He is a lecturer at LIFE Bible College in Westmead and presently serves as its Principal. Rudy holds a Diploma in Theology and has completed five consultations at the Jack W Hayford School of Pastoral Nurture (SPN) at Kings Seminary in Los Angeles.
As a devoted student of the Word, he leads the congregation in faithful study and application of the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ. He is constantly learning the delicate balance of truth and grace and champions an approach to the world through the love of God and by the power of His Spirit. His ministry life aspiration is to shepherd God’s people according to the integrity of his heart and to guide them by the skilfulness of his hands (Psalm 78:72).
