Pastoral Staff

Senior Pastors

It’s our absolute privilege to support and lead such a gifted and servant-hearted team of people who serve our Morning & Evening Communities, our Youth, and the various other ministries that the church runs.

We have a deep passion to see the life and love of Jesus Christ irrevocably change the world around us. With 10 years experience in youth & schools work, Bonnie has a passion for discipleship and leadership, and is a gifted communicator. Rob has a passion for teaching scripture and for helping people discover who Jesus is, whether through Alpha or our Storehouse Ministry. Together, we love helping others discover their calling and giftings and believe strongly in the church as God’s primary vehicle to carry the good news to the world.
