Michael and Esther
On the same Sunday morning in November 2011, Esther and Mike each, separately, experienced God calling to come here. That calling translated into serving CrossCulture & the Community at Point Cook. Mike & Esther moved here in 2012. In 2013 Mike took over as lead pastor.
Mike and Esther’s passion is to help others encounter God in Christ Jesus and to experience authentic Christian Community. That’s what really drives them.
They have both worked in developing countries. They love good food from different cultures and are excited that Point Cook is home to people from so many nations. Esther really loves her part-time work as a GP. Mike loves walking, especially bushwalking in the Australian Alpine Country.
David and Rebecca
From Kaohsiung, Taiwan, David with his wife, Rebecca and three children first arrived in Melbourne in the year 2000 to study at Bible College of Victoria. After graduating, they followed God’s calling to the Northern Territory where they served in the only Chinese church in the Northern Territory for 15 years.
David and Rebecca returned to Melbourne to serve at Melbourne Glory Church for another 4 years. Seeing the increasing Chinese community in the west of Melbourne due to immigration and work relocation, they responded to God’s call and came to serve at Cross Culture Church Point Cook Mandarin Service in 2022.
David and Rebecca enjoy meeting many new friends from all over the world and sharing God’s love and the Gospel with them. Rebecca is particularly burdened with women’s ministry and family counselling.
They hope to be a blessing to the Chinese community in the newly developed areas of west of Melbourne.
