Matt started at Kruger in January 2013 after pastoring on the Gold Coast for 8years, working with youth and young adults. He is passionate about seeing people grow in their faith in Jesus, and loves making the gospel message make sense to people from all ages and backgrounds of life.
Matt is married to his wonderful wife, Kirsten, and has three kids; Micaela, Leah and Simeon. He loves spending time with them all. You’ll often see them tearing around the streets on their regular family bike rides! Outside of church and family, he loves having a laugh with friends, watching the footy (NRL or rugby), going for a run and playing touch footy.
Thea has been working in the office since May 2012 and is also the Coordinator of the Kruger Care Team. She is a Church Deacon and coordinates the LifeSkill Ministry. God has given her a heart for ladies of all ages and to find ways to help them to realize God’s love for them and the plan He has for their lives.
Thea is married to Graeme and between them they have 6 grown children and 12grandchildren. She loves nothing more than to have a “cuppa” and a chat with anyone in need of friendship or a listening ear. She and Graeme spend their spare time gardening and doing cryptic crossword puzzles. Their favourite holiday place is Coffs Harbour and try to get there every 6 months for a short break.
