2019 Student Leaders
Providing oversight of the Student Leadership Team is co-chair Mairéad Green, a third-year Bachelor of Ministry student at MST. She’s a local girl, calling Ferntree Gully her home, and she attends Christ Church in Dingley. Mairéad’s loves in life include riding her horse, painting and drawing, reading, and coffee. Her other passion is for youth work, and she anticipates ministry in that area after completing her degree. Being organized is a high priority for Mairéad, but she’s quick to note that when she can’t control what’s going on in her life, Proverbs 3:5-6 provides comfort in tough situations.
Co-chairing with Mairéad is Josiah Hilbig, who is in his second year working toward his Bachelor of Theology at MST. Josiah’s many talents find expression in the arts, and he enjoys writing, acting, and directing stage plays, as well as playing the piano and singing. Josiah is from Upwey and attends Upway Community Baptist Church. His hope for the future is to be a full-time minister.
Chris Groszek is serving the MST-Eastern community this year by overseeing worship. He’s in his fourth year of studying part time for his Master of Divinity, and his interests run to music, study, playing with his children, walking in nature, and coffee. Chris is married to Jess, and they have “4.5 children”: Sam, Hannah, and a new bubby due in May/June. The Groszek family attends NewHope Baptist Church, usually attending either the Blackburn or Croydon congregation, while Jess also serves as campus pastor for the Surrey Hills branch.
