We welcomed Rev Rodney (Rod) Fisher as Minister of the Word at The Gap Uniting Church on 1st April 2016. Rod is 39 years old, is married to Jen and they have two sons, Tom and Will. Rod grew up within the Uniting Church and has been involved in many different aspects. Rod’s initial study was in Science and then Education which lead to teaching for 10 years across two schools. In 2006 Rod completed a period of discernment which lead to his study of Theology and his placement at Bulimba Uniting Church. During his time at Bulimba, Rod has grown, encouraged and focused the congregation as they have worked together. Rod is enthusiastic about encouraging, equipping and empowering people to discover what it means to ‘be the church’, and how to respond to Jesus’ call to “follow me”.
