We have a heart to see our youth encounter God, know His love and to then become disciples who share the good news with others.

Ross leads an incredible team of leaders that help in our youth ministry. Ross has a heart to reach out to young people and see them come to know Jesus in a personal way. 

Ross is passionate about surfing, the outdoors and outreach. He is a Chaplin frequently involved in a number of the local schools. Ross has been influential in creating opportunities for unity across the youth groups and the wider community.
