Our Team

Davo Gunning (Lead Pastor)

Davo and Megan have 3 wonderful daughters. Before entering pastoral ministry, Davo worked as an Outdoor Educator, which involved chucking kids of cliffs and telling them about Jesus (not necessarily in that order). Megan has a background in Occupational Therapy, but has taken some time out to focus on the family, at both church and home.

Damien Carson (Pastor)

Damien and Kelly have spent the last ten years in Adelaide as a ministry family. In the dark days of Windows XP, Damien worked in IT support for a bank. Today, he needs his kids to help him with his computer problems. Kelly is a CPA who has worked as an accountant but these days works part time in book-keeping so she can give more time to serving God’s family and her family.

Ben Harvey (Pastor)

Ben and Bron have four energetic young boys. Ben joined the team in February 2018 after arriving back from South Africa where they served as missionaries working with HIV/AIDS orphans and local church ministries. Ben had a radically ordinary encounter with Jesus in his early 20’s that lead him to take up formal studies at SMBC. In his spare time Ben enjoys lifting heavy objects, hospitality and making coffee. Bron, is a qualified primary school teacher that has chosen to focus on being a full-time mum. Now as a family they live to make Jesus known through their local communities and to the ends of the earth.
