Meet our Staff

Grant Hendry – Senior Pastor

Grant has been Senior Pastor of NBBC since early 2012, after 14 years of pastoral ministry in beautiful Busselton. Prior to that, he thoroughly enjoyed working as a pharmacist. Grant and his wife Maree have three adult children, Ashlynne, Caleb & Breanna. In the rare moments of spare time, Grant loves creating things in his shed, and going on 4WD camping holidays. Grant is convinced that the life message of Jesus lives on through the local church, and that there is no situation, life, family or city that God can’t restore and renew. Grant sees his role as being a ‘leader of leaders’ to equip, encouraging and release others into ministry to grow God’s kingdom in the northern suburbs of Perth and to the ends of the earth.

Brad Vigus – Pastor: Sunday @6

Brad started working at North Beach in mid-2016. Before joining the NBBC team Brad has served in ministry at Curtin University with the students in the AFES Christian Union, and was also pastor at Dalkeith Baptist Church. Brad enjoys opening the Bible with people and helping them to consider Jesus and His gospel. Brad is married to Shona and has three daughters and enjoys time with the family playing games or enjoying a pizza and movie night together. For Brad a nice day off is a mixture of exercise (running or swimming), along with music and coffee.

Anton Hallam – Pastor: Youth and Young Adults

Merv Hodge – Pastor of Group Life

Bruce Miller – Pastor: Pastoral Care

Bruce has been engaged in pastoral ministry for over 20 years, in both NSW and W.A. churches. He has 4 adult children and a growing number of grandies. His wife Carolyn enjoys the mix of school-teaching and pastoral work as time allows. On the church’s Pastoral Care team Bruce loves to sit down with people, hear their stories, and encourage others in their spiritual growth. Sharing from God’s Word, whether with the few, or the many, is always a privilege and a delight. Spare time is spent gardening, puzzle-ing, or playing (not nearly enough!) golf.

Ashlynne Davis- Childrens Ministry Worker

Sue Dutton –  Music Ministry Leader

Kaye Tranter – Administration Manager

Kaye is the mother of three wonderful adult children and their lovely spouses, granny to an ever growing number of grandies and grand-dogs. She has always loved being a ‘mum’ and finds wearing the hat of being a ‘granny’ the best ever. Kaye has loved being a part of the NBBC family for the past 20+ years, learning lots along the way. Kaye is practically part of the furniture in the office, saying she was ‘terrified to begin with but in reality finds it a real blessing, privilege and joy to be in this God given role, working alongside this great team, getting to know people and seeing how God takes them along their journey’. She enjoys a good movie and loves watching basketball (especially if she knows any of the players)!

Michael Venter – Ministry Training Strategy (MTS) Apprentice

Michael has been attending NBBC since May 2019 and began working as a full-time ministry apprentice in July 2021. He has worked in a variety of jobs, but loves the home he has found here and the wonderful staff team he gets to walk alongside. He has a passion for working with youth & young adults and loves seeing them grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus. Michael’s weeks are full of exciting opportunities: reading the Bible 1-to-1; studying at Trinity Theological College; Friday night youth group; Sunday morning youth Bible studies; staff meetings; as well as getting involved in the Sunday services. He has recently joined the mission team and is excited to encourage people to take the greatest news ever told, the Gospel, overseas as long-term, cross-cultural missionaries. When he’s away from the office, you’ll most likely find him contemplating life as he walks by the sea, listening to country music, or out on the golf course.
