Together with Don and Karen, Chris and Hope are Senior Leaders and part of our Pastoral Care team. Chris and Hope moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2013 having visited Gateway many times over the years. Prior to moving to New Zealand, Chris was the International Missions Director for the Elim Pentecostal Churches in the UK and Hope worked in a school for children with special educational needs. They are passionate about helping people find their place in our community; helping them to develop strong foundations, grounded in God’s Word and to live lives of purpose and influence.
