Rolfs

Pastor Colin and Helen Rolfs

Helen, my wife and I have been married for 46 years and have seen pastoral ministry as a combined effort. We both come from teaching backgrounds, and after being married for a couple of years, we both studied fulltime at a Bible College in Melbourne. I went on to further study and ordination as a Baptist pastor. We have 4 adult children and 7 grandchildren. I ‘retired’ from fulltime pastoring in one church in 2007. Since then I have worked as a pastor in churches in an ‘interim’ capacity: times varying from 4 weeks – 6 years. Our interests include:- gardening, cooking, Bible teaching, music, friends and family and people. As we have both been followers of Jesus for over 50 years, the challenge remains to be relevant and real. Being a Christian includes enjoyment, assurance and hope . . . a basis for our ministry.

Murray Morton, Elder

As a young man (late teens) I experienced a wonderful time of forgiveness from God and loved His Word.  But the world took over and I slid all the way back.  I was determinedly unbelieving for 8 years - no church, no Bible! But my precious wife's faith never wavered. I was baptised again when I and my own family (wife and 4 children) joined the Brighton Baptist Church (now LCC) in 1976. By God's grace, since I was re-converted, I have been growing in Christ and attending this church ever since.  I absolutely love the Bible and God's truth and I love the Lord Jesus.

I have done lots of things in life: electrician, trouble shooter, technician, home handyman, miner (1 month!), sales all over the world, and a builder.  Only had 4 employers - 11 yrs, 2 yrs, 7 yrs & 40 yrs.   One gorgeous wife 57 yrs - Yay!  To God be the glory.

David d'Lima, Elder

Born in London in 1962, I came to Australia as a boy with my family in 1974 and came to an adult profession of faith in Christ as saviour and lord, in my mid-teens. I studied at Flinders and Adelaide Universities, obtaining a Degree in Theology and a Diploma of Education. I and my wife Debra have three adult children. I have fellowshipped at Lighthouse Community Church since 1982 and became an elder in 2015. I am in full-time ministry with FamilyVoice Australia which seeks to commend wisdom for community leadership and to encourage Christian people as salt and light. I also help run a Christian School in Western Kenya which provides a free high-quality education for impoverished children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

LindyCMLindy Cozens-Masri, Elder

In 1989 Lighthouse Community Church commissioned me as I went to Darwin to join Youth With A Mission as a teenager. This was the beginning of around twenty five years of missionary service, mostly spent in Lebanon in the M.E. serving in schools, a Boy’s Home and in youth ministry with Youth for Christ. I have been back in Adelaide since 2014 after a sad separation from my husband. We have two grown children; our son is still in Lebanon studying at University. I currently work in administration at an Accounting firm. I was elected to join the LCC Eldership in 2017 and have a particular interest in our corporate worship and equipping & encouraging our young adults.

Vicki Bargwanna, Administrator

I love The Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul and mind. My hearts' desire is to live my life for His glory and His kingdom.  Knowing my sins are forgiven and that God is my loving heavenly Father has filled me with a sense of belonging and peace that no man can give.  He is my salvation and my security here on this earth and I could not bear to live without Him.  He is my breath of life! My heart resonates with the words in Psalm 104:33-34. 'I will sing to The Lord all my life;  I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.  May my meditation be pleasing to Him, as I rejoice in The Lord.  

Life is full of surprises and one of those for me was to be asked in 2003 to take up the role of church Administrator.  Serving as such since that time has been both a blessing to me yet not without many challenges.  I am reassured in knowing that God is forever faithful and He is all sufficient.  How grateful I am to Him for His amazing grace to me and for the opportunity to serve His church! My desire as Administrator is to support the various ministries of this church in proclaiming God’s gospel concerning His glorious Son, Jesus Christ.
