My name is Al Burke and I have been the minister here at Yamba since January 2009. I am married to Naomi since December 1993 and we have 4 children: Ruben 1996, Amelia 1997, Bronte 1999, Enoch 2001. I enjoy watching most sports (especially the ones the kids play), playing golf, exercising from time to time, and BBQ’s with family and friends. I love seeing people grow in God’s word, being involved in church life and our community. My aim for our church and myself personally is to continue growing as a follower of Jesus.
G’day! I am the assistant minister at Yamba, having started in January 2015. My passions include God and his word, people, most sports, coffee and I continue to enjoy building Lego. I married Katherine in 2010 and she is a Primary School Teacher. A perfect day for me would involve an early swim at the beach, reading some of God’s word, a good latte coffee with someone to talk with, a competitive game of sport, quality time with Katherine building Lego together, listening to some good hits from Midnight Oil and eating good food throughout the day. I particularly hope to serve God and the community of Yamba, by connecting kids, youth and adults to Jesus, and helping them grow as followers of Jesus.
Hi, my name is Lyndall Tarasenko and I am the women's assistant at Yamba Presbyterian Church. I am married to Paul since 1992 and have 1 daughter born in 1996. My main role is being available for women to assist and encourage them in their walk with Jesus. I love to meet with women, share their lives and assist them in any way I am able. I am also involved with children's ministry by teaching Scripture at Yamba Public school, assist with running kids Club for Primary School aged children and facilitate mainly music for pre-school aged children. I love God, my family, craft (especially scrapbooking and card making), sewing, daily gym sessions and my Maltese Shitzu doggy Bubbles. I look forward to sharing Jesus with people I meet and help people grow in their knowledge and love of Him and the great hope we have in His amazing plan of salvation for everyone who trusts in Him.
