About Us

The Porters
Chris and Gillian are on the move! After grow­ing up in Canberra we both made the long treck across coun­try to study in Adelaide for uni­ver­si­ty, but after 8 years in SA, we are mak­ing the move back to the east coast to live in Melbourne so we can study at Ridley Theological College. We are hop­ing to be equipped for a life­time of Christian min­istry and are expect­ing that at some point in the next few years we will be mak­ing an even big­ger move as we head towards over­seas mis­sion work, God willing.

I’m a 20 something Christian girl who is mar­ried to a great guy called Chris! I spend most of my time work­ing in the world of health care as a junior doc­tor but also love to read blogs, dream about the future and drink cof­fee. You might also find me with an embroi­dery nee­dle in my hand or on the tread­mill at the gym, but most­ly I’m just try­ing to fig­ure out what it means to be me! In 2012 I will be study­ing a Graduate Diploma of Divinity at Ridley College in Melbourne and also doing some locum med­ical work to pay the bills!

In his 20’s, smart, fun­ny, gor­geous, loves God and his wifey. Has a work back­ground in soft­ware engi­neer­ing and psy­chol­o­gy but also loves pho­tog­ra­phy, mechan­ics, rac­ing, for­mu­la 1, bak­ing bread, rid­ing down­hill moun­tain bikes and fab­ri­ca­tion (all of which he excels at). In 2012 he will be going into 2nd year of the Masters of Divinity at Ridley College where he will get to put his Greek into prac­tice and learn Hebrew along with all sorts of oth­er things to do with God and the bible.
