A Note from Our Senior Pastor

No church would be possible without a dedicated and called team of leaders and staff who surround their pastor and congregation with prayer, support and guidance in every area of life. Not to mention a whole lot of hard work.

I am proud of our staff at Sky City Church who ensure that every week we are doing all that we can within our abilities to minister as broadly and effectively as we possibly can to our church family. I am proud of the board of directors who serve and who have committed their time, counsel and wisdom to supporting the vision of Sky and building our church together. The sense of unity we all share in pursuing all that God has in store for Sky is a beautiful thing.

It may be of interest to you to know that all pastoral staff of Sky City Church hold ministry credentials with the Australian Christian Churches (ACC).  ACC is a movement of over 1000 churches, with 3200 pastors and more than 320,000 constituents across Australia and with ministers, partner churches, church planting efforts and missions initiatives spanning across the globe. For the ACC’s full constitution, history, leadership and statement of belief, please visit: www.acc.org.au

Here on this page however is a brief introduction to our team and leaders and I trust that you will have the utmost of confidence in the leadership, governance and standards that we have in place at Sky across every area of church life.
