Live for Jesus & share His love.
Steve & Carlene Murray
Steve and Carlene have been pastoring Lifezone Church since 2008.
They met in Rotorua, spending most of their late teenage years in the same youth ministry. Steve quickly figured out that Carlene was too good to lose - he asked her to marry him dating only one week! Carlene thought this was moving way too fast, and politely declined, asking him slow down. One week later, Steve proposed for the second time and this time Carlene said, "Yes!".
They have since had four children: Tyla, Malachi, Xara, and Bailey, and often have many more children/ teenagers/ adults filling their house - whether living with them, or just visiting what Carlene affectionately calls “the zoo”!
Steve loves hunting in the bush, cooking on his Webber, and has the biggest sweet tooth. Carlene is a gifted seamstress and enjoys looking after her vegetable garden.
