Adam Chessum

Adam is married to Kay Ling and have an eight-year old son, Elijah. He and his family have had the joy of being part of the Southside community since 2015.

Adam grew up in north east Victoria and heard about Jesus when he occasionally went to church and listened to the Bible being read. He gradually came to understand the grace of God and his deep need to trust in Jesus at the age of nineteen.

Adam is a graduate of Moore Theological College in Sydney, as well as a graduate from the Australian National University (ANU) with a Visual Arts degree in painting. He has had many years of ministry experience explaining the good news of Jesus to people from different cultures.

Adam’s role as Student Pastor at Southside involves getting alongside university students (both domestic and international) and helping them to grow and mature in their understanding of Jesus Christ. He also coordinates our Fellowship Groups, which are a vital aspect of our church life.
