The College had been rebranded several times in the post-1959 period, formerly Bible College of Queensland, Crossway College; now the Brisbane School of Theology. The most influential Principals were Rev C. Harold Nicholls (1957-1969), and Rev Geoffrey J. Paxton (1971-1976). In Paxton’s case, there was a considerable controversy with a militant Restorationalist doctrine.
