Most Revd & Rt Hon David Hope former Archbishop of York
I really do admire the tremendous energy and vigour that are a mark of Paul’s ministry…One of the greatest rewards is to listen as Paul Wallis poses all those difficult questions we might have longed to ask for ourselves. We come away enriched and encouraged to expect great things of God in our own lives.

Parish Council…would like to say thank you, Paul, for all you have done for us; for your guidance and wisdom, for getting us into a position to know each other and be able to work in a collaborative and inclusive way – and for always leading us by example. You have equipped us with the tools needed to operate in a way that is much more effective and considerate, and have brought us to a point where we are ready to work effectively with a new Minister. Again, thank you for everything.
Members of Holy Covenant, Jamison
Paul brings magnificent expository preaching…with wisdom, learning, intellect and humour…enlivening, challenging, refreshing and engaging delivery; bringing Scripture into a modern context; [his] warm pastoral presence [and]…a great ability to wrestle with the deep issues of faith…and communicate the Spirit of Jesus.
Mal Prior – as Chair of the Board of Directors for Unity College Australia
With love and appreciation…we acknowledge our indebtedness to Paul for the wonderful contribution he has made to the life and work of Unity College Australia. We greatly appreciate Paul’s gentle but firm God-ward focus in all his conversations and deliberations. Paul’s students come away wiser and deeper.
Revd. Bill Huff-Johnson – as Anglican Chaplain at the Australian National University / School of Arts – commended Paul
Paul lived out the motto of the University, which is ‘first to know the nature of things’; always initiating ways to dialogue with and ‘accept the other’. He came among us as a writer of books, yet [his] ministry was frequently silent in his being and listening.
The Church Wardens at St Stephen’s Church, Kambah ACT
Paul’s special leadership-ability was most necessary at St Stephen’s Kambah. His work was tireless, empathetic, respectful, supportive and effective. He came when the parish was in the process of recovery from a divisive event. Paul…was able to relate to all parties in the parish. [His] proactive…approach…has been a focus in reuniting members of the community, and under Paul’s guidance the parish has redeveloped into a united and vibrant corporate identity…
Paul inspires confidence in young people, encouraging them to step out in pursuit of their personal goals…[He] has a quiet but affirming leadership style; encouraging others to explore their leadership potential while walking alongside them. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul.
Chris Davies – writer for “The Word” – Canberra
Even weeks after interviewing the Reverend Paul Wallis, his presence still resonates in my mind, the believer’s gentle yet firm aura of goodwill and kindness.
