Jordan Thyer

Youth Worker

jtJordan spent the first 5 years life growing up in the Kimberly town Derby before moving to the Perth hills. Jordan spent most of his time outdoors “running a muck” with his 3 brothers and playing sports with mates.

During his time at Curtin University studying Chemical Engineering Jordan was one of only a few Christians in a year group of around 120 students. This forced him to seriously consider why he (or anyone) should commit to being a Christian and if Christianity was intellectually credible. This wasn’t merely an intellectual exercise as Jordan recognized that being a Christian would have big implications for all of life. This led to a lot of reading and research; the outcome of which was that Christianity was not only intellectually credible but gave compelling answers to the deeper questions of life.

Graduating in 2010 Jordan worked as a Process Engineer before moving to the UK where he completed a course in Theology and Apologetics at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA). This was followed by ministry training with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries teaching apologetics in Hong Kong.

Returning to Perth Jordan is studying a Masters in Divinity at Trinity Theological College while working for Mundaring Church of Christ as a youth worker. His goal is to know Jesus (John 17:3) as the one full of grace and truth (John 1:14), and make him known which he considers both a great privilege and responsibility.
