CHERYN POUNDER

WOMEN’S MINISTRY COORDINATOR

 
Cheryn is passionate about helping and supporting women of all ages to grow in their faith and walk. Growing up with horses and attending a riding camp she met the Lord at age 12, and from that time she has sought to be actively involved in church life and ministry. In 1986 she married Andrew and they are blessed with a son and two daughters and recently welcomed a grandchild into their family.
 
Her ministry draws on a range of experience including her involvement in a new church plant in Victoria, working with women as they establish their faith journey, evangelism, leading Bible studies, and hospitality.
 
In 2012, Cheryn & Andrew moved onto a sailing vessel in order to share life, faith and the gospel along the eastern seaboard of Australia. This ministry expanded to serve with Operation Mobilisation International (OM) on board their ship, Logos Hope, which provides ministry to many people, living alongside 400 crew, representing some 65 nations of the world. This provided wonderful insight into the wider church and the needs of people from many walks of life.
Cheryn loves a home filled with people, sitting on a sunny Sunday afternoon with a good book, creating gardens filled with flowers, and on fine days being immersed in Gods creation sailing with her husband Andrew.
