About

Our Background

IMG_1790Chas was an evolutionist and his beliefs were only strengthened during his years of dental surgery studies at the University of Queensland and while completing a Masters degree in biological studies at London University.

However this all changed when he witnessed a healing miracle which sent him on a journey to discover the truth about the Bible and Genesis. This has now given him a strong platform to challenge myths that surround evolution and declare the truth of Genesis.

Chas and Fran pioneered Nowra inc in 1987 and built a strong local church to over 500 before taking on the senior leadership of Suncoast Church in 1996 building that congregation to well over 1000 strong. They also trained up leaders to plant churches across Australia, NZ, USA and the South Pacific.

They were the Queensland state leaders for inc for 12 years, oversaw the South Pacific inc churches till 1998 and have been on the National Executive of inc since 1994. They have overseen a large Christian college (P-12) and a bible college (diploma level) on the Sunshine Coast and pioneered Suncoast Care, which is a food outlet for over 7000 families with prime shop facilities in the heart of Nambour.

They have five adult children (and a growing number of grand children) all who have successfully navigated university degrees while remaining (and are presently) very active members of their local churches.

Fran has developed a strong prophetic gift which is frequently a blessing to many people as she ministers at churches and women’s conferences throughout Australia, Europe and Asia.

Chas has authored three books, “Heaven’s Gift of Marriage” – “Designer Family” – “Born 4 BC” and written a regular column on relationships for over 10 years in the local newspaper.
