To all you lovely ladies out there, I can feel in my spirit a rise coming in us. There is unrecognised greatness within you, talents and gifts that when fanned into flame by faith will change the atmosphere around you and increase your influence. I see you becoming unlocked, flourishing…overcoming as God reveals what is unseen.

Everywoman is always my favourite time of year where the daughters of God gather from all over the country to collectively and individually hear from their Father. I am always blown away with the stories of what He does over these weekends. This year will be no different.

I’ll see you there,

Much Love

Ps Leanne Matthesius

Leanne was born in a small town on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. She was the fourth of five girls and was bought up in a rural farming community by two very loving, Christian parents. Her grandfather was actually the mayor of the town and her family ran one of the dairy farms in the community. She made her own decision for Christ at a J. John rally held at a basketball stadium in Wollongong and was fired up for God from that time forward.

In 1989, she met Jurgen at a Church of Christ in Wollongong and was immediately smitten by this ruggedly handsome surfer with a passion for God. They dated for three years before getting married and moving to New Zealand to be a part of a Hillsong church plant.

During the seven years they were in New Zealand, Jurgen and Leanne had a profound and long lasting impact on the city of Auckland especially amongst its youth. Jurgen had become a popular speaker in colleges and high schools and had grown and developed the youth ministry at South City CLC to make it one of the largest in the nation at that time.

They had also welcomed their first two “kiwi” sons Jordan and Ashley. In the summer of 1998 Jurgen and Leanne felt a strong call from God to move back to Australia. They sold their home and packed up their boys and belongings and planted themselves in one of Australia’s most incredible churches, C3 Church Oxford Falls.

Under the amazing leadership of Pastors Phil & Chris Pringle they were appointed as youth pastors. In the fall of 2001 they welcomed Tommy, their third son and presumably their third and final child! In the seven years they were part of the team at C3 Oxford Falls Jurgen and Leanne grew the youth ministry to over 750 strong and pioneered the hugely successful Phenomena youth conference that hosted over 3000 delegates from Australia, New Zealand, and around the world.

In the fall of 2004, Pastor Phil approached Jurgen and Leanne about starting a church in San Diego, California. Having never even been to San Diego, they both were hesitant about moving but it didn’t take long before God confirmed the move. In the summer of 2005, Jurgen and Leanne and their three boys packed up all their belongings and moved to San Diego.

On August 20th, 2005, C3 San Diego had it’s first service and an attendance of 50 people. In 2008, after many years of wanting a girl to add to the family, Jurgen and Leanne welcomed beautiful baby Zoe into the Matthesius clan. In 2011 the first permanent C3 San Diego location was built in the Carlsbad area of San Diego which is about 30 minutes north of downtown. Then in the Summer of 2013, construction was completed on the new Central Campus located in the Clairemont/Kearny Mesa area of central San Diego. With the journey in San Diego just starting, Jurgen and Leanne are confident in knowing that these days are only the beginnings of the amazing things that God wants to do in San Diego!

Today, Ps Leanne ministers powerfully in the gift of healing and the prophetic; alongside her husband Jurgen as the senior pastors of C3 San Diego, a church of 6000+ strong.
