Rodger and Megan
Pastors Rodger and Megan Garland are the Senior and Associate Pastors of Grace Fellowship Church. They met and married 20 years ago while living and worshipping in Alice Springs, NT. There they discerned a call to the Kimberley region of WA so further prepared by full time theological, mission and leadership training. On graduating in 2005 they commenced 10 years of ministry as Church Planters in Kununurra WA.
In 2015 Rodger and Megan traveled with their three school age children to Victoria to begin ministry in Grace Fellowship Church. Some of their core values are a balance of both word and Spirit in life and ministry; a passion for both evangelism and discipleship; and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Grace Fellowship Church in recent years has flourished as a vibrant and relevant local church which is also pioneering ministry afresh in its surrounding regional areas.
