The Australian Story
Soul Survivor NSW/ACT was born out of a passion and need to provide a base for what we called ‘middle-ground’ practice of worship, valuing intimacy with God, gifts of the Spirit and practical servant-evangelism.
In 2000, a small team from St Stephens Belrose and Holy Trinity Baulkham Hills held two nights of worship at Turramurra Uniting Church in Sydney with Mike Pilavachi. In 2001 we held our first conference at Northern Beaches Christian School, Terrey Hills. In 2004 we stepped out in faith by appointing Matt Gelding as full-time Director of Ministry for Soul Survivor NSW.
In 2013, we sent Deb Stanley down to Canberra as full-time Director of Ministry for Soul Survivor ACT & Regions. April 2016 marks the beginning of NSW/ACT running TWO consecutive April conferences; one in Canberra, one in Sydney.
Soul Survivor in NSW/ACT is now a full-time ministry, run by a core team in Sydney and Canberra. Now Soul Survivor NSW and Soul Survivor ACT minister throughout the year at camps, youth groups, church services, seminars and combined events; as well as their April conferences.
Where it all began...
In 1993, Mike Pilavachi and his team in the UK were inspired by God to lead a ministry that would give youth and 20's a renewed vision of Jesus Christ. Soul Survivor has now been ministering in the UK for over two decades, impacting thousands of people for the gospel with the passion and action of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. Soul Survivor is now in action in Holland and here in Australia (Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra ).
