CHRIS PODLICH Church Planter
BEYOND CHURCH Murrumba Downs, Qld
Chris is proud to be a part of the New & Renewing Department and works closely alongside the future generation of church planting leaders within the LCA/NZ. He leads Beyond Church, a church plant in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, which has a vision to ‘create churches that unchurched people love to engage with’.
Chris has a passion for sharing the life-changing message of Jesus in a way that connects with unchurched and de-churched people. He is married to his beautiful wife Emma, and is what some people would refer to as a coffee snob.
