Your Regional Pastors:
Johnny and Bex Kanawa

Johnny and Bex tied the knot in 2013 and have recently added to their family, welcoming their little boy Levi in April 2015. They have both held numerous leadership roles at LIFE, carrying key roles in both youth and young adult’s ministry. Bex grew up in Red Beach and has been working in the mental health sector for over 8 years. Johnny is originally from Taupo and for the past few years has been overseeing the Ministry School at Lifeway College. They love being outdoors, especially camping and spending time at the beach with friends and family. They believe the Church is the hope of the world and love seeing people connect with God and flourish in all He has for them.
