Grant Hendry – Senior Pastor
Grant has been Senior Pastor of NBBC since early 2012, after 14 years of pastoral ministry in beautiful Busselton. Prior to that, he thoroughly enjoyed working as a pharmacist. Grant and his wife Maree have three adult children, Ashlynne, Caleb & Breanna. In the rare moments of spare time, Grant loves creating things in his shed, and going on 4WD camping holidays. Grant is convinced that the life message of Jesus lives on through the local church, and that there is no situation, life, family or city that God can’t restore and renew. Grant sees his role as being a ‘leader of leaders’ to equip, encouraging and release others into ministry to grow God’s kingdom in the northern suburbs of Perth and to the ends of the earth.
Brad Vigus – Pastor: Sunday @6
Brad started working at North Beach in mid-2016. Before joining the NBBC team Brad has served in ministry at Curtin University with the students in the AFES Christian Union, and was also pastor at Dalkeith Baptist Church. Brad enjoys opening the Bible with people and helping them to consider Jesus and His gospel. Brad is married to Shona and has three daughters and enjoys time with the family playing games or enjoying a pizza and movie night together. For Brad a nice day off is a mixture of exercise (running or swimming), along with music and coffee.
Anton Hallam – Interim Pastor: Youth and Young Adults
Alan Raven – Pastor: Training and Discipleship
Alan and his wife Sonja became part of the NBBC family in mid 2007. God has since blessed them with two lovely daughters. After about 14 years of working as a Civil Engineer, the Lord led Alan to leave Engineering in order to dedicate his life to teaching God’s Word. His passion is to encourage people to follow Jesus and to train them to love, live, declare, and defend the Word.
Merv Hodge – Pastor of Group Life
Bruce Miller – Pastor: Pastoral Care
Bruce has been engaged in pastoral ministry for over 20 years, in both NSW and W.A. churches. He has 4 adult children and a growing number of grandies. His wife Carolyn enjoys the mix of school-teaching and pastoral work as time allows. On the church’s Pastoral Care team Bruce loves to sit down with people, hear their stories, and encourage others in their spiritual growth. Sharing from God’s Word, whether with the few, or the many, is always a privilege and a delight. Spare time is spent gardening, puzzle-ing, or playing (not nearly enough!) golf.
Hayley Pearce – Childrens Ministry Team Leader
Candy Billington – Childrens Ministry Worker
Kaye Tranter – Administration Manager
Kaye is the mother of three wonderful adult children and their lovely spouses, granny to an ever growing number of grandies and grand-dogs. She has always loved being a ‘mum’ and finds wearing the hat of being a ‘granny’ the best ever. Kaye has loved being a part of the NBBC family for the past 20+ years, learning lots along the way. Kaye is practically part of the furniture in the office, saying she was ‘terrified to begin with but in reality finds it a real blessing, privilege and joy to be in this God given role, working alongside this great team, getting to know people and seeing how God takes them along their journey’. She enjoys a good movie and loves watching basketball (especially if she knows any of the players)!
Lisa Cowan – Women’s Ministry Worker
Lisa has been a part of the NBBC family since November 2017. She has been married to Roger for 30 years, they have six children with four of them now married. Lisa was born in Canada and then has lived in three more countries with Roger as they served with Pioneers in church planting, pre-field training and pastoral care of missionaries. Lisa has a passion to see God’s word transform women’s lives. She enjoys teaching women the Truth, coming alongside them in difficulties and challenging them to live according to God’s word. In her leisure time, she enjoys walking the beach/bush with Roger and ending with the highlight – long chats over a flat white! She looks forward to spending time with her kids and grandchildren over a big meal or other unique adventures that a large family brings!
