Craig Ogden
Church Planters Coach

Craig lives on the northern outskirts of Melbourne with his wife, Vanessa, four children and one very hungry beaglier. With a Bachelor of Education, a Master of Divinity, and a Graduate Diploma of Bible and Ministry, Craig is currently the senior pastor at Plentylife Anglican Church in Mernda-Doreen. Under God’s call and empowering, Craig is passionate about pursuing the vision of a changed Australian church where people come to know Jesus, flourish with a vital sense of their participation in God’s work, and experience love and joy in simple, authentic families on mission. Craig is keen to see leaders engage in making disciples who in turn make disciples, and understand themselves as part of a movement of God’s people that is connected to and shaped by the movement Jesus himself began. As Catalyse Change’s Church Planters Coach, Craig has a vision to equip and encourage leaders and their teams to establish new church communities through disciple-making and mission. In his spare time, Craig can be found spending time with family and friends, listening to live music, going to the gym, and going to the movies.
