Church Leadership


James and Danielle Howes

Howes family

James and Danielle’s involvement in this church goes back many years. Danielle was saved through Scripture classes in the local High School and discipled through Kyogle Christian Life Church during her teens.  After High School she attended Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Denver, Colorado for a six month Discipleship Training School.  She was truly blessed in this time and her heart for ministry was ignited.

James was raised in a family richly involved in a Baptist Church in the neighbouring town of Casino.  Being involved in the local Christian band scene that existed in his teenage years, his passion for music and for ministry was growing stronger by the year.

In 1999, James and Danielle were married and after a few months of seeking another church, they both felt led to return to Danielle’s home church.  During the next years at university (Danielle – Bachelor of Education; and James – Bachelor of Social Science) they took on the role at church as youth leaders.

Danielle got a teaching position at Casino Christian Community School.  James worked in a local retail shop for a year before heading back to university to get a Bachelor of Education.  James then got a teaching position at Summerland Christian College in Lismore and worked there for two years.  Throughout all this time they both continued to enjoy leading the youth of the church in the pursuit of intimacy with God.  The call of God to enter church ministry in a full time capacity was getting very difficult for them to ignore.

In 2007, James and Danielle felt led to attend the School of Ministry at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship in Canada. They spent a year in Canada and God transformed their lives during time.  Being in that environment allowed God to really deal with their hearts and prepare them for their lives ahead.

Upon returning to Kyogle, James and Danielle were employed part time by the church as Youth Pastors.  They spent nine months in this role before being passed on the baton of pastoring the church by Barry and Joan Winton (the Pastors at the time).  They were commissioned as Pastor’s on 22nd of March 2009.

James and Danielle have 5 amazing children.  They love Kyogle and they love their church.  They long to see the Kyogle community irreversibly affected by the supernatural power and love of Daddy God as he moves through his church.  They seek to bring the message of the cross not in words alone but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power so that people’s “faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.”

(1 Corinthians 2:4-5)
