Personal Note —
Greetings! I am Stephen Clark and I have the opportunity to pastor the UCG Box Hill and Tasmanian congregations.
My wife, Cathie, and I have three children who are all young adults in the Church. We have served in various congregations throughout Queensland, Bathurst in New South Wales, Western Australia, Tasmania and here in Victoria. Cathie and I have been in the Church of God all our lives. We are deeply committed to God's way of life and desire to share that with any who are interested.
I have been in the full time ministry since 2002, being called into the ministry after an eclectic work life experience – anything from mushroom farming and being a sales rep, through to Social Work in a non-government organisation after completing my university degree. Cathie is a registered Early Childhood teacher. All of these opportunities have provided a wide range of experience – and ideally wisdom – that has fed directly into this ministry.
We have a responsibility to reflect the example of Jesus in all that we do. He is the Good Shepherd! As His ministry, we are here to serve those whom the Father calls to the body of Christ, and in so doing, bring honour and glory to Him.
