Pastor Ross Brinkman

Senior Pastor

"With more than 20 years of full time ministry experience, my wife Lyn and I are just as keen to serve the Lord among his people as ever!

We love Wagga and this church. We have 6 adult Children, with some living here. I have a deep commitment to the Word of God, to discipleship and to the family nature of church which means we must stay relevant to all ages.

I came to Christ quite young and have stayed passionate about the development of young Christians, so I am delighted to work among such a talented variety of Christian leaders such as those in our Youth and Music teams.

Ultimately, Jesus is the true leader of the church and each Christian must walk with Him at the centre of their life, and Ministry is therefore about humbly keeping in step with Jesus 'the Author and Perfecter of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2)."

Phil Briggs

Elder

"Years ago, en route to India to find a guru (teacher) to help me discover what life is all about, I was arrested out of rank heathenism by Jesus Christ, in Darwin. Since that time my heart and life has been increasingly narrowed, and expanded, to an all-encompassing preoccupation with knowing the true and living God in Jesus Christ, and with seeking to see others come to the same life-transforming encounter, and grow to maturity in this reality."

Jim Murphy

Elder

"My wife June and I both came to know Christ in 1972. Since then we  have shared a desire to serve the Lord - no matter where or how! Our time serving with the Institute of Evangelism in Papua New Guinea enabled us to grow and understand other cultures, which has been a blessing in our serving of the Lord and His people."

Kids Church / Music Director

"We love Jesus. It is amazing to think of how much our lives have changed because of his grace and work in us over so many years. We love our family and we love serving in the Kids Church ministry and in the Worship team. We pray for our boys Max and Spencer to know the life that can only be found in Jesus. "

Terry Haig

Missions Team Convenor

"My wife Maria and I have been worshipping at the Wagga Church of Christ since 1978 and grow even more passionate about serving the Lord with each year that passes. As the convenor of our Missions Finance and Support team, I have the role of calling in our members for the propagation of support for our mission teams in the field."

We are a diverse mix of people of all ages and from many different walks of life.

We are inclusive, and encouraging, and we enjoy fellowship with each other.

We don't claim to be the best church or the only church...

...we are one of many vibrant Christian Churches in our region.

What we believe...

We believe that Jesus is the risen Son of God and the Saviour of humanity.

We believe that Jesus died on a cross as a sacrifice for the world's sin, and that he rose again, to eternal life and now sits at the right hand of God.

We encourage people to discover who Jesus is, through reading the Bible, and to pray and earnestly seek him.

We encourage people to respond to Jesus by making an intelligent and meaningful commitment to him, and to observe his teaching.

We are affiliated with the Churches of Christ in New South Wales.

While we are an affiliated member church, each local Church of Christ is independent. Its autonomy is respected. However, local churches form a part of a wider network with many other churches.

Together they comprise the state and national conferences of the Churches of Christ in Australia.
