About our main speaker

Main speaker: Gary Millar

Gary will give 2 talks on ‘Genesis Women’.

Gary has been the Principal of the Queensland Theological college (QTC) since 2012.  After studying chemistry in his home city of Belfast, Gary moved to Aberdeen in Scotland to study theology, before completing a D.Phil at Oxford on Deuteronomy (published as Now Choose Life in the NSBT series).  Gary worked as a pastor for the next 17 years in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and was involved in both church revitalization and church planting, before moving to Brisbane to lead the team at QTC. Gary teaches Old Testament, Biblical Theology and Preaching, and preaches most weeks in college chapel. In 2013, along with Phil Campbell, Gary wrote Saving Eutychus, a book on preaching. He has published various chapters and articles, such as Jesus Betrayed and Crucified in His Mission: Jesus in the Gospel of Luke (eds. D.A. Carson & K. Nielsen), the addresses from the 2013 Gospel Coalition conference. He has also contributed to the ESV Men’s Devotional Bible and has recently completed  a “Biblical Theology of Prayer’”, a forthcoming volume to be published in IVP’s NSBT series.  He is currently working on a major commentary on 1 & 2 Kings. Gary travels widely throughout Australia and beyond, seeking to encourage local churches. Gary is married to Fiona, and they have three daughters, Lucy, Sophie and Rebekah.

(ix) Falling in love with this world (Peter Jensen)

What will this talk be about? We have entered a period of deep ignorance about the Bible and the invention of a new morality based on egalitarianism. It is very tempting for Christians to embrace this. But we have a better story which impacts not least on the relations between men and women.  Let’s hold it, model it and promote it.

Level of talk: Popular

Peter Jensen teaches Christian Doctrine and its application to our world. He has been Principal of Moore College and Archbishop of Sydney. He is now the General Secretary of the world-wide Anglican movement for the defence of the gospel, called GAFCON.
