    Inspire's Senior Pastors Don and Julia McDonell are an inspiring couple who love people and live life to the full. They are totally dedicated to see our generations live great lives through faith in Jesus Christ. "A spirit of faith" aptly describes this couple and Inspire Church is an extension of their passion and their devotion. Don and Julia live to Inspire all generations to live with eternal purpose. As Don puts it, "Its about relationship with God, you can have all the right ingredients for life but only the power of Jesus Christ can transform your life and shape your destiny".

    Our Church


    Planted in Albany in 1999, Inspire Church lives and breathes the people it serves. Inspire is a contemporary Christian Church based in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland. Inspire Church is a Spirit-filled, family-focused creative church that's incredibly passionate about the goodness of God. Inspire Church is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds are inspired to believe the impossible for their loves and grasp their God-given future with both hands - and have a lot of fun doing it.

    Our Team


    Wander into Inspire Church on any given day and you’ll feel like you’ve found your long lost extended family. We like having fun, we love having a laugh and we believe that the purpose of church is to 'do life together'. This means that we are passionate about raising up teams of people who can lead and grow the vision and heart of the church, connecting with their purposes in God. We love to see people grab hold of their passions and giftings and so, we raise up leaders, mentors and members to take an active part of the life of the church.


    Doing life together

    Inspire Church is built around people, so one of our biggest priorities is simply to do life together. We encourage you to get alongside like-minded people and build relationships with each other and this is where iGroups fit in. Inspire runs many different iGroups that take place weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

We value that as a larger movement of churches we can inspire, encourage and build each other up. We network closely with our Inspire family in Singapore and pastors Don and Julia McDonell serve as the senior pastors of the movement; working closely with our Singapore team and Pastors Hamish and Haidee.

    The presence of God inhabits the worship, prayer, and relationships.

    The community is filled with people connecting with God and responding to their Salvation. They wildly pursue God and have a passion to see His love known in and through their lives.

    It is a home for all, where people can belong before they believe.

    We see churches at different locations connected with one heart and remaining true and consistent with biblical principles.


    This is a church with one vision but many dreams. These dreams are activated by going beyond comfort zones and believing for the impossible. The church is multi-cultural and unified, it is Inspire. The lifestyle is contagious and empowering. Thousands are equipped through a message of Faith, Hope, and Love, which is life-changing and relevant.


    We see an amazing group of people who don’t just follow, but put their hands to the plough with their own personal gifts, without regret, shame, or guilt.

    They refuse to arrive and will do whatever it takes to be on the cutting edge. These people are totally committed, they count whatever the cost and pay whatever the price to see heaven on earth.

    It’s a church in the right place at the right time, doing all that God has called us to do through people who are generous and Kingdom-minded.

    We are an incredible blessing in our community; having facilities that enable people to be discipled, coached, and equipped 24/7 to fulfil their destiny for Christ.


    This church is a Holy Spirit place where healing, freedom, love, and change erupt within its walls. The people have an incredible attitude. We are inspirational and live life enthusiastically. The place where we get together is warm, friendly, and filled with excitement. Our city is blessed because of us!


    Inspire is, and will continue to become, the church we see!
