About Allan
  • Education: My primary theological education took place at the Reformed Theological College in Geelong Australia. It was a five year full time Bachelor of Divinity. I have almost completed a Master of Arts in Theology through the Australian College of Theology. I also have a Graduate Certificate in Professional Management.
  • Experience: I have been in full time ministry for 20 years.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Thanks for being willing to have a look. It is humbling to know that sermons which God has graciously allowed me to write are being used all over the world. If you do end up preaching them please pray that the Spirit will use the sermons to transform and convict those to whom you speak.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Many of them do. When I preach I don’t just preach at the congregation but I also preach to myself. Having said that the sermon series which I did on the 12 disciples had a large impact on my personal thoughts about the purposes of the church and my place in it.
  • Family: I have been married for 25 years and I have three daughters who are 25, 24 and 21, and on son-in-law. My wife has been a constant support to my ministry and I am so thankful to the Lord for providing her in my life.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They really enjoy them.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She believes I am the best preacher she has ever heard.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep it simple and focus on the Word.
  • Books that have had an impact: I read all the time and there are many books which have had an impact. Indeed I have found that you can be impacted from the most unlikely sources.
  • Hobbies: I have a dream to build an n-scale model railway loosely based on the New South Wales (Australia) railway system.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: What I always say; "Jesus is the only way to eternal life".
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I often use the phrase "brothers and sisters" which I am addressing the congregation. However, one time, it came out as "brothers and sinners".
  • What I want on my tombstone: He let Jesus make the difference
