Big Camp 2018 Justin Lawman

After graduating from Caloundra High School in 1987, Justin worked for a civil engineering company and by age 19 had become their youngest construction foreman. It was in this work environment that Justin found he had to make a stand for his faith, which ultimately led to his conversion. Justin left this job and began studying theology at Avondale College in 1993. During college, Justin served as an elder at Toronto Church.

Called to work in the North New South Wales Conference in January 1997, Justin worked as associate pastor in Coffs Harbour and Dorrigo churches for 12 months. The family was then called to pastor Grafton and Maclean churches, where Justin was ordained in the year 2000. The next four years were spent working in the Port Macquarie Church, as well as caring for Telegraph Point and Camden Haven churches for one year each. During this time, Justin also served on the conference’s Executive Committee and the Education Committee.

Justin accepted a call to the Southern California Conference in December 2004, where he pastored the Community Adventist Fellowship for three years. There he ran large evangelistic programs overseas and hosted a weekly radio program on Los Angeles radio station KKLA.

For the next four years, Justin worked as Evangelism Department coordinator for the NNSW Conference; running and coordinating evangelistic programs, training events, church planting and Natural Church Development. In 2011 Justin was asked to be President of the NNSW Conference and in 2017 he accepted a call to serve as the Senior Pastor of the Greater Canberra district.
