Get Wisdom: Living with Godly wisdom in a messed-up world.
Pastor Leanne Matthesius has been in full-time ministry for over 25 years. After serving as youth pastors in New Zealand and Australia, she and her husband Jurgen felt the call to launch a church, and in 2005, just one year later, they were sent out from Oxford Falls, Australia to San Diego, California to realize that dream. They are now the lead pastors of Awaken Church, a thriving, multigenerational, multicampus church that is known nationwide for being fresh, real, and powerful.
One of the first ministries Pastor Leanne established in San Diego was a transformative women’s movement called Cherish. The ministry has grown exponentially from 50 women in a middle-school auditorium to a city-wide outreach that influences and impacts the culture of southern California through Cherish Nights, weekly Cherish prayer meetings, Cherish TV, and an annual Cherish conference that, in 2019, packed out one of the largest conference venues in the city of San Diego.
Through the Cherish ministry, Leanne has helped thousands of women to connect with God and one another, to discover their value, confidence, and passion, and to follow the call of God in their lives with renewed grace, strength, and dignity.
Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine and refreshingly humorous. She moves powerfully in the anointing of God, seeing people released from the mental, emotional, and relational limitations that have kept them from becoming all that God has designed them to be. Through personal stories, testimonies, and prophetic insights, she connects with people on a practical level that leaves them feeling refreshed, equipped, and empowered to take on all that life has to offer.
Pastors Jurgen and Leanne have three sons and one beautiful miracle daughter, and their four healthy children are a testimony of God’s goodness and faithfulness in their lives.
