OUR HOSTS - BEN & LIBBY STAINES
Ben and Libby Staines began pastoring a church in the rural community of Narromine in 2004. As they raised their young family there God began to impress on them a heart and vision for regional and rural Australia and reaching people in both large and small communities. From Narromine a church was planted in Parkes followed by Forbes; and at the same time other churches became a part of the Generocity Church family across NSW. With expressions in over 10 locations Generocity Church has been able to connect with people all over Australia as well as starting a church in Nepal as they also minister to people throughout that nation through medical camps and a children’s welfare centre.
Generocity Church is passionate about people having an authentic relationship with God and with other people – this involves a contemporary approach to church life, discipleship and community engagement. Our hope is to Connect our Community to Christ in such as way that leads every person to become someone of courageous influence for the work of Christ no matter their sphere of influence, interest and responsibility.
Ben and Libby moved to the regional centre of Wagga Wagga in 2016 with their four children Isaac, Bianca, Abbie and Ethan. In 2017 with the help of an amazing local team planted another campus location of Generocity Church which has seen great growth and acceptance in the Riverina region.
