Peter Barfoot

Born in Melbourne, Victoria, Peter Barfoot planted a church in Redland City, near Brisbane, in 1978. Peter and Lorraine have been married for 45 years and their four married children all serve the Lord. They have ministered together in Asia, the USA and Europe.
The son of a gifted artist, Peter came to Christ in 1961. During his 13 years in the retail furniture and floor coverings field he managed two stores, and then edited a country newspaper. In 1975 God called him to fulltime ministry, and the family moved to Brisbane. Soon after, he was appointed assistant pastor of what was then Australia’s largest charismatic church. Peter breaks new ground through teaching and preaching God’s word, healing the sick, and writing and publishing.

Cliff York

Cliff was born into a God fearing family in Western Australia toward the end of the 1950's. One of his earliest childhood memories is of his father writing a verse from Ecclesiastes 9:10 into the flyleaf of his first Bible for Sunday School. Cliff's motto in life has been to follow the advise that his father gave him in that verse and to put everything possible into whatever endeavour is placed before him.
Cliff gave his life to the Lord at age 20, and he has been a keen Bible Student for the past 30 years. His ministry has taken him all over Australia, including Lismore on the North Coast of New South Wales during the 1980's and the Central Wheatbelt town of Wongan Hills in Western Australia during the 1990's.
For the past 5 years, Cliff and his wife Nicky, have been very active in the Pine Rivers Worship Centre, creating a safe haven for folk, (many of whom have had previous sad church experiences), to come and find Jesus... sans religion. Cliff is a lay minister, and is surrounded by a strong support group of folk at PRWC who all share his vision for a Church that truly offers HOPE to people who would love to build an authentic relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.

Mark Scull

Mark was brought up in the Christadelphian community and from a young age attended discussions with various other Christian groups. Mark has been a speaker and youth leader in years past and given many public lectures on Bible prophecy and Israel.
Mark and his wife, Rosalind, have been to India on preaching missions and are keen to build links with Christians who hold the same Gospel hope and share our common love of the God of Israel and His coming Kingdom. Mark was born in Bankstown, Sydney, and later lived in Tasmania where he grew up. Mark moved to Brisbane in 1998 and he and his wife run their own business selling cleaning machinery and a contract sweeping service which is well established and growing each year.

Steve Cook

Stephen was raised in a Christian family. Both his parents were dedicated teachers in a thriving Sunday School and his mother was back teaching the Sunday after he was born - he jokes that he joined Sunday School when he was just one week old!  He has been active in ministry from an early age. His main area of ministry is currently helping to build churches in Pakistan where he has traveled several times over recent years.  His primary "grace-gifts" (Rom 12:6-8) are teaching and encouraging.

Stephen's professional background is as a Medical Herbalist and he has had extensive management experience in the natural health products industry. He sees his interests in complementary medicine and healing as being related to his "holistic" view of a person as "body, soul and spirit" (1 Thess 5:23). He is married to Stephanie. They have three daughters and live in Sydney.
