Welcome to Generations Church
We are a vibrant, multi-cultural church in the rapidly-growing North-East of Hamilton, with a real sense of family, a passion for Jesus and His heart for people. The church we have a vision to build is one that is theologically sound and culturally relevant, a healthy city-reaching, Christ-exalting church of all generations and stages of life who are very active in their city and community.
Our Senior Pastors, Ian & Annette, sold their prospering Waikato dairy farm in 1989 in response to the call of God, and have now been in full time ministry for 30 years, during which time they have planted 4 churches, all of which have experienced significant growth through evangelism.
Their passion for building people, leaders and strong healthy local churches has led to them also enjoying apostolic ministry throughout NZ and overseas. Their heart’s desire is to see God’s church rise to the Magnificent House of God He intended, an influential, Spirit-filled, externally-focused, soul-winning and contagious church which represents Jesus well. The thing that stirs their passion the most is seeing the transformation of the Holy Spirit in individual peoples' lives and seeing them rise to their fullest potential in life, becoming all that God created them to be.
They both carry a breakthrough apostolic anointing and flow well in ministry together. Leadership Development is one of their major strengths and passions, as is ministering and teaching on the Holy Spirit and Faith. With a healthy marriage of 42 years, they regularly minister in the area of marriage and family, and love to see couples enjoying all the fullness, fun and vibrance God intended.
Another of their greatest passions is their family….they have four married daughters and sons-in-law (along with seven grandchildren) who share their vibrant passion for the local church and are all involved in various areas of fruitful church leadership.
