Lead Pastors



We both grew up in coastal suburbs on the East Coast of NSW, Australia. We met at a music and arts festival, fell in love and this year will celebrate 26 amazing years married. We have two incredible kids, Harmony (19) & Eli (17) who both love Jesus and together, as a family we are super excited about planting & building a Jesus-glorifying Church in Sydney's Sutherland Shire.

We have affectionately called Hillsong Australia home for almost two decades. Alongside Ps Brian & Bobbie Houston & a world class team, we are incredibly grateful to have been a part of seeing Hillsong Australia expand into many locations around our Island nation and beyond. With great passion for sharing the love of Jesus with all people, we are heading into a new season of building REVITALISE CHURCH... an Aussie Church with a heart to revitalise people, communities and nations.

Alongside many other great churches,.. we have planted a church on the east side of Sydney’s Sutherland Shire. We also have a deep desire to help strengthen churches and plant churches across our wide brown land...

It’s a step of faith we are confident to leap into, as we firmly believe, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.

We cannot wait to meet you.
With thankful hearts
