Dr Brendan Roach

Dr Brendan Roach

President and Founder

After 30 years of training pastors and leading Australia’s largest Ministry Training Bible College, Dr Brendan Roach founded the Ministry of Axx in 2018. 

Dr Brendan for the last 25 years has actively sought new and more effective ways to train more Pastors for Ministry. In 1999, he launched Australia’s first online Ministry Training platform to make training accessible to people who could not attend College onsite. 

In recent years the rising cost of College based ministry training has excluded 99% of people who feel that have a call of God on their lives to be pastors. Add to that if you are living in parts of the world that suffer under poverty and persecution and receiving high-quality training is almost impossible. 


The Hidden Dilemma

Support the ministry of Dr Brendan Roach to lead and expand the ministry of Axx. 

There are somewhere between 2.5 – 3.5 million untrained Pastors in the world today. Yet at the same time, these untrained pastors are starting churches all around the world. 

So how do we provide high quality training to these pastors who are seeking to make a difference in their communities around the world?
