Simon & Charlotte MacGregor
I was 5 years old when my parents planted Grace Vineyard and I really started to pursue Jesus for myself when I was 11. After experiencing God’s presence very strongly that year I felt him call me to minister to people. After leaving school, I went to England as part of a church internship and in that year I learned theology and trained in other ministry skills whilst travelling around the world. When I came back to Christchurch in 2013, I became the Youth Pastor at City Campus and led youth for seven years full-time with my wife Charlotte joining me after we got married in 2016. In Term 4 of 2020, we handed over youth and became Assistant Pastors at City Campus. It’s our favourite thing to see people meet Jesus and build His kingdom. Charlotte and I have two kids, Marley and Honey-Mae. I love surfing, eating tonnes of Indian curry, movies and being a dad.
