Young Adults Director, North New South Wales Conference Blair
Lemke is the Young Adults Director for the North New South Wales Conference and is passionate about introducing young people to the life-changing truths of Scripture and engaging them in the life and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He graduated from Avondale College in 2013 with a degree in Teaching and Chaplaincy and served for 5 years in these fields at Tweed Valley Adventist College before taking up his current role.
Blair has a vision of an army of young people who are experiencing radical, authentic, true godliness, daily reigning Christ as both Lord and Saviour in their lives and leading the way in a corporate revival, and believes that a revival of this nature can only be expected when prayer is taken seriously. .
