Jai and his wife Jay-Ellen moved to Mackay at the start of 2011 and have really enjoyed getting to know the place and the people!  Jai and Jay have a vision for starting new churches and a love for country Queensland which goes hand in hand with a strong desire to share the good news of Jesus.  Jai completed a 4yr engineering degree, worked in an engineering firm for 2yrs in the oil and gas industries.  He then changed gears and spent 2 years in full time ministry, training at St.Lucia Bible Church (Brisbane), and then spent four years in Sydney where he studied at Moore Theological College completing a Bachelor of Divinity.  During this time Jay-Ellen (who is also an engineer) worked as an acoustic engineer for a couple of years and since then has invested in their four children, Amber, Ebony, Kade and Jett and sought to see their family thrive!  Jay-ellen in also very active in the Kids Church ministry and seeking to see people trained at church.  They have seen God’s hand building this church in so many ways and are super excited to be in Mackay sharing God’s love ultimately seen in Jesus!  We encourage you to come and join us as we seek to be a vibrant and growing, Bible-teaching church.
