Meet Our Staff

Bethlehem Lutheran Church is blessed to have two full time Pastors, a part time Youth & Young Adults Coordinator and an office which is staffed Monday to Friday. Please contact any of our staff (via the church office) for more information.

Pastor Fraser Pearce

Senior Pastor

I have served as senior pastor at Bethlehem since April 2010. Before that I served as pastor at Bethlehem, Bendigo, Victoria, (2005-2010), and as associate pastor at St Paul's, Box Hill, Victoria (1998-2005). It is a blessings to serve in a team ministry with Pastor Joshua and the other staff at Bethlehem. As well as my duties at the congregation, I also have responsibilities to the wider church, including membership on the Lutheran / Roman Catholic Dialogue, and the Commission on Theology and Inter Church Relations.

I am married to Margaret, and have four children: Oscar, Francesca, Emmanuelle, and Daniel. I enjoy music, good conversation, and low-stress exercise.

Lisa Thiele

Office Administrator

I have been in ministry at Bethlehem since 2011. I am thankful for the community at Bethlehem. I pray that God will continue to work through His Word to unite us and strengthen us in our faith.

Church Council

Bethlehem Lutheran Church

Bethlehem Lutheran Church is governed by the Church Council, which is currently made up of nine members plus the two pastors. The Council represents a good cross section of the Bethlehem community and meet together monthly to discuss all matters relating to the Church.
