Originally from Adelaide, and after spending three years as Youth and Young Adult Pastors in Brisbane, 2013 saw Jodie and her husband Tim take the next step of faith in their journey, moving their lives to Sydney.  They have since had a very cute addition to their family, Frankie Joy Christinat, who will be one in June.  Jodie, Tim and Frankie attend C3 Church Silverwater and are currently overseeing the Youth Ministry there.  Day to day they run their Graphic Design and Clothing business  (www.loudwhisper.com.au / www.louderclothing.com.au) and ‘Louder Seminars‘, speaking to students in Schools helping them through some of the more tumultuous years of their life!

Over the years Jodie has been involved in all aspects of church life; including working as an Executive Assistant, Events coordinator, Youth and Young Adults Pastor, Worship Pastor and more! She has also worked with the Salvation Army, assisting at-risk young mums in an education and support role and she is an advocate for social justice. Her mandate is to be a person who inspires and empowers a generation with a different spirit; to give them keys that help navigate them through the tough times, conquering the ever too present spirit of defeat and coming out stronger with greater skills, abilities, tenacity and faith!

Jodie is energetic and full of life, we are sure that she will bring something unique to your Church and you will love her!

Jodie is a powerful and dynamic preacher. What really stands out is her explosive passion for young people and youth ministry. Jodie’s message at SG Silverwater was fun, fresh, relevant and life-changing. Get Jodie in a room with young people, the word of God and his presence and what you get is dynamite! I’ll have Jodie back to preach at SG Silverwater any day of the week!
