John is married to Josie and they have three children, Joshua, Faith, and Ella. Originally from New Zealand, John has served as pastor at Bellbowrie Community Church since 2013. John considers that being a Christian is ultimately about entering into a real, personal, intimate, relationship with God. We were created to have this relationship, and only in it can we find genuine and lasting joy, contentment, and fulfillment in life. As a pastor then, John desires to see people both come into this relationship, and then also to see people grow closer and deeper with God, so that they authentically experience the inexpressible joy of knowing Him personally.
Youth & Childrens Pastor
Doug is married to Crystal and they have three boys ranging in age from Primary School through to High School. Doug started attending Bellbowrie Community Church in 2009, and in that time has been involved in many of the church’s various activities and ministries. Over this period God has increasingly challenged Doug to “take up his cross and follow me.” Doug is currently studying a Diploma of Ministry while working four days a week in youth and children’s ministries at Bellbowrie. Doug is excited to see people come to a deeper understanding of Jesus, and to see children and young people develop into all God has made them to be.
