The Speakers

This year we welcome two experienced church pastors as our speakers for the conference


Ray Galea is pastor of the Multicultural Bible Ministry (MBM) Rooty Hill and married to Sandy with three children. He came to Christ in 1980 at age 20 and went from altar boy of the Catholic Church to pastor of the Anglican Church down the road in Rooty Hill. He worked as a marriage and family therapist before entering Moore Theological College and church planted and pastored MBM since leaving college.


Murray Lean has been the Senior Pastor of City North Baptist Church in Brisbane for the past 14 years, having previously served as a rural pastor and part-time rural GP for many years. Between his medical career and pastoral ministry he completed ordination studies at the Baptist College in Queensland. Murray has six young-adult children and a growing number of grandchildren. Sadly, he lost his wife and faithful ministry partner, Debbie, to cancer in 2010. He has a deep love for the local church, with a passion to see it built up through consistent Bible teaching and mobilised effectively for gospel ministry
