Minister Michael Earl
Rev Michael Earl, BA (hons), MDiv, is the minister at Bowral/Kangaloon Uniting Church.
Michael and his family, Lucy his wife, Thomas, Joseph, Rosalie and Elise, moved to the Southern Highlands from a previous appointment at Wesley Mission in the heart of the CBD of Sydney.
The country life is quite a change! Michael finished his seminary training at United Theological College in 2007 and was ordained a Minister of the Word in February, 2009 after completing the mandatory Intern Year. He was at WM for 4 years before making the trip down the Hume Highway to Bowral.
Michael comes from the evangelical/Reformed tradition of the church and is passionate about building strong and loving communities of faith gathered around the living Word, Jesus Christ. Other interests in music, sport, reading and writing keep Michael busy as do the four lively children!
Lucy has a degree in social science and has worked in the field of International Aid and Development prior to starting a family. She hopes to return to that area of work one day and has recently completed her Masters of International and Community Development.
