Who Is City Church Batemans Bay.


Jason & Michelle Smith


Jason and Michelle have been the Senior Pastors of City Church since April 2015. They first came into leading churches when they pioneered their first church in Morayfield, Brisbane in 1999. This church was birthed from their own home and started by simply inviting the neighbours in their own street. Twelve years later they had established a thriving church of over 400 members.

International Network of Churches (INC), the church network of which our church is a part of, then asked Jason & Michelle to move to Auckland in New Zealand, where they took on the responsibility of being the National Chairman of New Zealand and Tonga for INC. God blessed their time in New Zealand and graced them to lead the church into purchasing and renovating an amazing property for the church in Auckland and seeing the church grow and move forward greatly.

Four years later they were asked by INC to come to City Church and take on the Senior Pastor role here. God has thoroughly blessed this move for them and their two teenage children Jayden and Tayla. They are a very active and musical family and have always loved God and His church with a passion. Jason and Michelle began their first church in their early twenties, so they have a rare combination of having a lot of experience and still being young enough to be able to invest many years of service into City Church. They are so excited to see where God takes our church in the coming years.
