Our Leaders


Believing that every Christian is a “minister,” we have a very large “ministry team”! A few members of that team are mentioned below.

Malcolm Webber is the Senior Pastor of the church. He is also the founder and president of Strategic Global Assistance, Inc. - a ministry dedicated to facilitating leadership development, particularly in poor and closed nations. Malcolm was born in Australia at a very early age. He grew up in Brisbane, Queensland, and was dramatically saved in 1980 at the age of 19. He began ministering soon after. Malcolm has had the privilege of seeing the Lord save, heal, deliver, teach and equip many people and many leaders in about 30 nations around the world.

He met his wife Ruth (a native of Indiana), when he was visiting America in 1984. They were married the following year and now have six children on the earth - John, Marlise, Sarah, David, Joshua and Malcolm II. Malcolm received his B.A. from Queensland University and his M.A. from Regent University. He has a Ph.D. in organizational leadership from the Center for Leadership Studies in Virginia Beach. He has written over 30 books, the most popular of which is To Enjoy Him Forever, and his writings have been published in both scholarly and popular journals. Malcolmís two life purposes are “To know God and to help others know Him” and “To build leaders to impact the nations.”
