Rev Dr Benji Callen

Minister – Rev Dr Benji Callen
Church Office: 8331 3914

Benji is enjoying the wonderful adventure ride of being married with three boys. While experiencing the joy of studying the majestic world inside the cell as a molecular biologist, he pursued a nagging call to full-time ministry in the Uniting Church. Now he loves seeing people grow with God, which he does mostly as the minister at Burnside City Uniting Church. He has been passionate about Jesus, the church being a place of hope that grows amazing disciples of Christ and helps everyone know the abundant life that Jesus has on offer for everyone.
