Rector text

Rev’d Dave McLennan (Rector)

Dave was born in Toowoomba, and after studying political science at the University of Queensland moved to Canberra to work for Defence. Apart from a brief stint with the army (he served on the East Timor border as an infantry soldier in 2000), Dave’s decade in the public service was mostly within the intelligence community. In 2010 he resigned from the public service, commenced theological studies, and was ordained in 2014.

After three years at St John’s (Reid), Dave, Cath and their four children moved to Canberra’s beautiful deep south where they are loving being a part of what God is doing in people’s lives.
