The spiritual direction and leadership of The Billabong is the responsibility of our voluntary leadership team, along with our Minister, Revd. Luke Williams. The Leadership Team are responsible for overseeing the pastoral care, teaching, training and missional initiatives of the church community as well as the practical areas of finance, property and administration. They, along with other ministry leaders work with Luke to ensure our large gatherings (Celebrations), smaller gatherings (small groups and life communities) and programs and activities are each contributing to the church living out its mission of "promoting life in our communities with growing faith, grounded hope and generous love".
Luke and his wife Kerin have a heart to see all Christians living as and making devoted disciples of Jesus. Luke began his placement as a Minister at The Billabong in February 2013 after interning at the church. He and Kerin were married in September of that year, and Kerin now works as a chaplain at Kelmscott Senior High School and helps lead the children's ministry and playgroup at The Billabong. They have a 1 year old son, Micah and are expecting their second child.
