Hi! My name is Vanessa Hoyes. I am a lover of Jesus and His Church, and my mission is to see her leaders healthy and whole. If the soul of a leader is healthy, then the soul the people they lead will also grow healthier.  If the soul of your church is healthy, then the body connected will also be healthy and prosper.

Through my coaching, writing, resourcing and speaking, I aim to provide a safe place for leaders and teams to become healthy and whole.

My strengths include compassionate counselling, intuitive and learned leadership, collaborative connecting of mission to people, preaching, writing and transformative communication skills. I am an Enneagram Type Nine, who is skilled in mediation and peace making practices. I have a Synergistic leadership voice, and carry a spiritual gift of discernment and exhortation.  I am passionate about seeing people and teams experience transformation and growth as whole people.

I have 25 years of experience leading in the not-for-profit sector, church and community, alongside an entrepreneur husband. I am a trained Life Coach to individuals, teams & organizations. I am an Ordained Minister. I hold a Bachelors Degree in counselling. I have a license to practice in Quebec, Canada as a Naturo-Therapist and I am passionate about looking at the whole person when it comes to care and growth.

I communicate as authentically one-to-one as I do to the thousands and I am also passionate about raising and releasing the female voice and value across the earth.

In local church life my focus is always on women and the soul care of teams. In the wider church context I consult to leaders and teams around the world on the strategic, sustainable practices that can both care for a persons soul and see a church grow . These two Can go hand in hand. As of 2022, I now hold a license in Quebec as a Naturotherapist (General Therapy and Natural Wellness) as well.

Andrew and I have been married for 22 years. We met and married in 10 months and are continually committed to the glory of growing as two individuals with such diverse gift and grace, yielding that to the covenant of this sacred union that forms two into becoming one. And let's be honest to every couple who has led together in any way, shape or form.. marriage and ministry together can have great strength and great challenge. And we are always up for the journey that following Jesus brings.

It is also what we love helping others through because these tender intersections of marriage, ministry, family, church can all have complexities that no other vocation experiences. It is always where the fruit of our labour is most effective.

And then there are our prize, our daughters, our heroes. We love them with our whole hearts. Indianna Hope is a contemplative soul who sees things beyond her age and experience. She discerns people and situations with compassion and wisdom. Avalon Jade all about the people she does life with. Travel is not about a place, but about the people. She is confident in all different types of rooms and she loves fiercely. Eden Cleopatra will tell you exactly how it is with clarity and boldness. She is fun and witty and a truthteller who loves the beach. Sahara Justice is our rainbow baby who was our gift after losing Anastasia Zoe. She lights up a room and fill it with energy and words. She is our last and most indulged :)

They are daughters of pioneers and that comes with a cost and comes with a blessing. We are so proud of the way they have navigated life in three cities and about to navigate another move. They are our true delight and we love them deeply.

I am an experienced Minister of Religion and Qualified Counsellor with over 25 years’ in Pastoral Ministry and Counselling. Married to Andrew 22 years, with 4 teenage daughters. They are our joy and delight to raise and release.

In Australia, I previously worked as Co-Senior Pastor of Generation Church, one of Australia's fastest growing churches from 2005 - 2014. Together, we planted and revitalised churches in Queensland, Northern NSW, Australia; Bali, Indonesia & Chicago, USA. In that same decade of my thirties, we pioneered the Soul Centre Gold Coast, a Food Bank and Resource Organization with a mission to help marginalized communities on the Gold Coast, becoming one of the largest contributors in this area in just six years, with social and governmental recognition. 

I also launched a Pregnancy Loss Ministry locally and internationally after the loss of our fourth baby girl Anastasia Zoe. This ministry Known, supports women, men and families who have been impacted by pregnancy loss in all its forms.
 
In 2015 we relocated our family to French speaking Quebec and pioneered Resurgent Church in Montreal. We were planted there for 7 years amongst the most unreached people group to the gospel in North America.  We loved our season there, the people became like family. After these last 7 years we recognized the need for a church there to be anchored to a family of churches who could sustain the work in the province. So in the summer of 2022 we transitioned the leadership of our church to Global Heart for the generations to come. It was our honour to pioneer a life-giving work that shaped us in ways we would never have imagined.
