Leanne Matthesius

Conference Host, Lead Pastor, C3 San Diego

Leanne Matthesius along with her husband Jurgen are the senior pastors of C3 Church San Diego, a thriving church in southern California.

Leanne is a mother to 3 sons and 1 beautiful daughter and has been in full-time ministry for over 25 years.

Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine and refreshingly humorous. She moves powerfully in the anointing seeing many released and set free from the bondage and limitations keeping them from becoming all that God has designed them to be.

Leanne uses personal stories and testimonies to connect with people on a very real level. Her prophetic insight and practical down to earth ministry style will ensure her audience is refreshed, equipped and empowered to take on all that life has to offer.


Robert Madu

Author & Speaker

Robert is passionately in love with Jesus. For 13 years he has crisscrossed the globe, preaching the gospel and taking
every opportunity to tell people about the love of Jesus Christ.

He is a family man, husband to Taylor Madu, and father, to Everly Adair Madu, Robert Nnaji Madu III, and Remington Elaine Madu.

Robert presents the gospel in such a unique way, that you’re leaning in, holding on to every word that is spoken, as he paints
the beauty of the transforming, powerful, life-giving, word of God.

Robert is compelled, to make aware to every individual that God is for them and that He has a specific plan and purpose for every life.

In addition to his itinerate ministry, he serves on the teaching team at Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, TX, a church that he has called home since the age of 3.


Dave Gilpin

Senior Pastor, Hope City Church

In 1991, Dave and Jenny Gilpin came from Australia to pioneer Hope City Church in Sheffield, England. Dave was born in England and went to Australia when he was 5 years old. (His parents followed after thinking he may need some looking after.)
After attending short term Bible college, Dave and Jen became Youth Pastors in Brisbane and were part of the huge rising of the Assemblies of God churches in Australia. Upon seeing the Hillsborough Soccer Stadium disaster in 1989 they were prompted to church plant in the North of England in order to see the inroads the Australian church was having into mainstream society happen in the U.K.

Since that time, they have established congregations in Manchester (that has now become the Audacious City Church), Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, Sunderland, Birmingham Preston, London, York, Frankfurt (Germany), Accra (Ghana) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). The flagship Sheffield congregation is now a part of what is known as ‘One Church; all over the place’ with approximately two thousand people meeting across the congregations.

Sheffield and Leeds oversee Megacentres that provide conference facilities and community programs ranging from health and fitness to teaching English and computer skills, to children’s care and recreational facilities, as well as buzzing centres for the rest of church life.

Dave’s first two books were published by Monarch and have been recently republished under the titles of ‘If You Think You Can’ and ‘Think Twice’. His book ‘Jesus Save Me from Your Followers’ has proven to be popular and his follow-up book ‘Sacred Cows Make Great BBQs’ carries the same spirit of faith and wisdom. His first ‘humour’ book- ‘Rage Against Beige’- was bought by IKEA in the UK and spearheaded their national marketing strategy. Integrity has recently signed ‘The Devotional Series’ which includes four devotional books and three albums including ‘Devoted‘ from Hopecity and two instrumental albums. Dave’s Mind Map Series is his most ambitious project which looks at changing the way you think in order to influence the world around you, according to Romans 12:2.

The principal themes of Dave’s ministry include Faith, The Power of Originality, Renewing of the Mind as well as Leadership Principles for church health and strength.

Dave and Jen run both the national Whitefields Conference and the national ‘She Is’ Conference. Jen’s particular strength is in the prophetic and she regularly speaks into the lives of churches and teams.

In 2013 Hope City Church became a C3 Church which is overseen by PS Phil and Chris Pringle who are based at Oxford Falls, Sydney. Dave’s in good relationships in the U.K with Stuart Bell, Steve Campbell, Dave Sheerman, Dave Smith, Andy Elmes and John Greenow. He is also strongly connected relationally with both the Australian Christian Churches.


Darlene Zschech

Musician, Pastor & Speaker

Darlene Zschech is acclaimed all over the world as a composer, worship leader, pastor, author and speaker, and became most well known for her involvement in the worship team at Hillsong Church, Sydney, Australia over many years. Although she has achieved numerous gold albums and her songs are sung in many nations of the world, Darlene’s success simply stands as a testimony to her life’s passion for serving God and people with all her heart. Alongside her husband Mark, they are the Senior Pastors of Hope Unlimited Church (HopeUC) on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, which has now grown into India and the USA.

As a composer, Darlene is perhaps most famous for the chorus “Shout to the Lord”, a song that is sung by millions of churchgoers every week and has been covered by many other artists. In addition to “Shout to the Lord”, Darlene has written many songs through solo projects: “Kiss of Heaven”, “Change Your World”, “You Are Love”, “In Jesus Name” and “Revealing Jesus”, a live worship album recorded with the Grammy Award winning Israel Houghton. Through the Compassionart project in 2008, Darlene was honoured to have the privilege of writing with some of the most generous-hearted worship writers and leaders of our day.

Her latest live worship project was recorded at HopeUC, called “Here I Am, Send Me” where she co-wrote with some incredible writers of worship music including Martin Smith, Jenn Johnson, Paul Baloche and many faithful worship leaders from her own church. She has also recently released a Christmas album, “The Table”, with the HopeUC Worship team. Darlene is passionate about raising and training other worship pastors, leaders, teams and writers. To this end, she has penned five books – “Extravagant Worship”, “The Kiss of Heaven”, “The Art of Mentoring” and “Revealing Jesus” devotional, “Worship Changes Everything”. These titles combined have been translated into over 20 different languages. Darlene’s most recent book project that is scheduled for release is “The Golden Thread”.

It was during a Compassion trip to Central Africa in 2004 that Mark and Darlene were prompted to initiate Hope: Rwanda. Hope: Rwanda was a global endeavour designed to bring hope to a nation seemingly forgotten since the horrific genocide of 1994. The 100 Days of Hope (April 6 – July 15, 2006) project was strategically coordinated to cover the same 100 days that saw approximately 1 million people viciously slaughtered. Now called ‘HOPE: Global’ this organisation continues to bring hope and healing to Rwanda, and a new ‘HOPE’ has spread into other parts of Africa, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and India. The HOPE: Global team are excited about all the future endeavours that continue to gather great momentum.

Darlene and Mark live in the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales with their family Amy and son-in-law Andrew, Chloe and son-in-law Hosanna, Zoe Jewel, and beautiful granddaughters Ava Pearl, Ruthie Feather, Thea Mae and grandson Roman Emmanuel Mark. While they travel extensively and have the honour of working and ministering alongside amazing friends around the globe, the family remains Darlene’s highest priority. Darlene says, “First and foremost I am a woman who simply and wholeheartedly loves Christ, and serves Him through loving my family, serving the church, and speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
