WHO WE ARE
We are a young church located on the beautiful Coffs Coast on a voyage to worship God and lead others to the hope found in JESUS.
We invite everyone to encounter and be changed by the love of God and people.
We desire to live humbly, love deeply, forgive regularly and laugh loudly, experiencing genuine community no matter our size.
We value Gods Word, depend on His Spirit and Worship Him with all our hearts.
We are so glad to be on this great voyage together and we invite you to join us.
Voyage comes from the word pilgrimage found in the Bible
Psalm 84 'Blessed are the people whose strength is in God, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage"
This life of faith is a wonderful adventure for those who chose to discover and follow God
In life we encounter mountains high and valleys low, but no matter the terrain we are confident that we do not travel alone
God is with us every step of the way, cheering us on and generously providing all we need through the grace of his son Jesus, and his family of other travellers (the church). Blessed and joyful are those whose hearts are set on this voyage, they are ever singing His praises
With music and enthusiasm we sing, praise and declare the goodness of God in response to His great love for us.
But Worship is more than a song, in fact the Bible tells us Worship can be found in how we think and act about everything we do.
The way we care for others and creation, working diligently, raising children, forgiving, humility, honesty, generosity and telling others the Good News about Jesus are just some examples.
Fulfilment and purpose is found when we sing and live our lives in Worship to God.
OUR LEAD PASTORS
Mike & Bec Neal have lived and worked on the Coffs Coast for many years and operate a local construction business. Mike moved from western NSW at the age of 19 and Bec's parents moved to the Coffs Coast when she was 2 years old.
With an ever increasing love for Jesus, and faith in their hearts, they commenced Voyage in November 2016 with just a handful of people in their lounge room.
Mike and Bec have been married for over 30 years and have adult children. They are a vibrant warm couple leading a loving, life giving church where people from all ages and walks of life are welcome to belong, participate, and follow Jesus together.
They love to express heartfelt praise and worship through music and song. They highly value God's life changing Word and they desire to be a part of a loving faith community.
Mike & Bec are filled with hope for what the future holds for Voyage and the people of Sawtell, Toormina and the Coffs Coast.
