Jacquie Woods, Schools Ministry Staff Worker
Jacquie has always loved working with kids and previously worked as a primary school teacher for 3 years. While teaching students to read and write she was convicted about the essential need for students to learn about the good news of Jesus Christ. So in order to be thoroughly trained and equipped to teach the bible in schools, Jacquie then completed a Bachelor of Divinity at Moore Theological College in Sydney. She is really excited about the many opportunities schools provide to share the gospel with both students and teachers. Jacquie is also a big fan of playing sport, cooking, spending holidays at the beach and drinking good coffee!

Dan Perrott, Schools Ministry Staff Worker
After originally working in the Film & TV Industry, Dan studied at Sydney Missionary and Bible College and went on to serve in church based youth and young adults’ ministries. This gave him heaps of experience over the last ten years teaching in SRE, Primary and High School lunchtime groups, and on Christian camps and youth groups. He loves evangelism, preaching, and discipleship – with those who grew up outside or inside the church/Christian culture. Dan loves Jesus, his wife Anna, daughter Natalia, and the chance to share the Gospel while supporting others doing the same.
