I grew up in Fiji to missionary parents. We were affiliated with the Open Brethren Church. I became a Christian at the age of 8 and was baptised at 15. My church life was based on solid biblical teaching and I’m very grateful for this. It has given me a good foundational knowledge of the Bible. Over the years, and through various life experiences the head knowledge has transitioned to a heart knowledge of a God who wants to be intimately involved in every aspect of my life, who loves me with an everlasting love and who “knows the plans” (Jeremiah 29:11) he has for me. I believe hugely in the active, living, word of God and the importance of listening to God speak through His word.
I am married to Andrew Goold and we have three children. Two boys, Addison and Hadlee and a daughter, Jessina. Our family loves to travel and really enjoy the times we get away together.
Bethlehem Baptist Involvement
From the first day that we came to BBC, we felt we belonged. There was something very special about this church and we have realised over the years that there is a genuine sense of care and love among the family here. A true and tangible outliving of an inward conviction. I very quickly became involved in the music ministry and enjoyed this. I worked here at BBC in an admin role for two and a half years. For three years I was a life group leader at Wired, leading the year 12 and then year 13 girls. I attend Serious Coffee regularly and am so grateful for this wonderful group. I am on the organising committee for Time Out and really love this event and the way it reaches into the lives of women in our community. I have served on Eldership for the last two and a half years. It has been an honour and a privilege to serve as an Elder at BBC.
