Diocese of Melbourne, Diocese of Bathurst, Diocese of Ballarat, Diocese of Gippsland, Diocese of Wangaratta



The Victoria Regional Office is located in Heidelberg. Victoria has a large and growing population of six million people, with 1.5 million in regional Victoria. There are many opportunities for the expansion of BCA’s ministry, especially in new housing areas, with youth and young adults, and with immigrant communities.

Adrian Lane

Adrian Lane was appointed as the Victoria Regional Officer in February 2013. Adrian knows the Australian church and regional Victoria well. Before being appointed as Regional Officer, he was a Senior Lecturer at Ridley College in Melbourne for 22 years, where he trained ministers for service in regional Victoria. Adrian served on Provincial Council, and has led preaching workshops and evangelistic missions to a wide range of regional centres. Adrian has a real heart for rural Australia and regional Victoria in particular, as his family come from Warrnambool, Maryborough, Rupanyup and Rainbow, in the Wimmera.

Praise God for so many good opportunities this Centenary year for Adrian to speak about the Society’s work and vision as it seeks to follow God’s leading.

Pray for an encouraging and helpful time as we look towards the future.
