Ps Lance and Belle Wolter

Gold Coast Service Pastor & wife

Ps Lance & Belle were married in 2006 and started leading Hope Church Gold Coast. As time went on they began to also become more and more involved with our other churches and missional work, especially in Africa. In late 2018 they both took a big leap of faith and stepped out to relocate to Southern Africa for a season, all to help out in a greater measure with our missions and church planting efforts there. As a result of the generous giving and prayers of the church, they are now serving over 100 churches and developing community works for the poorest of the poor. They love Africa and have also adopted two beautiful children, Michael and Hadessah.
