Dinner Address to the Christian Schools National Policy Forum, 21 May 2012, in the Great Hall, Parliament House Canberra.
Mike Potter is the Principal of Tyndale Christian School, a K-12 school in northern Adelaide. He believes that Christians have been given a compelling message, and that our voice should be heard in the debate about the issues facing our community.
Instead of being characterised as "anti" this or that, we have a message of hope on issues such as poverty, justice, sexuality, immigration, abortion.
In addition to leading his school, Mike is heavily committed to mission. He spent many years in Kenya and now returns regularly with students, staff and community members from Tyndale, supporting a number of Kenyan children's charities.
He is married to Danielle, and they have 5 children, two of whom were adopted from Kenyan orphanages.
