the acres family
Meet Steve Acres, the vibrant Pastor of the Potters House Christian Centre in Townsville.
Steve & his lovely wife, Sharon, have four wonderful children, three of which are now in their 20’s. They have invested their lives into God’s ministry living in the Northern Territory including almost 10 years in the red centre of Alice Springs. They have pastored in Adelaide and more recently, returned from full-time missionary work in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. In that city, Steve worked closely in seeing “rascals” - the local word for murderers, bank robbers, criminals and the like - lay down their guns and give their lives to the glorious service of Jesus Christ!
No strangers in trusting Christ, they have seen firsthand His hand of protection over their lives from malaria, gun fights, machete wielding drunkards, and much more.
Over years they have experienced many exciting moments and witnessed God do incredible things like heal broken bones, mend broken lives and even restore broken marriages.
In Him can truly be found a most satisfied life.
Steve has a considerable background helping those bound by all kinds of substance abuse. He has worked in areas such as alcohol and other drugs, mental health, disability and counselling. Sharon has gained wonderful experience through her mothering skills and is able to assist in maternal & feminine areas where Steve may not... Their marriage has stood the test of time and is a testimony of what Christ can do in lives submitted to Him.
Together they believe there are people in Townsville that want to know Jesus Christ intimately… People who desire to have His positive impact on their lives:
We offer you an open invitation to come join us and declare excitedly: You’ll never look back!
