Josh Thomas - Lead Pastor
Hi, I am Josh.
My main roles at the moment are husband, father, and follower of Jesus. Outside of work most of my time is taken up with raising my four young children; Azaliah, Ezra, Zoelle and Zion. And I am lucky enough to do this with Marnel, my wife since 2012, who is an incredible friend and mother.
The main reason I work at Lesmurdie Baptist Church is because I am following the call God has on my life to use what is my hands to participate in telling people about Jesus. Telling people that following him leads to a better life, one that is aligned to a right relationship with our Heavenly Father.
And if I am not with my family, or at work, I am getting into a hobby or new interest. My hobby appears to be trying different hobbies. This drives my wife crazy, but keeps me sane.
Have a great day and remember that God made you and Jesus loves you.
Jared Kealley - Associate Pastor
G’day I’m Jared.
I am married to Andee and we have a teenage daughter. I have been in pastoral ministry since 2004 and commenced at Lesmurdie Baptist Church at the beginning of 2022. I am excited to be part of LBC as I am passionate about seeing people of all ages grow in their relationship with Jesus. In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, spending time with my family and taking time out in nature.
