Pastoral Staff

Lead Pastor

I was born and raised in Port Elizabeth, studied at UPE and started my working career at First National Bank. It was during my varsity studies that I started to feel God’s call on my life. While at the bank I began to prepare for ministry, first by correspondence and then moving to Cape Town to finish my theology degree. It was there I met Kim and we were married in 1997.  From 2002 I have had the privilege of pastoring Lighthouse Family Church, which has been an exciting journey in itself. I love seeing the Kingdom of God at work, in it’s many forms, and seeing believers come to maturity in Christ. When I’m not involved in ministry, you may find me in the kitchen preparing some Asian dishes, or painting a seascape in oils, I am also a long suffering, now fulfilled Liverpool FC supporter.

Associate Pastor

I am husband to Debbie and father to Anthony, Jodie and Sarah. It’s been an adventure to watch how God has been with us through life and has led us all towards following him in our own unique ways. 

I get to lead the community group ministry, preach, and contribute in several other pastoral activities. Debbie and I have a passion to build and support marriages, and we dream of a multi-cultural church and society where honour and respect reign in deference to Jesus.

I love our church for the way we pursue God in the fulness of his Spirit, and the way we’re never too far from a good laugh.

Children's Pastor

I grew up in the leafy suburb of Pinelands, Cape Town.  After school I studied beauty therapy.  In 1995 I met Trevor and after we married in 1997, I moved to Port Elizabeth.  I have always had a passion for children and have taught Children’s Church since I was 16. After completing my Educare training, I became a preschool teacher in 2007.  In 2015, God opened the door for me to run the Children’s Church here at Lighthouse full time.  I  love seeing the  light come on in the eyes of children as they learn about God.  I am passionate about God’s people being set free from bondage as they discover His truth about who He is and who they are.  I desire for women to see their identity as God does.

In my spare time, I enjoy handwork, puzzles and reading; and I’m a bit of a reality TV follower.

Youth Pastor

I was born and raised in Port Elizabeth. I attended St Marks Community School for high school, matriculating in 2012. While studying my music degree at Nelson Mandela University, I began pursuing a calling to full-time ministry. I graduated from NMU in 2018 and began studying theology and working at Lighthouse Family Church. I love youth ministry because it allows me to have a front-row seat at seeing young people step into their identity as His beloved. In my downtime, I enjoy drinking coffee and spending quality time with the people I love. Best of all, I get to do all of this with my amazing wife, Kelly.
