Pastor Doug Ponder spent 17 years serving in the US military. In 2004 he was deployed to the city of Alice Springs and it was there that someone shared the Gospel with him, unable to deny the truth of God's Word he repented of his sins and at 38 years of age he was radically born again. Upon getting saved Doug began to feel the call of God to preach the Gospel, he then began to orient his life in that direction, with every decision made with that calling in mind.

He met and married his wife Anita and became a disciple and Bible study leader in the Potters House Church in Beechboro, Western Australia. In 2019 he was ordained into the ministry and became the pastor of the Potters House Church in Alice Springs.


Doug is now pastoring the church in Browns Plains along with his wife Anita and their daughter. They have a heart for people and have seen many lives changed by the power of Jesus Christ. They are excited about all that God is doing in the Logan area.


Jesus said these words "Go into all the world and preach the gospel..." The word 'Gospel' literally means 'Good News', and it stands in contrast to the bad news that we are saturated with everyday through the media.

The good news is that through Jesus' death on the cross, our sin has been paid for; and through His resurrection from the dead, we can experience His power to forgive our sins, heal our sickness, break our addictions, restore our marriages and change our lives.


Our vision is to spread that good news so that everyone would come to know Jesus personally as their Lord and Saviour


Everything we do – whether it be our Sunday and Wednesday church services, our bands, park outreaches, street preaching, door to door and street evangelism is aimed at fulfilling this vision.
