His ministry focusses on prayer, preaching, evangelism and pastoral care. His personal life goal is to win 100 men to Christ and disciple them into fully committed followers of Jesus. Ed is married to Jennifer and they have two sons and a daughter. His hobbies are fishing, swimming and DIY around the house.
Jennifer is an MK (missionary kid) who grew up in Zambia (Central Africa) where her parents were missionaries on a remote mission station. Jenny is a registered nurse and currently works in aged care. Her hobbies are gardening and scrap-booking.

Prior to entering pastoral ministry in January 2002, he served for 20 years in the Royal Australia Air Force (RAAF) as a Radio Technician.
Dav joined the pastoral team at MPBC in January of 2006 after completing his BMin studies at Malyon College (Qld). He is currently the Pastor of the recently planted Bellbowrie District Congregation. In addition to this primary role, Dav advocates for school aged and high school graduate young adults attending MPBC up to age 25.
Madeline is from Brisbane, and works fulltime as a Teacher Aide. She has a keen interest in ministry to women, and assists with the running of the Queensland Baptists “Equipping Partners For Ministry” (EPM).
Dav is passionate about the idea of Christians “doing authentic life together” in relationship based cell groups, where the four critical elements of Christian existence (Upwards, Inwards, Outwards, Forwards) are best able to flourish in an intentionally balanced way.
