In an unusual step, the church decided to ask Andrew’s youngest brother Geoff to take over, after two years of interim care by Rob Allan.

Geoff and his wife Marie (Ngati Porou) planted Grace Church (Te Whare Atawhai) in Gisborne since 2007.

Previously they served in the Grace Presbyterian Church of Christchurch (formerly, Evangelical Presbyterian Church) since 1997.

Theological training

Geoff has completed studies at the University of Auckland, Grace Theological College, Birmingham Theological Seminary (USA), and is currently enrolled at the Christ College (Sydney).
