I'm passionate about helping people see the beautiful character of God as revealed in Jesus. This quote captures it really well: "God is like Jesus. God has always been like Jesus. There has never been a time when God was not like Jesus. We haven’t always known this. But now we do." –Brian Zahnd

Kasia Fijolek - Youth Worker

Kasia Fijolek joined KBC staff team in 2017 as the Youth Worker. Kasia’s passion is to help youth grow in their faith and to lead them in understanding of what it means to have a personal relationship with our Saviour (and to help youth realise the importance of growing in a church family & the community).

Inspired by the words of the Apostle Paul from 1 Timothy 4:12, Kasia has begun her ministry as a teenager; working with children, youth, young adults in Australia, Europe and South America. She strongly believes there is a huge potential in our youth and the next generation. Kasia endeavours to help youth find their place in God’s kingdom and to support them throughout their daily life.

Age is just a number. You are never too old/young to pursue your dreams.

David Garland - Young Adults Worker

David Garland joined KBC staff team in 2018 as the Young Adults Worker and the Youth and Young Adults Teaching Ministry Coordinator. David is married to Rachel and they have five kids. David loves connecting with people who are new to our church or new to Christianity altogether and he is especially passionate about supporting and mentoring young adults in their walk through life as a Christian in todays world. It’s about those experiencing University for the first time, or starting their first full-time job, or first getting married or any of the other ‘firsts’ that can easily turn your life up-side-down without friendly help and guidance.

I don’t see young adult discipleship as being as formal and structured and ‘churchy’ as others might. I see it as something that comes out of intentionally spending time with and building relationships with the right people, people who are a little further along the path you are on in life. Being intentional about this makes a huge difference to your future.
