Adem and Grace have been Lead Pastors of Freedom Centre for the last 10 years. Pastor Adem got saved from a life of crime and drugs and had a radical transformation through the power of Jesus.

They both carry the fire of the Holy Spirit and are super passionate about seeing people have a life-transforming experience through Jesus. They moved to Tauranga from Melbourne, Australia and had their three kids; Eva, Eliana and Josiah all in Aotearoa. As a family, they love seeing God's kingdom expanded!
