OUR SENIOR PASTORS
Wayne and Lyn Alcorn have been the Senior Pastors of Hope Centre since 2000. Evident in Hope Centre’s rich history is the mandate to plant churches, raise and send out leaders, and transform communities. Under the leadership of Wayne and Lyn, Hope Centre continues to flourish in its mandate; as a multi-campus, multi-ethnic, multi-generational church in Queensland's south-east corner, reaching communities down the road and around the globe. Wayne and Lyn have two sons, both married: Brendan and Josie, Ryan and Breony, and their much loved grandsons, Dallas, Ezra, Jed and Grayson.
Wayne is a visionary leader and great communicator. He is most passionate about championing the cause of Christ, empowering the local church, and continuing to raise the next generation of leaders. With over 35 years in ministry, Wayne is the current National President of the Australian Christian Churches and a sought-after speaker across the globe. He shares candidly through life-experience, humour and Biblical truth.
Lyn is the driving force behind Hope Centre's welcoming environment and strong pastoral care. She is passionate in seeing people find a place to call home. Her care for people extends beyond the sphere of local church and into communities down the road and around the globe. Her women's conference, She Stands for Justice, has gained a significant following in our nation as a very practical conference that connects justice as worship in action.
WE EXIST BECAUSE PEOPLE MATTER
The roots of Hope Centre span more than 85 years ago when we were known as Glad Tidings Tabernacle, based in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. Since then our reach has expanded across South East Queensland and into the Northern Territory with sites in Brisbane, Logan, Moreton, Ipswich and coming soon to Redlands. Our partnership churches include Desert Life Church in Alice Springs and New Life Christian Church in Nambour.
Hope Centre is part of Australian Christian Churches.
We live a life of worship through a personal relationship with Jesus and gathering together with His church.
We thrive in relationship and connect with others.
We pursue a life of discipleship and serve people as Jesus would.
We live on mission and seek to make a difference in our world.
