Our People

Rev’d Chris and Rev’d Lynda Johnson

Rector and Associate
E-mail Rev’d Chris and Rev’d Lynda Johnson

Revs Chris and Lynda joined us in July 2020 as our Senior Minister and Associate. They have over 3 decades of ministry experience in the Anglican Church of Southern Queensland following study at Ridley College in Melbourne. They have ministered in Kenmore, Moggill, Zillmere, North Pine and Gold Coast North. Chris grew up in Brisbane, and initially completed a Bachelor of Business before moving south to study theology. Lynda grew up in Wollongong and moved to Sydney in her 20s. She then also chose to study theology at Ridley College where they met. They married in 1986, have three married children and a growing tribe of grandchildren which bring them much delight.

Both Chris and Lynda are passionate about seeing disciples growing to maturity and making more disciples. Seeing the body of Christ gathered for worship, equipping and empowering people to use their God-given gifts, and helping others see that Jesus is the rescuer we all need, is what drives them to get up each morning.

They both love a good coffee and beautiful hinterland and coastal walks.

The Rev’d Gary McClellan

Community Chaplain, St Andrew's College

It is such a privilege to live and work in this beautiful part of God’s world. My passion is to help people discover Jesus Christ and grow in their knowledge and love of Him. In January 2017 my family relocated from Melbourne, where I worked as an Anglican Minister in a large church in the south-eastern suburbs for 13 years. Prior to Melbourne we lived in Sydney, where I worked in the construction industry before retraining and working in full time Christian ministry, specifically with youth. My beautiful wife, Bek, is a physiotherapist and together we have two terrific, school-age daughters: Jazlyn and Indi. I love camping and 4-wheel driving, the beach, good food, meeting new people, and spending time with family and friends. I am excited be the Community Chaplain at St Andrew’s Anglican College, working in partnership with the Anglican Church of Noosa, and look forward to meeting you soon.
