Ps Jeff & Karen Atherton are the senior pastors of People Builders Church Australia.
In response to a compelling God given dream (confirmed in many different ways) founding pastors Jeff & Karen Atherton and their two children (plus a few supportive friends) launched this new church in the nightclub basement of the Port Macquarie RSL in 2001. The church was called Eternity Christian Church and was birthed after 10 days of prayer and the full covering of Acts Global Churches. (Previously – Apostolic Church Aust)
Growth and momentum followed, and the church became established in the Port Macquarie community, expanding its operations with Youth, Children & Creative ministries plus Cert IV training and small groups.
In 2004 in response to another vision, referred to as “The epidemic of loneliness vision” we opened a Community Care Centre in the CBD, and have continued assistance to this day, with a new facility opening in mid 2020.
In 2009 there was a refocusing of vision with a name change to People Builders Church and today we see ongoing open doors of opportunity, for the flowing out of the life-changing message of God’s grace through Jesus Christ, to 1000s of people right across our city and beyond.
