Reverend Dr Peter Hobson

Dean of Formation and Dispersed Learning

I did not grow up in a family that went to church every Sunday.  I was made to go to Sunday School though – it was probably the only way mum could get some peace and quiet around the home!!  I guess I always felt it was a form of punishment.  For the life of me, I could never imagine anyone ever volunteering to go to church.  And yet, here I am, a few years down the track working at a theological college, helping to train ministers for the church.  God certainly does have a sense of humour.

I gave my life to Christ as a teenager.  I fell in love with the Bible by reading Ched Myer’s commentary on Mark’s gospel (Binding the Strongman), and I fell in love with theology by reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Cost of Discipleship.  I find the story of God’s love for the world so compelling it has changed my life.  I have worked as a full-time musician and an audio tech; a youth worker and a congregational minister; I have served as a chaplain at high school, at university, and through community care; and I have taught Theology and Biblical Studies.  In 2014, I completed a PhD on hermeneutics, discipleship and narrative theology.

I love listening to live music and watching movies and rugby league (Go the Cowboys!!), and sharing stories about Jesus and the coming Kingdom of God.
