Rev. Rod Fisher began as Minister of the Word at The Gap Uniting Church on 1st April 2016.
Rod grew up in the Uniting Church and had opportunities to be involved and mentored in leadership in various ways from his teenage years, particularly in music and worship and with young people. He is a bit of a sci-fi nerd, studied Science and Education at uni, and worked as a High School teacher for 11 years before following the call of God into full time ministry.
Rod still loves teaching and learning, and is enthusiastic about encouraging, equipping and empowering people to discover what it means to ‘be the church’, what it means to respond to Jesus’ call to “follow me”, and what it means to participate with God’s mission in our world today.
Rod is married to Jen and they have two teenage sons, William and Thomas.
