My name is Tim Ravenhall and I’m married to Susan (photo). We have three delightful children. It’s been a while since we’ve lived and breathed the city. But we’re excited to be here after 11 great years in the country. Our first love is the Lord Jesus and his great work of reconciliation at the cross. Personally, faith in Jesus has been the most liberating and transformative event for my life. My wife and I trained at Moore Theological College Sydney where we acquired a Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Divinity respectively. I then studied a further 2 years part-time at Christ College Burwood for a Diploma of Ministry within the Presbyterian Church and was ordained in 2007. Newcastle is a wonderful place and we long for St Andrew’s (Civic Park) and for St John’s (Mayfield) to be a marvellous blessing for the city and suburb as we seek to engage people with the great news of a real, deep, personal experience of knowing the Living God.
