Matt & Becca.
MATT & BECCA SCHUBERT Mission Facilitators & Church Planters
ROCKINGHAM MANDURAH LUTHERAN CHURCH, WA
Matt is the church planting leader of Everhope Church. He spends his days helping form Everhope into a church which connects with those who don’t think of themselves as “church people” — neighbours, school friends, family and the like. Matt has a BMin (Pastoral) from Perth Bible College (where he met Becca!) and is completing his Master of Theology through Australian Lutheran College.
Becca holds a Diploma of Ministry and is currently studying Dental Assisting. She is a gifted violinist and enjoys joining Matt in ministry.
Together, Matt and Becca are settling into the coastal suburb of Golden Bay, looking for ways to embrace this community God has placed them in.
‘A down-to-earth church, bringing long-lasting hope to everyday people and everyday life.’
Rockingham Mandurah Lutheran Church began exploring relational evangelism, inviting LCA Church Planting Mentor Dean Eaton to lead our congregation in training workshops.
We asked the LCA’s New and Renewing Churches Department to lead us in three workshops throughout the year on the implications of church planting.
We formerly voted to become a Sending Church, making efforts to plant a new congregation.
We called and employed Matt Schubert as the mission facilitator and church planter leader. Matt had worked as our youth ministry coordinator before feeling a pull towards church planting and local mission.
Our first missional community was formed in Baldivis.
Bishop Mike Fulwood and the WA District Church Council endorsed our church planting endeavour led by Matt.
A second Missional Community was formed in the northern suburbs of Mandurah.
1,242,801 West Australians don’t know the Gospel of Jesus. Church planting is the best way to change that.*
*New churches are five times more likely to reach an unchurched or de-churched person.
