I own an optometry practice and am constantly amazed by the awesome design of the human eye that reflects the glory of God who designed it. I have come to know the Lord in my childhood at a youth camp in Egypt, where for the first time, I understood how Jesus paid the complete price of my salvation on the cross of Calvary. My favourite verse is Ro 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
In the church I love to preach and teach the Word of God as that helps me to dig even deeper and find hidden gems. I am also a part of the youth and music ministries and the oversight of the church.
My favourite thing is to spend time in the presence of God, worshipping Him with songs of praise. I love to do this with my brothers and sisters but I also love spending one on one time with Him just praising and worshipping Him on the humble guitar.
My name is Betty Usitai, I was born in NZ, and now I am residing in Melbourne, Victoria. I am married to a beautiful man name Byron Usitai, and have been since 2006. I am a mother of two and a mother to many more, where I am needed, and also a G- ma, (meaning grand ma) to 2 beautiful G-kids (gran kids). In 2004, Becoming a born again Christian is the best decision I could have made in my whole entire living days. I am a servant of God by assisting in the Youth Leadership team, as one of the youth leaders, and I also assist in the worship team, as a backup singer, and also in other areas that need assisting to (Tots and Kids).
My trust, and my hope, and my all in all, is in my Lord Saviour Jesus Christ. I know that the Lord has much out there for me to do, to draw many more to His kingdom. Praise God.
My line of work is Legal Services, I work with Melbourne Prosecutions unit, and the Victoria police, and I have been there since 2008. Whilst here on this earth, my purpose is to reach out and touch those with the word of God and tell him God, and win them for the Glory of His kingdom.
I grew up in a Pentecostal home and have always had the influence and teachings of God in my life but I came to know God personally when I was 10 years old. I gave my heart to the Lord downstairs in my lounge room at the same time my brother did. I was baptized in May 2000 and have never looked back. God means a lot to me; He leads me, protects me, provides for me and never ever lets me down. I don’t know where I would be without Him.
Within the church, I am a Living Undefeated youth group and bible study leader as well as one of the song leaders. Outside of church, I am a High School teacher, I love to bake and paint and I am engaged to Nathan (one of the male youth leaders). We love teaching young people about how incredible God is and we also like hanging out with the youth at our events.
My favorite bible verse is Isaiah 40:28 – 31I love this because it gives us hope when life gets tough and we feel overwhelmed; God is always there to take care of us.
My name is Nathan; I am a Living Undefeated youth group and bible study leader and the sound guy at Living Hope Family Church.
I came to know God in 2006 through a church invitation from Pastor David, gave my life to the Lord in 2007 and was baptized in 2010. The greatest experience I’ve had with God was at a church conference in 2011 when He healed my shoulder, which had been injured since 2004. On this night, for the first time in 7 years, I was able to raise my hands above my head and hold up my own body weight. Outside of church, I am an Integration aide and I’m also studying to be a PE teacher. And I am engaged to Ashley, one of the other youth leaders. We love teaching young people about how incredible God is and we also like hanging out with the youth at our events.
My favorite bible verse is Mark 4:35 – 41I love it because it is an example of how we are meant to be… Jesus tells us that we are to do greater things than even Him (John 14:12) and this is an example of how we can overcome any storm that life may throw at us; calm, in control, and with faith.
Favourite Bible Verse: Isaiah 40:8
