Pete is thankful that God is merciful. Even though Pete has rebelled against God, he is blown away that Jesus took the punishment for that rebellion. He is even more amazed that he doesn’t have to do anything to earn God’s forgiveness, but simply trusts that Jesus paid the price on the cross. Pete reckons it is a privilege to teach people about Jesus and is passionate about helping people respond to the wonders of God’s grace in Christ. Pete is married to Carly and has thee children.
Karl’s heart has been captured by the love of Jesus, who was prepared to lay His own life down for rebels and ragamuffins like himself. He now labours to help others discover and grow in following this radically gracious God. Karl enjoys spending time with his wife Jenny, his son and daughter, sharing a meal with friends, watching a good movie and playing pretty much any sport.
Matt loves it when things are running smoothly, people are working well together as a team and individuals are using their God given gifts to their full potential. Which is a good thing, because his role for Christ Community it to serve the church by enabling these things to happen.
Ben is passionate about following Jesus authentically and seeing lives transformed by the power of the Good News about Jesus Christ. He’s currently undertaking a two-year traineeship focusing on youth and young adults to test his gifts and suitability for full-time ministry. Ben is married to Corinne and together they seek to connect people and cultivate community around the Gospel.
