Mathew von Stanke

Newcastle Pastor

For I am convinced that neither life nor death, neither angels nor demons, … nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 8: 38-39

Before my ordination as a Lutheran Pastor in 2018, I had been a middle school maths and science teacher at an independent Christian School in Canberra. I had always enjoyed discovering, and helping others to discover, the order and wonders of God’s creation through maths and science. I still love working with youth and young people, now I just get to do it outside of the confines of a classroom. I met my wife Elise while we were working as interns at Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre in 2001. We were married in 2006 and since then have had three lovely children, Lily, Aaron, and Noah. I am currently serving the LifeWay community as the Newcastle Pastor and am super excited about all the amazing things God has in store for the whole LifeWay family.
