Pr Cristian Copaceanu

When he’s not revelling in the company of his queen and two princesses, Cristian devotes his time and passion to sharing the greatest news ever told with anyone who will listen and empowering others to do the same. He enjoys all things tech related, especially the fruity variety, most sports (playing, not watching) and losing all sense of time and space with a good book or two or three.

Over the years Cristian has pastored seven local churches in Victoria and NSW, established and developed the Faith FM radio network across the country and served as the Australian Union Conference Personal Ministries, Sabbath School and Stewardship Director. Today he is grateful for the opportunity to serve Jesus in South New South Wales by supporting a committed team of ministers and educators as a Conference President.

Ian Howie

Pr Ian Howie

Ian foolishly thought retirement might be about relaxing and taking life easy, he found it’s more about cessation of income, and life otherwise continuing as normal. His career has taken him from country Victoria to New Zealand, back to Melbourne, then on to Sydney and now to the Lake Macquarie area.

Along the way he married a beautiful wife, gained three wonderful boys and ultimately their spouses, and now finds that his schedule, if such exists, has to expand to meet the developing interests of 8 amazing grandkids aged from 4 to 17! He’s loved introducing Jesus to children, young people and adults as a teacher, chaplain and pastor. In addition to his family Ian still supports young people seeking some grandfatherly wisdom, and loves to get time in his garden, to read extensively and to pursue his keen interest in ensuring that Jesus and His message is easily understood in today’s complex and increasingly critical world.


Pr Andrew Kingston

Whether it’s cleaning toilets at Melbourne Camp, flying in helicopters, getting soaked in stormy seas and real four-wheel driving in the Solomon Islands and preaching to thousands in PNG, Andrew has had an exciting 43 years in ministry.

Married to Janette, and with 5 adult children and 17 grandchildren, he feels extremely blessed. ‘Our God is a great God,’ Andrew says, ‘ and it is an honour to serve Him.’ Recently retired, he and Janette live on the beautiful south coast of NSW.

Jeremy Taituave

Jeremy Taituave

Jeremy is the Minister for the Tumut, Tumbarrumba and Corryong Churches. He has two beautiful girls in his life, Sarina (wife) and Eva-May (daughter) who are the world to him.

He loves Jesus because He has transformed his life in amazing ways and as a response followed Him into ministry. Before ministry Jeremy was a Personal Trainer which is something he still holds close and tries to implement this into
