Interim Senior Pastor

Bethany is our Interim Senior Pastor at Encounter Church, Author of On Being Single and all round decent human. She walks in integrity, carries authority, is real and down-to-earth. Bethany is driven by love for God, obedience to His word & the desire is to see the reality of Jesus in everyday life. She values the presence of God, people in her world & cups of tea! She’s also known to overthink things, declutter everything & laugh loudly!


We are a family who do life together, who love and serve one another. This is our privilege and responsibility.


Our eKids programs cater for preschoolers and school-aged children. Their lively programs that teach Jesus in a fun and inactive way. Available at Gawler 11 am service (check-in happens in the foyer), as well as our Barmera and Balaklava campuses.
