How we started

Tribute - Don McFarlane

Founding Pastor, Don McFarlane, passed away on the 1st November 2008, leaving us a wonderful legacy to build on. His leadership qualities were amazing, his love and sacrifice for the church huge, and his integrity in ministry beyond reproach. Pastor Don had the respect of so many people around New Zealand and in other nations. He had the ability to come alongside people of all walks of life and gain their confidence and respect. His preaching was always inspiring and challenging. He was a man of great wisdom and had the ability to look at a problem, no matter how big or complex, and know instinctively the solution. His legacy continues.
