Pastors Graham & Julie

Hi we are the senior Pastors of Aspire Church, Graham and Julie Shand.  We have been married for 36 years and have 3 amazing kids, Hannah, Jared and Caleb. We love doing life together. Breakfast and good coffee in a classy coffee shop is definitely a favorite.

Our passion is to equip people to live victorious lives through faith in Jesus, so they can be all that God has called them to be to influence those in their world.

Graham & Julie have been senior Pastors for over 30 years. During this time they have planted churches and are currently leading Aspire Church. Their ministry has taken them to nations across the world.

Pastor Graham has led the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) City South Region of Melbourne and currently is on the ACC State Executive Team. He is also leading  the ACC VIC Mentoring Matters Program for Senior Pastors.
