OUR LEADERS

The leadership of Fusion City Church

The responsibility of our Board of Elders is the pastoral oversight of the church, setting the strategic vision and governance of our church. They are assisted by a team of leaders who assist in the outworking of the church’s vision and caring for people as well as various day to day operations of the church.

MATT + GILL McGAW

Senior Pastors

Fusion City Church is led by Ps Matt and Ps Gill McGaw. In 2007 Matt, Gill and their 3 kids - Beth, Dan and Nathan - moved to Canberra in response to a calling and vision from God to pioneer a church in the Nation’s Capital. Before relocating to Canberra, Matt and Gill were part of the pastoral team at Victory Church in Adelaide, led by Tony and Kath Rainbow. Prior to 2004 the McGaw family lived in South Africa, where they pioneered their first church Breakthru Christian Church in Durban, South Africa. They have over the years had the opportunity to minister extensively throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and America. The church leadership experience they have brought with them is substantial and they are incredibly passionate to see God transform the lives of people in our city across all generations.

RHYS ANDERSON

Assistant Pastor

Once upon a time, Rhys (with great hesitation) walked in the doors of Fusion City Church to please his new fiancé, Natalie. Little did he know the plans God had in store for him!
Years on, Rhys stepped into the role as FusionKIDS Pastor and has lead the team with vision, passion and whole lot of fun. We were excited to ordain Rhys as an Assistant Pastor in Fusion recently, and now works part-time for the church.

Rhys and Natalie have two babies - one handsome baby boy and a slobbery bulldog named Chico, plus another baby girl on the way.

DARRYL WIHAPI

Youth Pastor

Daz leads Fusion's dynamic and energetic youth ministry - Ignite Youth! With a great team, Daz aim is to make it a place where young people can be authentic and real. He is working to raise up a generation who are passionate about Jesus, have a desire to make a difference in Canberra and be a generation of impact! Before joining the team at Fusion City Church, Daz was part of the youth team at Life Church New Zealand.
Darryl's wonderful wife Silia is also part of the team at Fusion City Church working in administration. They are parents to two beautiful young children.
