Gary Eastment

Position: Senior Minister and Chaplain to the University | AFES Campus Pastor

As Chaplain, Gary has overall responsibility for St Mark’s ministries, with a focus on student work and evangelism. He is mostly surprised that people actually pay him to have the honour of fulfilling this role. He has a distant science background, but has more recently led a church in Sydney and worked as a school chaplain.

Gary is a self-confessed bike-nerd (mountain biking), a proud coffee snob and even prouder husband to Rebecca and father of three kids.

Gary loves being a christian. He believes that being a christian makes the most sense of life and brings joy, hope and purpose not found anywhere but Him.
