Leader Bio:
The Rev David Campbell has been the inducted Senior Minister of the Presbyterian Church of St Andrew’s Canberra since September 2014, having previously been the Minister of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Newcastle NSW for almost 14 years. He is a native of Northern Ireland, where he grew up in a farming community in County Londonderry.

His home church was Tobermore Presbyterian Church where he was licensed for the Christian Ministry in 1982. David felt called to the Presbyterian ministry in his late teens. After graduating with a BA degree at the New University of Ulster in 1979, he studied Divinity at New College, Edinburgh where he graduated with a BD in 1982.

He served his assistantship at Bloomfield Presbyterian Church in Belfast where he was ordained in 1983. In 1985 he was inducted as the Minister of Strean Presbyterian Church in Newtownards in County Down. After serving there for seven years he was appointed as the General Secretary of The Bible Society in Northern Ireland, where he served for over eight years. During this time he also served as the convenor of the World Church Relations Committee of the General Assembly and established bi-lateral relationships between the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and the Presbyterian Church of Australia.

In early 2001 he received a call from St Andrew’s Newcastle and subsequently immigrated with his family. In 2004 he was a Senior Chaplain to the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in NSW and also served for several years on the Social Services Committee and Theological Education Committee of the State Assembly. During his ministry in Newcastle he was actively involved in the ecumenical and community life of the city and was the Chaplain of the Newcastle Business Club for over six years.

Since coming to Canberra in addition to his heavy pastoral workload at St Andrew’s, he is an active member of the Canberra Rotary Club and an affiliate member of the National Press Club. In his spare time he is a passionate supporter of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. He has supported this world famous old club for 50 years and says he deserves a medal for doing so.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Put me to what You will
Lord, I am no longer my own, but Yours. Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will. Let be employed by You or laid aside for You, exalted for You or brought low by You. Let me have all things, let me have nothing, I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am Yours. So be it. Amen.
