Andrew Hamilton

Pastoral Team Leader

Andrew is the team leader at YCC. Andrew has been leading Quinns Baptist Church with Danelle since 2009 when they returned from a 6 month family holiday around Australia.

As Yanchep locals they are really excited at the opportunity to be part of a new church plant in their own community.

Andrew will work 2 days/week for both QBC & YCC as the team leader with a focus on leadership, teaching and blokey stuff, while Danelle will stay focused on the work at QBC for one day/week where she focuses on pastoral care and admin.

Andrew also runs his own business in irrigation and turf, while Danelle works at Quinns Baptist College in various admin roles and manages the Quinns Kids Out of School Hours Care.

Andrew can be often found at one of the local Yanchep beaches either surfing or taking pictures of the ocean - often with his drone. If you love the Yanchep beaches then be sure to check out his Facebook or Instagram page yanchepbeaches365 to see daily pics of the local beauty.

He's also a regular on the 98.5 Sonshine FM 'Big Brekkie' and there you can hear him rabbiting on about some of his pet ideas early in the mornings!

Ryan Christonsen


Ryan is also one of the founding pastors of YCC. He is currently with QBC and will work across both churches for 2 days/week.

He teaches, counsels and fixes stuff and he is also employed by the Quinns Baptist College as a chaplain.

He is married to Jen who home schools up in Yanchep and can he often be found down at the lagoon with a fishing rod, a kayak and an underwater camera.

You can check out some of his video work on his youtube channel.
