LOVE NZ, want to GROW in Jesus and His word?
We love empowering, discipling, and growing God's people through Jesus Christ. Our heart and passion is to equip the next generation in fundamental teaching, practical leadership and uncomfortable character development.
At AKONGA, we believe in Holy Spirit filled, Biblically foundational discipleship that transforms lives. KVCC is the most beautiful place to encounter the living God, grow in Stillness and Silence and see God work in real transparent ways. Living in the Coromandel of New Zealand we live minutes away from the Coast, minutes away from some of the most incredible world class hiking/tramping and an hour's drive to some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever set foot on.
Do you want an experience that you will take with you for the rest of your life?

A Little about us!
The Taylor’s have been working in Ministry for their entire married life. They met in New Zealand (Sheli from Canada, Phil from NZ) at a Christian Army Course where they received their Christian Ministry and Evangelism Certificates. Phil went on to explore training in Kinesiology and Teaching; Sheli, Directed a Camp in Southland, NZ. They have just returned to New Zealand after 7 years in Canada where they worked with Youth for Christ and Christian Camping in Alberta and BC.
They are both extremely passionate about Discipleship in an emotionally healthy, Holy Spirit filled way as they walk with people while God transforms them by the renewing of their minds, enabling their Spirits, and completing the work He has started in each incredible, unique son or daughter for His glory and the establishment of His Word in their lives. They enjoy exploring who God is and embrace the mystery of being still with him. They are both confident teachers and facilitators and enjoy bringing the word of the Lord in their own vulnerable, authentic walk with Jesus.
The Taylors Live at Kauaeranga Valley Christian Camp with their two children; Alzora and Jedi, and their cat T-REX.
