In each talk, Gary will look closely at how the text presents the men and women in these narratives, and then, in the second part, Gary and Fiona will work through how to apply the text to men and women today together in a conversational and interactive way.
About Gary and Fiona
Gary has been married to Fiona for 28 years, and together, they have three teenage daughters: Lucy (19), Sophie (18) and Rebekah (14). Born in Northern Ireland, Gary lived in Scotland, England and the Republic of Ireland before moving to Brisbane, but still hasn’t lost his accent. In his role as Principal of Queensland Theological College, he gets to do three things that he loves deeply: preach weekly in college chapel, teach the gospel from the Old Testament, and equip men and women for a lifetime of gospel ministry. He also has had the opportunity to write books on Deuteronomy, Kings, Prayer, Preaching and the basics of the Christian Life. He is a Council Member of The Gospel Coalition Australia, and part of Ann Street Presbyterian Church in Brisbane. He is a slightly obsessive (slow) runner and a bad golfer.
Fiona was born in the high Andes of Peru (of Scottish missionary parents) and now lives in the leafy suburb of Ashgrove with her husband Gary, and their three teenage daughters. Passionate about sharing Jesus with women and children, Fiona delights in opening up the Bible with groups of women, and having God challenge and shape her in the process. After 18 roller-coaster years of ministry in Presbyterian Churches in Ireland, Fiona now serves Jesus at Queensland Theological College and in her local church—with friends who don’t yet know Jesus and with pastor’s wives. Fiona is also finishing a Masters in Advanced Educational Learning with UCL, and revels in waking up each day in this land of blue skies and bold colours.
