Our ministerial leadership

Trevor Saggers,
senior minister

Trevor is married to Sue, and they have three sons, Troy, Glenn & Scott, and three granddaughters, Milla, Chilli and Ellie. They, with their growing family, have been serving the LORD here at TGS since 2000.

“At the age of 29 some things happened in my life to cause me to think, ‘What’s the point of life?’ Not long after that I discovered that life is not actually about me and realised my need to put Jesus at the centre – where he should be. I also soon found myself leaving ‘The Shire’ in Sydney and enrolling at Moore College in 1994. And then in the year 2000 the Lord took us all to Cairns.”

Any chance he gets he loves to head off to the bush and the more remote the better. But most of all, he has an earnest desire to see people OF ALL AGES follow the Lord Jesus.

Chris Forder,
assistant minister (young adults)

Chris is married to Lesley and they have 3 children, Amelia, Lachlan and Anna. Chris is from Sydney where he was born and raised. Although growing up in church it wasn’t until he was 19 that he truly accepted Christ as Saviour and Lord of his life. From there Chris began to work in ministry. He started out in evangelism at Anglican Youthworks as a camping instructor. After that he went into youth ministry for 4 years before going to Sydney Missionary and Bible College to study a degree. After graduating Chris and the family came to Cairns. Chris and Lesley love to, (when they get the chance) play tennis, ride bikes, walk and watch movies. Their greatest passion is their relationship with Jesus and helping others have a relationship with him too.
