Senior Leaders

Gideon & Catherine are the Senior Leaders and founders of Harmony Church. They have been married for 29 years and are the proud parents of four children. Having met due to their common interest in music, they have been involved in large Christian music events across Europe, Asia and Australasia. Together they have produced large nationwide events including ‘Pray for the City’, ‘March for Jesus’, ‘Billy Graham Global Mission’ as well as bringing a number of the worlds top Christian artists to NZ.

Gideon holds a Masters in Theology, while Catherine holds a Bachelor of Music and a Diploma in Adult Teaching & Learning.

In late 2007 the Hoekendijk’s felt a stirring for a new expression of Church, and in 2008 a group of other like minded people began to gather weekly in their home. February 15, 2009 saw the beginnings of Harmony Church. Today, Harmony is a city church that has a heart beat of ‘Passion for God, Compassion for People’.
