Just because you live in a beautiful place like Wollongong doesn’t mean you have life all figured out.
Life is chaotic: full of work-pressures, family-responsibilities, relationship-dramas, and money-stresses. There are endless things to distract and entertain, but where exactly is the good life found?
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Maybe you want to investigate Jesus or reconnect with him. Maybe you’re considering visiting church for the first time, or the first time in a long time.
Is learning about Jesus in community the missing ingredient to the life you long for?
Jesus changed my life and he can change yours too. Each of us longs for friendship, wisdom and purpose. Jesus provides all of those things. That is why he is the foundation of our community.
Joel Deacon is the Planting Pastor of City on a Hill Wollongong. He is firmly convinced that we are designed for community, especially in a big and sometimes lonely city like Wollongong. Before becoming a pastor, Joel worked as a Civil Engineer and is always up for a chat about roads and bridges. But his greatest passion is talking to people about Jesus. Joel is married to Emma, and they have three kids Elijah, Isaac and Lily. An ideal day off for Joel would include coffee with his wife, smelling flowers with his daughter, wrestling with his boys, reading, and staying up late to watch EPL.
