ABOUT

OUR PURPOSE AND VISION

Our purpose is to lead people into becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to build growing, contemporary churches, filled with those people.

OUR MOVEMENT

C3 Church Global is an international movement of churches: Christ-centred, Spirit-powered and connect-driven. We want people to know Jesus in a fresh, personal way; to have a real-time connection with God. We are a hospitable people – generous and fun and full of life – and we are committed to healthy and growing churches around the world.
As an international family, our members can walk into any of our C3 Churches and know they’re home.

OUR PASTORS

c3 Byron Bay church

Jeff & Carolyn Frankham

Founding and Senior Pastors

Jeff and Carolyn grew up on the North Coast of NSW graduating from Ballina High School in 1975. From there they travelled to Toowoomba in Queensland where they pursued tertiary studies at the University of Southern Queensland, Carolyn in Visual Arts and Jeff in Education.
After graduating in 1979 they helped pioneer a Christian School in Toowoomba with Jeff then serving as principal for five years. During this time they also completed Bible College in Vancouver Canada and started their family.

After struggling with illness during the early 90’s Jeff moved from education to the pastoral area working with a local Toowoomba church in the areas of youth, music and then leadership. During this time Carolyn began teaching art in a local high school and also began producing the first in her series of abstract paintings.

In 2001 they felt God calling them to return home to the region where they had grown up to start a new contemporary church, which is of course, C3 Byron Bay/ Ballina/ Yamba. They have four children and four grand-daughters.

Annaliese & Santi

Byron Bay Campus Pastors

A Northern Rivers local, Annaliese has been a part of C3 Ballina since its inception, and on staff since 2004. Santi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and spent his early years in Australia before returning to Argentina for a period of time. In 2002, he moved back to Sydney permanently and in 2005 had a life-transforming encounter with Jesus Christ at C3 Oxford Falls, which then became his home church. After meeting Annaliese, he made the great decision to move to the Northern Rivers of NSW.

Together they became Campus Pastors of Byron Bay in late 2014, and are excited about building a great church in such an iconic location. They have two young daughters who keep them busy!

OUR START & FUTURE

More about c3 church

Our movement is committed to healthy relationships and connection between ministers and churches. As an international family our members are able to walk into any of our C3 Churches around the world and know they’re home. We are united with Christ in His vision, and therefore our mission, to save the lost, make disciples and build His church.

With over 500 churches in 64 countries, we are rapidly moving towards the 2020 Vision of 1,000 Locations planted by the year 2020.

With a passion for Jesus and desire to see this world won for Christ, Phil and Chris Pringle came to Sydney in 1980 to start a church. With just 12 people attending an Easter service, Christian Centre Northside began and the C3 Church movement as we now know it was birthed. This church soon began planting within Sydney and beyond to cities and countries outside of Australia.
