About Fanning the Flame


Graham and Andrea Sercombe

Graham and Andrea Sercombe

The concept behind Fanning the Flame and the Focus on Red Programme arose out of the passion of Graham Sercombe. Graham has been a pastor and evangelist for the past 30 years, preaching and teaching extensively across Australia and the South Pacific. He has a great passion for God and for evangelism.

Graham desires to help equip Churches to effectively communicate the gospel of Christ to the unchurched.  He is a gifted communicator and God has used him to inspire and encourage Churches of all denominations. God has used him as an evangelist to help non Christians to commit their lives to Christ.

Graham is committed to working alongside Pastors and Churches to reach people with the gospel. He is passionate about mentoring, training and raising up young evangelists. He has developed the Focus on Red Programme which is at the forefront of seeking a way to develop Christians through their Renewal, equipping them for Evangelism and to be Disciples in their own community.

Graham, Andrea and Family

“I have journeyed periodically with Graham for over twenty years in three churches I have been privileged to pastor. His ministry has always been challenging, inspiring and productive. He is a gifted communicator whom God has chosen to use to great effect in changing lives for eternity.”  Paul Holden – Noosa Baptist Church

“The blessing of Graham’s ministry wasn’t as much found in the Focus on RED. program as it was in its application of the biblical truths it contained to our everyday lives. I highly commend this to you.”  Jeff Baills – Warwick Baptist Church

Our Outback Church was greatly blessed, encouraged and motivated by Graham’s ministry. He has a contagious love for Christ and the lost which rubs off on those round about him and our focus has been more outward ever since. Barry Edwards – Longreach Baptist Church

Graham is an evangelist with a pastor’s heart. I only wish there were more like him to raise up future generations with a heart for evangelism and prayer. Doug Drinnon – Chairman and Director of Southern Cross Institute

Graham has preached the Gospel in both city and country churches were I have served, resulting in much blessing…In a day when it is easy to “sugar-coat” the Gospel, I believe Graham has a God-given message that needs to be heard.  Murray Lean – Senior Pastor of City North Baptist Church
