and has been involved in youth ministry, but has taken on the role of serving the adults.
David grew up in a home where he never went to church. He thought that Christians were a bunch of hypocrites. On one weekend when he was about 7 years old he stayed at his grandparents place who were devoted Christians. They took him to church and was the worse experience ever. Boring hymns, people dressed in suits, and a preacher that he couldn’t understand. He vowed never to go back to that church ever again. Years past through high school and uni, until his close cousin invited him to a lunch where someone was going to share about Jesus. He didn’t want to go but went just to please her. It was good food and people were friendly but that was the extent of it all. A month later that same cousin invited him to church- the same church that he vowed never to go to again! But by God’s grace he went along to the evening service and was blown away by the fact that people wore normal clothes, sang songs that were contemporary, hearing the Word of God that was understandable, and the people were warm and embracing. He kept going along and several months later he understood from reading the Bible what Jesus had done by dying for him. That was more than 20 years ago. Praise be to God.
It’ll be awesome to have you along to our church to meet you in person.

Will is currently a student a Moore Theological College in Newtown and just finished 1st year. Prior to this, he worked for AFES as an apprentice, serving alongside Christian Union at Macquarie University. He began going to a church in high school, but didn’t understand what being a Christian really meant. It wasn’t until late high school that he realised how he had ignored and rejected God; from that point onwards, he began to take his relationship with God more seriously, particularly by reading his Bible more regularly.
Will believes that Jesus answers many of the big questions most people have; questions about identity, purpose, and eternity. For those reasons, and more, he thinks it’s super important that people get to read about Jesus from the Bible, see his claims about his identity and purpose, and to make an informed decision about whether or not they’re willing to trust those claims.
