Our People

Our experienced teaching and pastoral team come from diverse backgrounds of ministry and missionary work. It's not only their academic expertise that will stretch and deepen your biblical thinking, it's their life experience 'on the field' that brings alive what they teach and share.

The team are committed to providing our students with high-quality support and guidance in their studies, as well as spiritual and personal matters. We encourage fruitful discussions and relationships over meals on-campus, and many of our lecturers also live on or near campus, modelling what they teach in their own lives.

Our lecturers are dedicated to staying at the forefront of their fields through continuing academic research, writing, and speaking. We strive for innovative and contemporary teaching methods that are engaging and relevant to our students. We also welcome experienced visiting lecturers from Australia and abroad.

Our management and service team are a true reflection of the interdenominational nature of SMBC, with a rich diversity of experience and skills. They ensure the smooth day-to-day operations of the college while also supporting our lecturers and students.
