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.

When not in Kids Church, Marina enjoys taking their three boys hiking and photography, while Martin enjoys driving them there and cooking at the base. By the way, his Mie-Goreng (Fried Noodles) is a must try during church pot-luck.
