Rev Phil Waugh - Senior Pastor

Philip has pastored here since January 2014. He is never happier than when there is an opportunity to teach or discuss some insight from the Bible. He is married to Karen and admits that without her very little would get done. In heaven he plans to do much more golfing, cycling and motor sport. His vision is for the Christian communities in the mountains to become renowned for their passionate discipleship of Jesus.
