At Ignite Life Church we are ready to embrace the mission of God that He has planned for our life.

As a church we pursue our values in: Expecting God to show up, that missions matter, starting and finishing together, prayerful responses, living our lives of influence, that people matter, passing on the good news, being faith filled, generous and living life to its fullest.

Known for their inspirational leadership and missional hearts, Ps. Keith and Peka Walters come from an evangelical pentecostal background and seek to spread the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Originally from New Zealand, the calling of ministry led them to what was then ‘Life Community Church’ which is now the Ignite Life Churches with multiple campuses both here and overseas. The journey to this point has been incredible and the best part is, "this is only the beginning!" 

This amazing couple are a genuine ministry team. To further the kingdom of God and spread the love of Christ lays at the heart of everything they do. They are proud parents of four adult children, two daughter inlaws, two son inlaws to be and Nana 'n Poppa to one grandson.
