Pastors Ben Windle and Cindi Windle began the journey of starting Lifeplace Church in Brisbane because they have a passion to see people discover Jesus, and to be a part of a church family that serves the community. They have a genuine love for people of all ages, and of all nationalities. Both raised in Brisbane and coming from ministry families, they have seen God do great things, but their eyes remain on the horizon with anticipation for all the future has!

They have been married since 2002. In 2008 they had the joy of welcoming their first child, Houston into the world, in 2010 came their second son, Benjamin ‘BJ’, and in December 2012 they welcomed a third son – Jameson.
