It’s hard to believe that yesterday we celebrated our final day at Planetshakers City Church… 20 years ago, I walked in the back of a youth ministry in Adelaide and encountered God in a way that I had never experienced before. I thank God that a friend from school was bold enough to invite me to hear him speak.. a few weeks later I met the youth pastor, a guy named Russell Evans. I started on the worship team the next week, and Russell and his wife Sam have been my pastors ever since.
We had no idea back then what lay ahead, and look back after 20 years in wonder at the amazing things we have been a part of alongside Russell and Sam. From high school youth ministry to Youth Alive, from the small beginnings of Planetshakers Conference to seeing tens of thousands impacted every year… From starting Planetshakers City Church from zero and seeing it build to the incredible church it now is only 8 short years later, we truly are amazed and incredibly grateful for all that God has graciously allowed us to be part of building.
We are so grateful for all that our pastors, and close friends Russell + Sam have imparted in to our lives. Alex and I would not be who we are without their leadership, love and friendship. We are also incredibly thankful for our friends and family at Planetshakers City Church, our home church for the past 8 years. It has been an honour to serve you and worship with you… we have encountered God and seen Him do amazing things as we’ve met together… we will miss you beyond words, and you will always be ‘home’ to us.
But.. this is just the beginning… we know that what God has in store is greater than anything we’ve yet seen… we look forward to what lies ahead as we move to our new home.. the US of A… Keep us in your prayers!
