WELCOME

Hey Brothers,

We’re so excited about this year’s Men’s Conference, one jammed packed day of God, Messages & Man Stuff!

The combination of speakers for this year is amazing and knowing their link to our theme, we just know it’s going to go off. Pastor Jurgen Matthesius is a well know C3 Pastor who has gone from church planting (C3 SanDiego) to leading the movement he’s a part of in Northern America. Pastor Mark Varughese is the Senior Pastor of Kingdomcity and has God’s hand of favour on him as he plants churches all around the world. Both these Men have been BRANDED by the Spirit for the purposes of God, and I have no doubt that if you’ll attend Covenant Conference this year you’ll be BRANDED by God for His purposes before you leave.

Register today and know your place at conference is guaranteed, really hope to see you there.

Blessings,

Shane

Jurgen MATTHESIUS (C3 Church, San Diego, USA)

Jurgen and Leanne met in Sydney, Australia when Jurgen was serving as youth pastor for the church Leanne attended. After Jurgen went to Hillsong College, he moved to New Zealand as part of a Hillsong church plant. After six months of running the youth ministry at South City Christian Life Centre, Jurgen travelled back to Australia to marry his sweetheart Leanne!! After their wedding and some tearful goodbyes to family and friends, Jurgen and Leanne travelled back to NZ to resume pastoring the youth at South City Christian Life Centre.

During the seven years they were in New Zealand, Jurgen and Leanne had a profound and long-lasting impact on the city of Auckland especially amongst its youth. Jurgen had become a popular speaker in colleges and high schools and had grown and developed the youth ministry at South City CLC to make it one of the largest in the nation at that time.

They had also welcomed their first two “kiwi” sons Jordan and Ashley. In the summer of 1998 Jurgen and Leanne felt a strong call from God to move back to Australia. They sold their home and packed up their boys and belongings and planted themselves in one of Australia’s most incredible churches, C3 Church Oxford Falls. Under the amazing leadership of Pastors Phil & Chris Pringle they were appointed as youth pastors. In the fall of 2001 they welcomed Tommy, their third son and presumably their third and final child! In the seven years they were part of the team at C3 Oxford Falls Jurgen and Leanne grew the youth ministry to over 750 strong and pioneered the hugely successful Phenomena youth conference that hosted over 3000 delegates from Australia, New Zealand, and around the world. In the fall of 2004, Pastor Phil approached Jurgen and Leanne about starting a church in San Diego, California.

Having never even been to San Diego, they both were hesitant about moving but it didn’t take long before God confirmed the move. In the summer of 2005, Jurgen and Leanne and their three boys packed up all their belongings and moved to San Diego. On August 20th, 2005, C3 San Diego had its first service and an attendance of 50 people.

In 2008, after many years of wanting a girl to add to the family, Jurgen and Leanne welcomed beautiful baby Zoe into the Matthesius clan. In 2011 the first permanent C3 San Diego location was built in the Carlsbad area of San Diego which is about 30 minutes north of downtown. Then in the Summer of 2013, construction was completed on the new Central Campus located in the Clairemont/Kearny Mesa area of central San Diego. With the journey in San Diego just starting, Jurgen and Leanne are confident in knowing that these days are only the beginnings of the amazing things that God wants to do in San Diego!

Mark VARUGHESE (Kingdom City, Perth, WA)

Mark & Jemima Varughese are the Senior Leaders of Kingdomcity – a growing, vibrant church of over 18,000 people in seven countries and in 11 cities: Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Kuching & Penang in Malaysia – Perth, Australia – Phnom Penh, Cambodia – Singapore – Gaborone, Botswana – Dubai, United Arab Emirates – London, United Kingdom.

They both love God wholeheartedly and are passionate about church but took very different paths to get there. Mark was born in Singapore in April 1975, raised in Malaysia, from parents of Indian descent but grew up in Perth since 9. He completed his Bachelors of Law and Commerce in UWA and practiced as a lawyer for 5 years before answering the call of God to full time ministry in 2003.

After his ‘burning bush’ experience in 2005, he went to Malaysia in Feb 2006 to pioneer what has today become Kingdomcity. Jemima was born in New Zealand in December 1975 but grew up in the Philippines as the eldest daughter of missionary parents. At 18, she came back to Australia and completed an Arts degree majoring in Communications. She worked for Deakin University in the Marketing and IT division before completing her Masters in Arts majoring in Theological studies in Ministry. After serving as youth pastor, administrator and multiple other roles in her father’s church in Queensland, she married Mark in September 2007 and moved to Malaysia to join him in leading Kingdomcity.

Because of their uniquely diverse backgrounds, they have a big heart for people of all cultures and all ages and are most passionate about seeing the cities of our world impacted by God through the local church. With Kingdomcity located in 1st world, developing world and 3rd world cities in Western, Asian, African and middle Eastern contexts, the heart to ‘make disciples of all nations’ is taking shape.

Blessed with incredible leaders that have been raised, discipled and empowered in each city, the mandate to ‘bring the kingdom to each city’ is what continues to fuel their journey. Mark & Jemima have 2 energetic, growing sons, Zeke (9) and Caleb (5).
