Lead Pastor David Gilchrist with Margy Gilchrist
As a boy, David loved to pretend he was a church Pastor, and played church! Now God has led David to actually be a Pastor of Ettalong Baptist Church. David loves the Lord, and loves the Lord’s church. He counts it a huge privilege to share the love of Christ with the people of “The Peninsula.” Before being a Pastor, David was a horticulturalist, working for large nursery in the Blue Mountains. He has also served in churches in Eastwood (in Sydney) and in Bega (on the Far South Coast of NSW). David is married to Margy and they have two children, Lizzie and Joseph.
Youth Pastor Johnny Sharpe with Jodie Sharpe
Johnny joined Ettalong Baptist Church in 2016. He has been working with young people for many years, and is passionate about seeing them grow and mature to be all they were made to be. Johnny is a deep thinker and wants to work out what it means to follow Jesus every day in all of life. Before he figured out he was a pastor, he worked as an English teacher, a writer/actor, a Math’s tutor and a rock-climbing instructor! Johnny is married to Jodie, and he loves friends, music, sport, movies, bad jokes, games, milkshakes and coffee.
