With over 25 years of ministry experience, Jurgen and Leanne are a dynamic couple who live what they preach and lead by example! After finishing Hillsong Bible College in the early 90’s, Jurgen and Leanne were married and moved to beautiful New Zealand to pastor the youth at a church in Auckland, NZ. With much growth and success in their seven years in Auckland, they moved back to Sydney, Australia to lead the youth ministry under the leadership of Ps. Phil & Chris Pringle at C3 Church Oxford Falls. They saw God grow the youth ministry to one of the largest in Australia, and pioneered the hugely successful Phenomena Youth Conference.
In 2005, they were sent out by Ps. Phil & Chris Pringle to pioneer a new C3 church plant in San Diego, CA. Fast forward to today, and now they have four campus locations across San Diego, as well as a satellite campus in Salt Lake City with close to 7,000 attendees every Sunday. They currently live in San Diego with their four children; Jordan, Ash, Tommy, and Zoe.
