Pastor Trevor and Lynette Kay have been our Lead Pastors since January 2010.
They have served the Kyabram community in many different capacities and served as Youth Pastors at Living Waters between 1992 – 1995. During 1996 to 2009 they were pastors at New Life Christian Church in Mildura, first as Youth Pastors and then Senior Pastors.
They have a heart for the wider church body and are currently part of the Australian Christian Churches North Central Regional Committee.
Pastor Bruce and Dianne Wallace have been the Assistant Pastors since August 2019. They have been a part of Living Waters since 1992 and have been serving in the church ever since.
Their heart is to see the light and love of Jesus Christ reflected into the world, so that people will have hope and know that there is a God who loves them.
They value a church that teaches and preaches the gospel message under the power and anointing on the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Jim met Jesus in his mid 20s after migrating from God’s southern paradise (New Zealand) in the early 90’s, and he knew that this was who he needed to fill the empty hole inside. He started serving with Teen Challenge, which brought him to Kyabram where he met the other love of his life, Lisa.
Ps Jim served as the Youth leader at Living Waters before becoming assistant pastor to Ps Noel Portwine in the early 2000s. With the blessing and support of Living Waters, he planted the church at Rushworth before being joined there by Ps Peter Guerra a few years later.
Leaving the Rushworth church in the capable hands of Ps Peter and Ps Jasmine, Ps Jim spent another five years with Teen Challenge, primarily as program manager, before God led him out of paid ministry. He now works with perpetrators of domestic violence, mentoring them as they put their lives back together.
Ps Jim has been married to Lisa for over 25 years. They have four sons at various stages of entering adulthood who also serve in church. He definitely calls Australia home, but cannot bring himself to support the green and gold in trans-Tasman sporting events. He and Lisa have a heart for people to experience the incredible love of Jesus and his power to heal from life-controlling problems.
Pastor Chloe Turner has been leading Freedom Youth since 2018. She is local to Kyabram and grew up at Living Waters, taking over the ministry after Graduating High school.
Chloe took on the role of leading the Goulburn Valley region for Australia’s largest Youth movement, Youth Alive, in early 2020.
She studied in 2019 with the Youth Alive Academy, and her heart is to see young people be completely in love with Jesus and live out their God given calling.
Pastor Peter and Jasmine Guerra have been our Location Pastors since January 2020.
They have been married for 10 years, and have 2 daughters, Stephanie and Shayla.
They ran Flame youth for 7 years, and have been the senior Pastors of Rushworth since 2012. Peter and Jasmine have been involved in many ministry in church life including: Youth, Kids, Men’s, Women’s and Music.
They are passionate about Evangelism, living life to the full and developing people into their fullest potential, as well as finding the gold in people.
