Michael Hemans

Position: Youth worker and campus ministry assistant 

Michael is our youth worker, which he thinks is amazing that he gets to hang out with young people, play stupid games and tell them about Jesus. He grew up in South America as a missionary kid before moving to Sydney to become a city kid. He then came to Armidale to study Psychology at UNE. He loves to ride motorbikes off road, loves good coffee, loves to play music poorly on whatever instrument comes his way.

But mostly he loves his Lord Jesus. He has seen the destructive nature of sin, and experienced the redemptive power of the gospel, which is why he is so passionate about telling young people about Christ. He loves teaching the bible, and seeing how rich scripture is when you wrestle with it. He aims to live his life by Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me.”
