Our Staff

Senior Minister – Nathan Sandon

          

Guess which photo is the real me – Nathan is amazed that someone would bother giving their life for his and it’s changed his life. He’s lucky to be married to Melinda; he has 2 beautiful children but there’s 3 kids in the family. Son- Noah (10), and two daughters- Elke (8) and Anya (1). As a young growing family we’re stoked to be new to the area of the Northern Illawarra and are enjoying being a part of the community at Thirroul Primary Public School. Nathan leads the church and oversees the great staff team that we’re blessed with. He loves to get outdoors and is especially enjoying the wonders of God’s good creation in surfing at the beach and biking on the escarpment. After 15 years working in the church I love being reminded on a daily basis that you don’y have to be perfect, or have everything sorted out, before you’re allowed to come along- Whether you’re new to the area or homegrown, whether you’re a believer or not I’d love to meet you.
