Elliot Ku - Pastor, GracePoint
Elliot grew up in a Christian home and enjoyed the privileges of being discipled as a child of God from a young age. However, the great truths and glories of the Gospel only really struck home for him in the final years of high school, and it was from then that he felt led to serve God as a pastor. From there, he went on to complete a B.A in History and B.Ed in Secondary Education at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), and he then served as a Ministry Intern at South West Evangelical Church before heading off to theological college. Elliot is passionate about discipling and training young adults. As such, during his years at theological college, Elliot helped to lead a group of university students at GracePoint which is now known as Allelous Community Group (ACG), and he hopes that the ministry will be a catalyst to see more young men and women better equipped and trained to be Christ's witnesses in an ever-changing world. Elliot has since then completed his M.Div at Christ College, and he is currently undertaking some further studies (MA in Theology) to be better equipped to handle and teach God's Word. Elliot's better half and wife Sherilyn is also completing some theological studies while working as a Piano Tutor at MLC School Sydney, and together they love showing and speaking about the joys of following Jesus Christ.
