SENIOR PASTORS

James and Sally are a young family with two daughters called Jordan and Burley! James and Sally have a huge heart to create a home for the family of God through stirring up vision, authentic care and strong, healthy discipleship.

James grew up searching for answers after a home crisis brought on a form of Tourette’s at the tender age of 4! It led him both to Christ and to a revelation that he was not born to just ‘fit in’ but to stand out. Being the only Australian Pastor with first hand knowledge of this personal challenge, James shares a message of how God can lead you to your purpose through your pain.

James believes the church should be the most vibrant and life-giving environment in the community. He is unashamedly passionate about moving the church from a place of ‘dreams and words’ to ‘goals and actions’.

Sally has spent nearly two decades managing, launching and directing hair salons. It was in the salon that Sally’s pastoral heart was unearthed and activated. Women would often experience the ministry of healing, freedom, and love, with hair just being a bonus. Sally believes that the church is stronger and healthier when men and women are leading together.

Sally is passionate about breaking chains of tradition and seeing men and women operating in the giftings that God has purposed for them both. Sally is most spiritually recharged in worship. This is where she sharpens her prophetic edge to then help lift others to higher levels!
