As a Christian church we are ultimately led by the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Head of this new community and we are His Body. Under Jesus’ leadership, GBC has a Leadership Team of men who perform the role of elders or overseers (under-shepherds) described in the Bible. GBC also has set aside 2 full-time paid Pastors. Their job description from the Bible is to Pray, Preach and Prepare God's people for works of service. At GBC we believe that every member is a minister and should be given opportunity to use their gifts to serve the Body of Christ.
Dom is married to Leslie and together they have raised three adult daughters.
He grew up on the Gold Coast with a constant suntan, a soccer ball by his side, and racing his family greyhounds. From a Catholic upbringing, Dom became a Christian at university (UNE, Armidale) after understanding that the gospel is a message of grace, centred on having a relationship with Jesus rather than mere religion or "churchianity"!
Before studying theology at Moore College (Sydney), Dom worked as an accountant in Sydney. He has served in Anglican Churches (Sydney), at Crossroads (Canberra), and since 2003 with Leslie has been involved in church planting across Canberra (SBC, Lakeside, MBC). He recently completed his Masters at SMBC.
Dom’s role as the Church Planter is to teach God’s Word and pray, to vision-cast, and equip God’s people for ministry.
