The Arts & Outreach with Marcy Paynter

Marcy Paynter knows how the arts & outreach work hand in hand.
She is the Creative Arts Director at Gateway Church Australia. Her husband Rick is the senior minister.  The church which has always been passionate about outreach began in 1986. Today the church continues to thrive with wonderful community initiatives including Gateways own theatre company.

Marcy who has a background in the arts was quite surprised when the Lord showed her that her unique talents and abilities could be used to reach many with the gospel. In many ways, Marcy undervalued her artistic contribution when it came to ministry and church life.

Today, many decades on, Marcy is a powerful voice to churches in Australia. She has the runs on the board, the battle scars and the victory stories to share with others. Her experience and expertise in regards to the arts and outreach are invaluable.
