It takes a team.

To plant a sustainable church in New Zealand, you need a core group of committed church members from day one, but you'll also need some church planters. Two families with previous church planting experience have teamed again up to form the nucleus of what is already a growing church plant team. 


Hamish & Molly Taylor

Born and raised in New Zealand, Hamish grew up attending Shore Community Church in Auckland, one of our partner churches for this project. He studied at Cincinnati Christian University where he met his wife, Molly.


Nate & Whitney Hutchison

Residents of NZ since 2007, this family now calls New Zealand home. After planting a church in Christchurch with the Taylors, Nate and Whitney moved to Auckland to work with Shore CC and to prepare to plant Church Northwest.
