Grow a Healthy Church
We can partner with you to grow a healthy church
After 30 years of pastoring in our church we are now partnering with pastors to grow healthy churches.
We love bringing
and a love for the church.
While we have academic qualifications our edge is our 30 years of experience in pastoral leadership. We understand the complexities and pressures of pastoring in the 21st century.
We appreciate the highs and lows of pastoral life and we bring this empathy to the table.
Engage us as your consultants and coaches and we will partner with you to grow a healthy church.
What have we done in ministry?
We are credentialed C3 Church ministers with 30 years pastoral leadership experience at C3 Church Hepburn Heights, Western Australia.
We pastored in our church from 1982 – 2012 and built a large, regional, multi-generational, healthy church that has impacted its local community through innovative programs and multiplied itself through church planting both locally and overseas.
Amongst other things we love the fact that our church has planted 6 churches in the last 18 years and has 67% of our adults in connect groups.
We have both led inter-denominational groups, Perth Christian Minister’s Fellowship and Women In Leadership Ministries. We have also ministered extensively throughout Australia and internationally.
Through Christ’s grace we are still on this incredible journey and have transitioned our church to stellar next generation leaders.
From February 2012 our church has sent us out to be specialist ministers in the wider body of Christ.
