Greg Goswell

Academic Dean, Lecturer in Hebrew & Old Testament

Greg is the Academic Dean and a lecturer in Old Testament. He is also the Chair of the Australian College of Theology (ACT) Research and Research Studies Committee and a member of the ACT Academic Board. Prior to his work with Christ College, Greg spent twenty years ministering in the Middle East, regional Australia and south-west Sydney. He has learned what works and doesn’t work when it comes to  preaching, teaching, caring and leading. He now carries these experiences into the classroom, to equip the next generation of Church leaders. Greg is married to Mignon and they have 4 children. 

Greg, how has your theological education and career shaped you?

“ I am profoundly thankful for every teacher who has helped to make me what I am (present faults and foibles notwithstanding). The dictum, ‘believe everything and believe nothing,’ applies. We should never accept what other people say uncritically, and on the other hand, we need to have a genuine openness to new ideas. As a result, I am remarkably relaxed as to whether or not my own students accept my ideas. I want them to exercise freedom in developing their own theological convictions as to how to understand the Bible and how to apply it to their lives. I am seeking to make disciples of Christ, not clones of Greg Goswell. That said, Christ College honours God’s word and upholds the Reformed faith—which makes it the right context for men and women who want to mature in their thinking and hone ministry skills”.
