Our senior leader, Scott is passionate about equipping people not only to understand their faith but to be able to give a reasoned defence of it (apologetics). He is currently in the process of designing courses for this purpose. He is a dynamic preacher whose passion for Jesus is contagious.
Scott has completed a Masters in Ministry, through Harvest Bible College and has a Certificate in Christian Apologetics through Biola University. He is a coach of up-and-coming leaders - encouraging, equipping and preparing them to be released in order to grow the church.
Scott loves skateboarding (makes him feel young - that is until he falls off!) and is a self- confessed coffee-snob who roasts his own coffee...
Andrea is Scott's wife and mother to 5 grown up kids and 3 Grandchildren. Andrea is a tenacious strategist who enriches Lifehouse with brilliant ideas that continue to develop us as a biblically sound and culturally relevant church.
Aside from teaching in a public school, Andrea serves as part of the Oversight and Management teams as well as the Lifehouse music pastor and Children's pastor. She has a post graduate degree in Theology through Harvest Bible College and thrives on seeing people restored - body, mind and spirit.
Andrea loves sunshine, an open fire and gluten free bread without preservatives.
'I am the good shepherd’, Jesus said.
As a community of believers who trust in the Good Shepherd, we know that Jesus alone is the Saviour of all and promises to be our very present help in time of need. Ultimately, our heart is to encourage everyone to seek Jesus, with an expectant heart to hear and receive from him. We also know we are his hands and feet and are called to provide love, prayer, support and encouragement to each other: ‘body ministry.’ Body ministry at Lifehouse is alive and well as we care for each other in a wide variety of practical, emotional and spiritual ways. This all takes place primarily from within our life groups where deeper relationships are formed and great connections are made. Needs are heard, prayed for and supported in this environment. If you are in need of a pastoral visit, please leave details via the 'contact us' bar and we will endeavour to be in contact with you within 48 hours.
