Simon first discerned a call to ministry when he was in his final years of High School. His heart for unreached peoples and love for flying led to a desire to join Mission Aviation Fellowship. In preparation for this, he completed a Certificate IV in Ministries at MST, and a Bachelor of Aviation (Piloting) at Swinburne Uni. Simon worked as a missionary of Hills Bible Church with MAF, serving Aboriginal communities in the most remote areas of the Northern Territory, from 2017 to mid-2020.
Simon returned to Melbourne with a desire to use his skills and gifts more effectively for the Lord. To better equip himself for ministry, he is in his fourth and final year of a Master of Divinity at Presbyterian Theological College.
Simon has been a member of Hills Bible Church for 10 years and currently serves in a number of ministries, and is now undertaking the 12 month Pastoral Intern development role at HBC.
