Rev. Orrell Battersby

Orrell, along with his wife Christine, came to Gympie in May 2021.
His brief is to transition the church to a ‘better normal’ in the midst of COVID 19. Orrell’s passion has been planting and developing new Churches, but at this juncture he is looking forward to this new challenge of, what in essence is a replanting of this regional church. 
He has served in three countries on three different Continents and has a Master of Arts degree and a Master of Ministry degree.
Before his decision to study for ministry in his mid-twenties, Orrell’s background was in art and design.
He and Christine have a son, daughter and six (soon to be seven) grandchildren.
