Preaching in Australia


St. Albans SDA Church, Melbourne, Australia

Late March and the beginning of April 2016 for me were the weeks of my visit to Melbourne, Australia. This was a working visit, with some special time to spend with my grown up children – Tina, Tamara and Andrija, as well as with my brother Mladen and his family. In a way going back to Australia was like going back home. I was invited by the leadership of the St. Albans Seventh-day Adventist Church to join in the celebration of 35 years of the ministry of this church as one of the key speakers, as well as to conduct a special weekend program of four sermons and presentations. At the end I had a privilege to share six sermons, co-officiate one funeral service, and visit with a number of friends. The St. Albans Church welcomed me with love and appreciation. Sixteen years ago and earlier I was the pastor of this church, or more precisely my pastoring of this church took place between 1994 and 1999. Let me at this time share some of the presentations and sermons I shared with the members and friends of the St. Albans SDA Church during the three weeks of my recent visit to Melbourne, Australia. Since the St. Albans SDA Church is predominantly an ethnic church I preached in Croatian, with the English language translation provided by Vlado Stojanovic and Martha Kajfes. The theme of the featured sermon was  “Living the Gospel”. Other sermons are available at YouTube
