Leanne Matthesius along with her husband Jurgen are the senior pastors of C3 Church San Diego, a thriving church in southern California.
Leanne is a mother to 3 sons and 1 beautiful daughter and has been in full time ministry for over 14 years.
Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine, and refreshingly humourous. She moves powerfully in the anointing seeing many released and set free from the bondage and limitations keeping them from becoming all that God has designed them to be.
Leanne uses personal stories and testimonies to connect with people on a very real level. Her prophetic insight and practical down to earth ministry style will ensure her audience is refreshed, equipped and empowered to take on all that life has to offer.
I have been so blessed in my lifetime to be the recipient of such incredible role models. My life was changed when I stepped through the doors of a C3 church almost 18 years ago...what was broken and dead in my life was restored and brought back to life!
I am a believer that the right kind of role model in the right kind of church has the power to alter someone's destiny forever! God is looking for women who will take up the call and become their "sister’s keeper" and do whatever it takes to model Jesus to a world that is desperate to be shown the right pathway in life. To whom much is given, much is required, and Jesus commands those who have freely received to freely give!
What a privilege it is to be able to serve the women of America!
America is such a magnificent place! Built on a dream and a desire for freedom it's still a nation that epitomizes liberation and a land where anything is possible! In the U.S. during World War 2 the image of Rosie the riveter became a famous icon as women stepped up to lend a hand while their men were at war.
Something shifted in the heart of the women in this country during that era. No longer were women confined to a one dimensional stereotype, but they began to enlarge the place of their tent and become builders and contributors to the world outside their own family unit. In this expansion we have seen the greatness, capacity and potential that lay on the inside of every woman come forth in a feminine but powerful way.
Today we are seeing incredible ground broken by women in many cities across America.
C3 Las Vegas led by the vivacious and beautiful Mayra Rodriguez is one such ministry that is having a huge impact as the women step forward. The Latino community in Las Vegas had long been steeped in religious tradition and was not truly expressing what we all know the Latinos to be…full of life, joy and colour! Ps Mayra and her team have bought the life, colour and purpose back to the women of Las Vegas. With her passion, humour, warmth and authenticity she is embracing the women of her community with the message of salvation and purpose! I was recently at a women's event she led and was so impressed by her leadership; she is relaxed, fun and refreshing but still maintains a beautiful spirit of excellence that is a true expression of the greatness of our God.
The lovely Keira Smallcombe who is less than 2 years into a church plant in Silicon Valley is making such a difference through her sweet yet powerful generationally inclusive women's movement. Women of all ages are welcomed, inspired and released into their calling through Keira's broad and secure leadership. She has managed in a short time to create an environment where women feel valued, empowered and commissioned. Watch this space because Keira is a true mover and shaker in the C3 movement...I heard her minister recently and was blown away by her maturity and the bigness of her spirit!
In San Diego we are seeing women's lives changed on a daily basis through consistent discipleship and a releasing and empowering to do something in their lifetime for the expansion of Gods Kingdom. The fruit has been astounding and is a true testament to the fact that every woman is pregnant with potential and we are each called to be spiritual midwives to help Her bring forth what God has called her to carry to this earth.
So so many great things happening over here...but finally I must give a HUGE shout out to one of our favourite people pastor Jill Sweetman. Jill has made it so easy to serve and build in the US. You would be hard pressed to find a more honourable and noble woman on the earth today. She is a true hero and champion and has been such a godly example and blessing to me and to so many other pastors in the Americas. We are excited to see her step into the new season God has for her and pastor Dean. They are loved beyond measure by all the pastors in our country and we know they will continue to bring wisdom strength and encouragement to all they serve alongside.
Love Leanne Matthesius
