Our Story

Glow Church was founded in 2013 on the Gold Coast, Australia by Joel & Ellen Cave. What started as a small group of 20 people, has quickly become one of the fastest growing churches in Australian history. The dynamic growth and intentional raising up of leaders, led to the planting of other locations throughout Australia. Glow is now a global church with multiple locations in the United Kingdom and soon to launch into the USA and South Korea.
Glow Church is genuinely an act of God's kindness and grace. A church committed to seeing the lost found, prodigals come home and people dream and see vision come into reality. It's a church full of all different ages, diversity, ethnicity and a commitment to friendly, genuine, authentic community. Glow is a place to call home and we invite you to join us in person at one of our locations this weekend or connect with us for our live weekly service, accessible through the online campus or YouTube channel.

Senior Pastors

Joel & Ellen Cave have been married for 21 years and have two teenage daughters and an 8 year old son, who keeps the whole family in line. Joel, with a background in extensive ministry before founding Glow, was a High School teacher specialising in Business & Economics. These two backgrounds combined, have played a unique role in leading the church and keeping up with the demands associated with explosive growth and sustainable systems. Ellen is highly creative and loves outworking her gifts through creating incredible atmospheres and coming alongside leaders. 
Joel & Ellen are both unique in their individual giftings but together are great role models to other couples, parents and young people. Their lives inspire others to lift the ceiling of what's possible with faith and capacity, while also keeping very authentic and genuine in all areas of life.

What We Believe

We believe in one true God who is eternal and Creator of all things. He co-exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He loves all and wants to be in relationship with us.

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and through it God speaks today. It is infallible, authoritative and everlasting. It is total truth and provides us with principles for every area of life.

We believe that sin has separated all of us from God and only God can provide a remedy.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ came into the world as our Saviour. Jesus died on a cross and rose from the dead and all who repent and believe in Him can have forgiveness and eternal life. As believers we are baptised in water by full immersion as a public declaration of our faith in Jesus.

We believe that God’s Spirit both indwells and empowers the believer. The Spirit filled life gives us the ability to live with Godly character and provides us with spiritual gifts that enable us to fulfil God’s purposes on Earth.

We believe that the church is the ‘body of Christ'. As we meet together regularly, in both large groups and in homes, we grow in our faith, fulfil the great commission, and build long lasting relationships.

We believe in miracles.

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back.
