Our Pastors

Greg & Ann have been a team since 1977 when they married in Rockhampton. Greg lived in Toowoomba until he was 19 when a transfer with work took him to Rockhampton. Greg & Ann went to Bible College in Brisbane. While still studying at College, they were involved in planting a church at Samford which became a full time appointment when Greg & Ann graduated in 1981. During this time they were blessed with 3 wonderful children.  In 1987 they moved to Townsville where they led a church into renewal, seeing considerable growth, adding a youth pastor to the staff and establishing an emergency housing accommodation program.

In 1996 Greg was impacted by God through a dream where he was called to plant a church in Fernvale. Fernvale Community Church was birthed with a desire to see transformation and revival impact the area. The family changed again as their oldest daughter married and then more recently with the addition of their first grandchild. Greg is more passionate than ever about seeing a culture of revival in the church, and the church involved in fruitful mission. In December 2010 G.R.O.W. Network of churches (Growing Rural Outreaches Worldwide) was established with a focus on Asia and the Pacific. This has involved Short term Mission Trips into Pacific and Asian nations as well as rural Queensland. Greg and Ann desire to see people equipped and released into ministry in a way which reflects Jesus’ ministry, that of  declaring the Gospel of the Kingdom, healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing lepers and casting out demons. Their prayer is that “His Kingdom come, His will be done on earth as it is in heaven!”
