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.

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.
