Steve gets on his bike to Tasmania

Steve Terrell with students at Scotch Oakburn College, LauncestonSteve Terrell’s shiny new motorcycle has attracted as much attention as he has in his first few weeks as the Chaplain at Launceston’s Scotch Oakburn College.

Mr Terrell – who took up the post earlier this year and was inducted last month – made mention of his newly acquired bike during a recent sharing session with students and staff.

So impressed was one Year 4 class that they enlisted their teacher to take a photograph of them with Mr Terrell and the bike.

After only a few short weeks in the post Mr Terrell – formerly Presbytery Minister-Mission and Education at Port Phillip East Presbytery – said he was enjoying the new role immensely.

“This chaplaincy has become a ministry with a very clear agenda for me – (to) do whatever I can to enable a generation of students to leave school clear about what difference they can make in creating a world where every person could live life to the full (John 10:10),’’ he said.

Mr Terrell readily admits that chaplaincy was not high on his radar at the time the position became available.

“Coming to Tasmania was not originally on my radar, but the mysteries of the Placements process and the spirit of God have worked their magic again, and here I am.”
