Joel van Bentum


Joel van Bentum M.Ed. (Leadership), B.Ed. (Human Movement and Health Education)  

Joel has been an educator for 20 years. During that time, he has worked across three schools and has served as Year and Faculty coordinator, Head of Senior School, Head of College, Principal of a Registered Training Organisation and now Principal at Marrara Christian College. 

Joel believes that our world belongs to God, and that there is not a square inch of this creation that Jesus Christ who is sovereign does not call “mine”. His deep hope is that Marrara Christian College will be a place that reflects this truthiest truth, that the College will seek to form our students’ heads, hearts, and hands to reflect this reality and will develop students so they may take their place in God’s Kingdom as Christ’s co-labourers to grow and cultivate His Kingdom.
