Wesley Mission mourns the death of the Rev Dr Gordon Keith Moyes AC
The Superintendent of Wesley Mission is sad to inform all friends of Wesley Mission of the passing of the Rev Dr Gordon Moyes AC on Sunday 5 April 2015. Gordon Moyes served as Superintendent of Wesley Mission from 1979 until 2005.
“The Rev Dr Gordon Moyes AC had a distinguished ministry in Victoria, prior to an outstanding contribution at Wesley Mission from 1979 until 2005,” the Superintendent and CEO of Wesley Mission the Rev Dr Keith Garner said.
“He will be remembered for his contribution in expanding so many distinctive and enduring Wesley Mission services.
“Like those before him, he gave himself untiringly to a media ministry, believing that it was one of the key ways in which the gospel could be shared with the nation.
“He declared evangelism to be the heartbeat of Wesley Mission. However, it was not only in the life of the church that Gordon made a huge contribution, but in the wider community.
“In the field of politics and community engagement, Gordon was at the forefront of his day.
“He entered the New South Wales Legislative Council in 2002, following a resignation. Gordon subsequently stood at the 2003 State Election and was elected in his own right.
“He will be remembered as one strongly committed to Wesley Mission’s Word and deed ministry.
“The whole Wesley Mission family is remembering and praying for Beverley, the children and grandchildren at this time.”
