Rob & Sue
Rob is the Associate Pastor at North Church, where he has served along with his wife Sue since June 2016.
They both have over 20 years’ experience in pastoral ministry in Sydney and NSW South Coast Baptist Churches. Having planted 3 thriving churches in Sydney since 1992 and having also pastored a large established regional Baptist church where the church had a connection with around 50 ministries that reached the local community. Their heart is for people to connect with God, connect with each other and connect with a hurting world. You could say that their DNA is for planting churches. They are excited that part of the mission of North Church is to birth new ministries and look forward to supporting new endeavours in some shape or form in the future.
Rob leads our Connect groups and equips each leader in ways to build, grow and develop healthy followers of Christ in deep and meaningful ways, believing that for the church to grow numerically, it takes the church to grow smaller through connecting in smaller gatherings. Connect groups are a great way to meet the pastoral care needs of members while exploring spiritual gifts and connecting with each other. Rob also helps any newcomers find out what North Church is all about.
Sue has a background in animation, pastoral ministry and leading worship and creative ministries teams. She is currently undertaking a Masters of Art Therapy as a means to be able to help support the wider community through trauma, illness and mental health issues. Sue’s heart beats creatively and longs to see God’s people reaching their full potential, unlocking and unveiling the gifts and call on individual’s lives, empowering people to thrive and grow through creative expression. She leads the Worship Team at North Church which includes, musicians, vocalists, sound and media. A team of people who have a heart for worshipping Jesus and seeing others experience the presence of God in real and tangible ways.
