Oliver Crosato

Student Minister 

I grew up in Crows Nest, not far from Toowoomba where I attended high school. I attended a local church with my family and though I don't think I could have explained what it meant, I considered myself a Christian from a young age. In my early teenage years I found a little book on the evidence for Jesus' resurrection and the trustworthiness of the Bible and from the start I was captivated.

I moved to Brisbane to study Biochemistry at QUT, where I met my wife Taylah. While at uni I joined St Lucia Bible Church which, alongside a uni christian group, pushed me to mature as a Christian. I worked as a Research Assistant in one of QUT's research lab for two years before deciding to transition into a ministry apprenticeship. 

I loved my time working at SLBC, and so in 2018 Taylah and I decided to set aside the next few years to get trained for a lifetime of working in the church. I am currently studying at Queensland Theological College.

I love getting to spend time seeking to understand the Christian message more deeply, and helping others to do the same. I'm constantly surprised by how broad and how powerful the effects of Jesus life, death and resurrection are in all of our lives.
