The Team

New Life Church is continually cared for by a pastoral team of dedicated men and women who are here to serve you.
Senior Pastors
Chris Stark sensed the call to be a Pastor at a very young age, and after completing his Theological Studies in South Africa and the USA, he started serving as a pastor at New Life Church.
Chris has a deep love for people and values creating a “come as you are” culture in the church that reaches those far from God and gives them a church home where they can become all God intended. Together with his wife Lisa, he is passionate to help people find forgiveness, grace, healing, acceptance and freedom through Jesus Christ. Chris is a real and authentic communicator of God’s truth, and seeks to create transformational experiences that help people encounter the love and the presence of God.
Chris and Lisa have been married for 25 years and have two beautiful children.
