Hi, my name is Rob Sharp and I’m the Pastor of Harbour Church. I’m married to Cass and our kids are Nathaniel (16) and Caitlin (13).
Jesus has been impacting me my whole life. Through my parents as they lived and shared the gospel of Jesus with me and my sisters. Growing up our family belonged to Dapto Anglican Church and God used those faithful Sunday school teachers and Youth Leaders to build on the foundation of faith my parents laid. This is a key motivation for me to value the ministry of family and the Church, in partnership.
God has given me lots of great ministry opportunities to serve Him. After school as an Electrician, there were heaps of times I could share with the guys the hope I had in Jesus and answer their many questions. I worked for Youthworks in Camping ministry for four years getting to share the message of Jesus. Then I studied at Moore Theological College from 2002-2005, which was a great privilege. There I was equipped with the tools to keep learning and teaching others from the Bible . I’m an ordained Anglican Minister. After College I served at Narellan Anglican Church before heading to the Coast.
Being the Pastor of Harbour Church is a great privilege and an exciting opportunity to be a part of what God is going to do in this Church. Our family has been part of Harbour Church since Christmas 2009 and it’s been fantastic. We have been welcomed into a church community and into people’s lives.
Harbour Church began in the July of 2007 and God has been growing it ever since. On 1 March, 2011 we became a recognised Anglican Church, after a unanimous vote from our church members to go independent. This was a significant stage in the life of our church. God has continued to be at work in us and through us as a community of His people. There are a number of great ministries run by Harbour Church and it's fantastic partners. If you'd like to find out more about Jesus, Harbour Church and becoming a Partner with us, please contact me. I'd love to have a chat with you, so we can get to know each other and I can share with you what God's doing at Harbour Church.

Bram & Liana Leslie Youth Pastors of Harbour Youth (Part-Time)
G’day, we are Bram and Liana Leslie, the Youth Pastors here at Harbour Church. We’ve been married since December 2018 and love serving God together.
Liana is a delightful young go-getter with a beautiful smile like a monkey with a new banana and Bram is a groovy FunkMaster® with outrageous moves sure to set fire to any dance-floor.
Having both grown up hearing about God’s love for us we both have been fully devoted to living for Jesus as number one since high school. We met in January 2016 while studying at Youthworks Year 13 program where we graduated with a Diploma of Christian Studies.
One of the best parts of youth ministry is the opportunity we have to connect and develop meaningful relationships with teens. During our high school years going to youth group and church were vital in both of us coming to know Jesus and our Saviour and our King. These formative years are pivotal in anyone’s life and so we are privileged to do life alongside the youth of Harbour Church.
Outside of youth ministry we are both students. Liana studies floristry using her keen eye to make intricate designs from God’s beautiful creation. Bram is studying music with the dream of being a rockstar but the slightly more realistic goal of music teaching.
If you want to know more about ourselves, the youth ministries at Harbour Church or why we think Jesus is so awesome, we’d love you to get in touch.
